How are you doing after Ramadan

Today, I went through my previous 40 Ramadans and How was my state after each one of them:

  • 40 Ramadans
  • Messed up Ramadan
  • E3tekaf — The make up for spiritual
  • Various Ramadans in between those extremes

Ghaflah, Heedlessness, and negligence

يَعۡلَمُونَ ظَٰهِرٗا مِّنَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةِ هُمۡ غَٰفِلُونَ

(30:7) People simply know the outward aspect of the worldly life but are utterly heedless4 of the Hereafter.

The people who are identified as being negligent or heedless (ghafil) in the Quran have a limited understanding and appreciation of the true essence of life. These individuals are preoccupied with only the superficial aspects of the world and do not pay attention to the significance of the hereafter (30:7).

  1. Aware — awakening

Waking up. For Fajr

2. Reflect — go back in time or reflect on present and what is the future

3. Acceptance- Accept that I have been heedless

  1. Intention to change

First: Awakening/Aware

  • 1st awakening, the environment change and good company were the awakening
  • 2nd — (Aware), Amr Khalid
  • 3rd — 2003 (Blessing), was getting an impossible blessing and I felt humble about

Became heedless again by taking blessings for granted and attached them to myself

in Quran “” “I got it because of my knowledge”

  • 4th — 2022 — (Calamities),
