By Basharat Ali

The New You

By Dr Omar Suleiman
If you’ve fasted during Ramaḍān with a firm intention that after Ramaḍān you will not slip back into your bad old habits, then Allāh will accept you in His Garden, Al Jannah, without any reckoning beforehand.  But if you return to your sinful behaviour, then Allāh will not accept your fasting, and you’ll be the loser…
