Ramadan - Why Do People Still Sin or Face Problems?
  • Question:

    If there are so many blessings in the month of Ramadān, why do people still sin or face problems?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Blessings are certainly expanded during the month of Ramadān. However, God continues to place individuals in trials and adversity. True believers will always engage in doing good, no matter how challenging the situation.

    As far as sin during Ramadān is concerned, jurists explain that sinning in the blessed season is due to one’s own habit, not necessarily inspired by the devils [since they are chained]. This is why we need to try our best to make efforts, to always be righteous (avoiding the whispers of the devil) whether Ramadān or not.

    May Allāh bless one and all.

    And Allah knows best.
