The Shield of Taqwa after Ramadaan


Now, after experiencing a beautiful month of Ramadaan, we should continue striving in making the Ibaadah of Allah Ta’ala and refraining from all sins. We require Istiqaamat (steadfastness). The Taqwa we had acquired in Ramadaan has to be preserved.

The word Taqwa is derived from the word “Wiqaayah”, which means a ‘shield… We arm and protect ourselves with this ‘Shield of Taqwa’ against the onslaughts of Nafs and shaytaan … They will always prompt us.

All we need to do, is to continue to pull out this “Shield of Taqwa” and defend ourselves against evil temptations and sins.
