وَوَرِثَ سُلَيْمَانُ دَاوُودَ ۖ وَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ عُلِّمْنَا مَنْطِقَ الطَّيْرِ وَأُوتِينَا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ ۖ إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَهُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْمُبِينُ

People cannot remain exactly as they were during the blessed month of Ramadan, in terms of their regularity and steadfastness in performing certain acts of worship. On the other hand, they must not stop doing good deeds completely and forsake all virtue just because Ramadan is over. It is injudicious to suddenly abandon everything and stop performing all goods deeds. Therefore, one should not abandon fasting, Qiyaam (optional night prayers), recitation of the Quran, supplication and so on. One needs to perform these deeds, even if it is on a less regular basis. If a slave of Allah The Almighty is accustomed to performing certain acts of worship and is compelled to stop doing them due to travel or sickness, then Allah The Almighty will continue to reward him for these deeds, even if he does not perform them, because he used to perform them frequently. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: “If a slave becomes sick, Allah Says to the honorable recording angels: `Record for my slave the same (good) deeds until I either take his soul (i.e., cause him to die) or grant him health (i.e., cure him from his sickness).” This indicates the benefit of constantly being engaged in acts of obedience and worship.

It is known and understood that wealth belongs to Allah The Almighty and that He Appointed His slaves as His successors to see how will they act. He Will Ask them about it when they stand before Him. How did they collect it? And how did they spend it? Whoever earned it from lawful sources and was a good successor so that he spent it in the way of obeying Allah The Almighty and to attain His pleasure will be rewarded for acting properly. Whoever collected it from unlawful resources and was a bad successor by spending it on impermissible things will be punished and this will be the reason for his misery.

That is why the Muslim should observe what Allah The Almighty Loves with regards to his wealth if he wants to be successful in the Hereafter. He should accustom himself to hasten as much as he can to every field in which Islam urges spending and quit every field in which Islam prohibits spending. From among the greatest issues that Allah The Almighty Legislated for His slaves in the month of Ramadan is charity and spending by providing for and helping the needy and cooperating with Muslims. Many texts and reported citations clarify the virtue of charity for the sake of Allah The Almighty and out of seeking His Pleasure. Here are some to name but a few:

1- It is a great mercy that urges Muslims to do good, help the needy, be generous to the poor, sympathize with widows, wipe the tears of orphans, and be kind to them and make them happy. Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan – it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.} [Quran 57:18].

The month of Ramadan is a great opportunity for returning to Allah The Almighty with repentance. It is the month of mercy, erasing mistakes, expiating evil deeds, salvation from Hellfire and attaining Paradise. The fortunate person is he who knows this and hastens to the actions that draw him near to His Lord by turning to Him in repentance, seeking forgiveness and feeling regret for all his slips and sins.

If one does not repent in Ramadan, then when will he? If one does not repent when the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hellfire are closed and devils are chained up, then when will he repent? When will he give up committing sins?

It is the month of repentance, forgiveness, salvation form Hell fire and the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ), said: “May his nose be rubbed in the dust, a man for whom Ramadan comes and then goes before he is forgiven!” [At-Tirmithi; Al-Albaani: Saheeh]

Why do we not repent while Allah The Almighty stretches out His Hand to the seeker of repentance and opens the door of His repentance to those who feel regret (for their sins)? It was narrated on the authority of Abu Moosa Al-Ash‘ari  may  Allah  be  pleased  with  him that the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ), said: “Allah The Almighty stretches out His Hand at night to accept the repentance of those who did wrong during the day, and He stretches out His Hand during the day to accept the repentance of those who did wrong during the night. (This will continue) until the sun rises from the west.]” [Muslim]. Continue reading

Muslims should not neglect the seasons of worship; rather, they must be among the first to excel in and compete in them. Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {So for this let the competitors compete.}[Quran 83:26]

So, we must try our best to receive the month of Ramadan in the following recommended ways: 
The first way: Supplicate Allah The Almighty to keep you alive and in good health until Ramadan comes so that you will be able to actively worship Allah The Almighty. It was narrated on the authority of Anas ibn Maalik, may Allah be pleased with him, that when the month of Rajab came, the Prophet,  sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ), said: “O Allah, bless Rajab and Sha‘baan for us, and let us live till the coming of Ramadan.” [Ahmad and At-Tabaraani] The righteous predecessors used to supplicate Allah The Almighty to let them live until the coming of Ramadan and to accept it from them. At the sighting of the new moon, supplicate Allah The Almighty saying: “O Allah, let this moon come to us with security and faith; with safety and Islam; and guidance to what You love and approve. My Lord and your Lord is Allah.” [At-Tirmithi, Ad-Daarimi, and Ibn Hibbaan: Saheeh]
The second way: Thanking Allah The Almighty for attending this month. In his book Al-Athkaar, Imaam An-Nawawi  may Allaah have mercy upon him says, “It is recommended for the person who experiences an obvious favor or is protected from an obvious curse that he prostrates in gratefulness to Allah The Almighty or praises Him duly.” Among the greatest blessings Allah The Almighty grants the slave is guiding him to obedience and worship. When Ramadan comes and the Muslim is in good health, this is a great blessing worthy of thankfulness and it requires the praise of Allah The Almighty Who bestows it. All perfect and continuous praise be to Allah The Almighty as suits the majesty of His Face and His Great Authority.

On the authority of Abū ʽAbdur-Raḥmān, ʽAbdullāh, son of ʽUmar bin al-Khaṭṭāb,who said:  I heard the Messenger of Allah () say: “Islam has been built on five:  testifying that there is no deity but Allah and that Muḥammad  is  the  Messenger  of  Allah,  the  establishme nt  of  prayer,  giving zakāh, making the pilgrimage to the House, and fast ing Ramadhān.”(Narrated by al-Bukhāri and Muslim) .

    The  pillars  of  Islam  were  enumerated  in  the  previous  ḥadīth  in  comparison  with those of īmān  in order to define and distinguish each.  This ḥad īth presents them in another light.  What is emphasized here is that these five “pillars,” as they have been called, are indeed the basis of Islam without which  the religion cannot stand, just as abuilding cannot stand without strong supports rooted in a foundation.  This does not mean,  however,  that  Islam  is  limited  to  these  five –  far  from  it.    For  obedience  in everything that Allah has ordained is included in Islam and is, in fact, essential for its completion and perfection.  Every Muslim will be judged in the Hereafter according to his efforts to obey every

order and avoid every prohibition. What is meant here is simply that all of the other  obligations  are  what   completes Islam and makes it good (for what use is a building  without walls, a roof, doors and windows, interior furnishings, etc.?), while the main pillars are the minimum that can be called “Islam.”  Hence, the Prophet  did not say that these five pillars are Islam but that Islam is built upon them; i.e., they must be present before Islam can be completed.  And since,  as  noted  previously,  the  deeds  of  Islam  are principally  actions  which  are observable (those of the tongue and the body), a person is considered a Muslim as long as the basic “pillars” are present. The  first  of  them  is shahādah or  testimony  that  there  is  no  deity,  i.e.,  nothing worthy of worship except Allah (subḥānahu wa taʽālā) and that Muḥammad is His messenger, i.e., the spokesman for Allah by His authority.  For this reason Allah, in the Qur’ān, has made obedience to the Prophet  incumbent on all Muslims. Testifying requires that one be truthful and sincere, and it includes two aspects:1)recognition and admission within the self.2)bearing witness of the fact before others, i.e., asserting one’s conviction, which is then proven by his fulfillment of the other four requirements “No deity but Allah” involves the question of divine authority – submission and willing acceptance of the Creator’s right to govern creation.Shahādah  is obviously the first building block of Islam without which there can be no Islam. Scholars’ views differ over the remaining four pillars – whether or not the omission of one of them removes one from the ranks of Muslim.  Continue reading

This question has to be evaluated on its merits and restated according to Islamic understandings.

First and foremost, Muslims do not compare Allah to His creation. Therefore, the question can be answered as such due to the fact that Allah is completely Exalted and far above mortal description; He is not “like” His creation.

Allah tells us in His Book that He is “As-Samad” (The eternally Besought of all). He is also the “Al-Awwal” (First) and the “Al-’Akhir” (Last) He is without beginning or end. This is how He always was and always is, and always will be, so to speak.

Second, Islam is clear on the issue of asking questions about Allah, warning people against being influenced by such question which could plant doubt into someone’s mind or drive him away from the Right Path.

Let us consider the Hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) wherein he mentioned that the Shaytan (Satan) will come to you and trouble you with questions like: “Who created this or that?” To which you would logically respond: “Allah.” Until he would come to the question: “Then who created Allah?” At which point the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) instructed us to say: “I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed devil.” And then leave off this train of thought. (Reported by Muslim)

You might also consider similar questions that the enemies of Islam have used for centuries to weaken one’s faith in the existence of Allah.
