Somebody is leaving....

In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Devils Are Chained in Ramadan: Why Do People Sin?
It is said that Satan is locked up during the month of Ramadan.
If this is the case, then why do we see sins committed in this month?
To whom should such crimes be ascribed?

It is well known that Satan has nothing to do with those who are committed to the true meaning of fasting. Such people are saved from the devil’s influence during the blessed month of Ramadan. Although devils are chained during Ramadan, it is no wonder to see people committing sins in broad daylight because not all sins are committed as a result of Satanic whispers, but one’s evil soul or 'nafsu' may drive one to sin and even commit crimes.
Abu Hurairah, (may Allah be pleased with him) quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: “When the month of Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of the Hellfire are closed, and the devils are chained.” (Reported by al-Bukhari).

It is clear from the aforementioned Hadith that putting devils in chains during the month of Ramadan does not mean that they cannot influence people who are not abiding by the laws of Allah. The statement only means that as far as the believers who are observing the rules of Allah are concerned, Satan’s control over them is diminished.

I am not a Scholar...,
...but, Yes, we all know that during the holy month of Ramadhan, the Devils are being chained. And Yes... human still continues to do sin because of desire and habit.

... my two cents worth...

Selamat Berpuasa to all my Muslim bloggers..
