The ruling on whoever only fasts and prays during Ramadhan.

by Albaseerah

Question:If a person is active in fasting and praying only during Ramadhan, but he leaves off the prayer as Ramadhan ends, does he have a fast?

Answer:

The prayer is a pillar from the pillars of Islam, and it is the most emphasized pillar after the two Testimonies of Faith. It is from the mandatory duties upon the individuals, and whoever abandons it while rejecting its obligation or due to laxity or laziness, then he has disbelieved.

In reference to those who fast Ramadhan and they only pray during Ramadhan, then this is an attempt to deceive Allah. What wicked people these are who do not know Allah except during Ramadhan.

Thus, their fast is not acceptable while they are abandoning the prayer outside of Ramadhan.

I think I read this somewhere. I don't see the point of fasting and praying during Ramadan when one intends to abandon those acts of worship outside of the holy month. Sooo much wrong with our Ummah these days. :(

KimDonesia-Thanks for dropping by sis, I appreciate your comment. There is alot of ignorance existing in our ummah, and another thing you often see, is muslim women putting on the hijab in Ramadan but removing it as soon as it finishes, I wonder what that's all about?!
May Allaah guide us all, and keep us firm upon siraatul mustaqeem, ameen!
