This translation is based on a lecture which was delivered by AshShaykh AbdulMuhsin ibn HamadalAbbaad on Shawwaal 16, 1390 A.H. at the Taybah Secondary School. It was also published in the Journalof the Islaamic University of Madeenah, Issue #10. In it, the Shaykh discusses a few points about fasting andthe month of Ramadaan as well as its relation to the months that follow. He then highlights certain practicallessons drawn from the attitude displayed by Muslims during Ramadaan and how the same attitude can betransferred to life and worship in other months. Finally, the Shaykh concludes with a reminder to theresidents of alMadeenah, where the lecture was delivered.

This clarifies that these tested individuals include ones who excel in their deeds and will be rewardeddue to what is entailed by Allaah’s name alGhafoor (the OftForgiving). Similarly included arethose who act wrongly and will deserve punishment due to what is entailed by His name alAzeez(the Almighty). That is like His saying

 which means,
Declare to My servants, that I am truly the OftForgiving, the MostMerciful. And that My Torment is indeed the most painful torment.
 
[Soorah alHijr (15):49,50]
 
A Season of the Hereafter
 Just as Allaah has granted virtue to some of mankind over others, as well as certain places over others,he has also favoured certain times over others. Part of that is the virtue of the blessed month of Ramadaan and its distinction over the remaining months, along with it being chosen as the timewhen fasting is obligated.

 which means,
And your Lord creates whatsoever He wills and chooses.
 
[Soorah alQasas (28):68]
 As such, Allaah has granted virtue to this month and designated it as one of the seasons of thehereafter. During it, the servants of Allaah compete with one another and race to achieve successand nearness to Him. They seek to come closer to their Lord by fasting in the daytime, standing topray at night, and reciting His Majestic Book which falsehood cannot approach from before it nor behind, since it is revealed from One who is AllWise and Worthy of all Praise. They seek nearnessto Allaah by these and other acts of obedience, while cautiously remaining aware of disobedient actsand avoiding them. All this is done hoping for a profitable trade that will never perish, wherebyAllaah would pay them their wages in full, and give them an increase out of His Bounty. Indeed,He is OftForgiving, Most Appreciative of good deeds and ready to reward them.
