The worst thing in the world you could do to your Ramadan is completely render it void because of a dispute you have with someone. It contradicts the entire essence of fasting and seeking the pardon of your Lord because it’s not befitting to request forgiveness if you’re unable to forgive others.
Ramadan is the best opportunity to write that email or text message to that lost family member or friend and say “it’s not worth it to lose Allah’s forgiveness over this” and “I’M SORRY.”
Even if you’ve been avoiding someone and there is an implicit, unofficial, or unspoken boycott, make sure you end that today so that you don’t jeopardize your fasting.
- Don’t do it for that person, do it for the sake of Allah.
Oh Allah clear our hearts from enmity, give us the ability to forgive, and pardon us for we have wronged ourselves. Ameen.
