Did we achieve anything?

Subhanallah, Ramadhan is nearly over. I sincerely pray that we have done justice to ourselves in the name of Allah in this Holy Month.

Let's just recap what the objective of fasting in Ramadhan is.

Al Baqarah 2: 183
O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting)[] is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn</blockquote>

May Allah make us achieve this.

I may not have access to the blog after this, so I am wishing all of you,

Taqaballahhu minna wa minkum

May Allah accept our deeds in this month and that it become our intercession in akhirah.

And then also we are reminded of the story of Habil and Qabil. When Qabil was angry that his shabby offerings were not accepted. Allah accepted Habil's offerings, his brother of whom Qabil was already jealous at.

And Habil said to Qabil, "Verily, Allâh accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqûn."

Al Maidah 5: 27
And (O Muhammad SAW) recite to them (the Jews) the story of the two sons of Adam (Hâbil and Qâbil — Abel and Cain)] in truth; when each offered a sacrifice (to Allâh), it was accepted from the one but not from the other. The latter said to the former: "I will surely kill you.[]" The former said: "Verily, Allâh accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqûn

And thus I ask Allah that we have taqwa in our heart and thus Allah accepts our deeds that we perform only to please Him.
