2018 Ramadan Reflections Series with Lamppost Education Initiative

A short reflection on forgetfulness from Surah Ta Ha (Qur’an 20: 115)

وَلَقَد عَهِدنا إِلىٰ آدَمَ مِن قَبلُ فَنَسِيَ وَلَم نَجِد لَهُ عَزمًا

“We made a contract with Adam before, but he forgot. We did not find that he had a firm resolve.”

The Virtues of Shawwal

For those who seek an immense reward, let us be reminded of the Six Days of Shawwāl.

من صام رمضان ثم أتبعه بست من شوال كان كصيام الدهر

“The one who fasts Ramadan and then follows that with six days in Shawwāl, it’s as if one fasts in perpitude.”Abu Ayyub, recorded in Sahih Muslim, 9/#1254
