Just because Ramadhan is over, doesn’t mean our good actions should stop with it.

Here are a few ways we can continue doing good deeds beyond Ramadhan.

1. Continue Fasting in Shawwal

Fasting 6 days after Eid al-Fitr increases the blessings of Ramadan fasting and makes up for any unintentional deficiency left during Ramadan fasting.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Whoever fasts during the month of Ramadan and then follows it with six days of Shawwal will be (rewarded) as if he had fasted the entire year.”

2. Continue Learning and Spreading Knowledge

Our learning should never stop. We should carry on learning about Islam through educated and reliable sources.

3. Continue To Make Time for The Qur’an

Learning the Qur’an is a very important act in Islam which brings invaluable rewards.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Whoever recites a letter from Allah’s Book, then he receives the reward from it, and the reward of ten the like of it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is a letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.”

With Ramadhan over, we shouldn’t stop reciting and reflecting on the Qur’an. Make time for the Qur’an as often as you can.

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Read the Qur’an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.”

4. Continue To Make Time for Your Friends and Family

Spending time with family is considered an act of worship.

You could read together, pray together, eat together or play together.

The best Muslim is he who is good to his family.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“The best of you is the one who is best to his own family, and I am the best of you towards my family.”

5. Continue To Donate Towards Good Causes

Allah will shade and shelter those who give charity and care for the poor.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.”

By sacrificing our wealth to those who are most needy, we are protecting ourselves from tragedy and misfortune.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.”

Source: At-Tirmidhi

You can donate to different projects through Inspire FM’s charity partners Families Relief and Human Appeal.

Let’s continue good deeds beyond Ramadhan.
