-Alhamdulilah Ramadan is going well thought I feel it is going a bit fast, and insha’Allah all your work is being accepted.
I wanted to write today about people who find excuses not to do what Allah SWT Asked, for example not fasting with none of the reasons that are acceptable for not doing it. If a person doesn’t want to fast then it is his/her choice and Allah SWT will Judge them for it but it is another thing if they make excuses for not fasting and terrible ones at that like saying others are not or people who do bad things fast doesn’t mean they are good people or are better than the one who is not fasting. If one truly believes in Allah SWT then why will he/she not do what Allah said? Fasting is a pillar in Islam, it is one of the foundations yet this person saw fit to say he/she is a believer yet not fast. Allah SWT gave him/her all these blessings yet it was too much to fast?! You can’t take what you like from religion and leave the rest, it is a complete whole, and it is not an act of whim. If the person wants to act on the latter then don’t say you are a believer because that would not be completely true.
It bothers me when people find excuses for their bad behavior, they know it is wrong yet to make themselves feel better they come up with the most absurd reasons why they are doing it. Lol like today a woman said she smoked because it gave her spiritual guidance and made her head clear up; well if it clears your mind it is filling your lungs and body with toxins. Anyhow, if one wants to do something it is their choice but don’t give illogical justifications for it.
