From Hajj Back To Temptations

The muslims usually go through a period of fasting and prayer before the celebration of the Hajj. The fasting and prayer includes avoiding and overcoming every temptation that might come our way.

Does this mean that after the celebration of the Hajj, every Muslim can go back to their normal lives and also back to falling into temptations?

  • To me i think it a personal choice for the muslims.

  • In the Christian religion,we have a season called "THE LENT" season.

    The same rules still apply during this peroid,we are to remain holy.

    What you choose to do after this season solely depends on the individual, if you choose to go back to ur little iniquities,so be it, but know that the maker is watching🙏

  • Fasting gives us the ability to leave above temptations, so when we  are done with fasting, we receive direction on how to live our lives, so temptation can no longer overpower us.

  • Well, it doesn't necessarily mean that they should go back to their normal life 

    Some Muslims are good people anyway

  • In Islam, there are 12 Lunar monthssso, leaving off all forms of illicit acts is not only applicable to one month of fasting rather it's meant for all other months. Those lessons and activities being done during fasting month are to be used in the remaining11 months too.

  • No. Because the Hajj period is observed to help strengthen them in their believe of Allah. And be better Muslims.

  • To me most muslims after the fasting goes back to their sinful live. Take for example b4 fasting the clubs and beer parlour are always crowded. Then during  the fasting everything goes idle and then again after the fasting it back to normal.

  • They will go back to their former life if not careful but most of them believe Hajj will still come and they going to still be forgiven if attended

  • That is true but some do not return to temptation while some still return to there sin.

  • This could be true to an extent, but, on my own view and with different situations that i have witnessed, none has failed interviews when they know it's important, everything in Nigeria now is done strictly by connection, EXCEPT the Grace of God, one can't really secure a job.

  • No. They should continue with there faithful act after the fast.

  • The utmost aim of every religion is to enjoy happiness with the Supernatural Being ir Beings they believe in. For Moslems after this holy season i do not think it is to go back falling into temptation but to strive harder to do the will of Allah however as humans we are weak so sometimes we are bound to fall into temptation but what is important is that we rise again.

  • As for me is not to go back falling on tamtatio, but the thrut is ech and everyone has his own spirit, because someone may think I just come out of fasting then he or she can comit, probably think, he will asks off forgiveness

  • The purpose of fast is to purify our souls and put us back on the right path that we ought to be. But after Eid everyone goes back to their normal life which might include deviating from the right track.

  • Temptation is not something that is easily to be overcome Its only God that can help human being out... Temptation didn't know how strong you are has a Christian he will surely come ,, even how our Lord jesus Christ was holy he was still tempted by devil

  • During hajj Muslims worshipping god, and others activities of hajj every Muslims happy during hajj but when everything finished no one could happy for coming back home. Because of the lots of enjoyment during pilgrimage.

  • The issue of righteousness and sin is a struggle between evil and good, thus it is a daily struggle towards perfection and not necessarily mean that once you repent of your sin, temptation will go away forever

  • I'm a Christian but I'll give an instance. There are times when we go for a retreat and fasting to spend some time away from people and spend more time with God but what is most important is what you get out from that time of retreat. One important thing people miss out on such times is that they fail to ask God for grace and strength to resist temptation even after they live the place of retreat because you can't be there forever, we'll always come back home to temptations and what matters most is your ability to resist temptations and remain faithful even after the retreat because our faithfulness at all times is what matters to God

  • I believe that after repentance we are not supposed to go back to our sinful ways. So what is the point in repenting at first if you will still go back to that after some time that's very wrong

  • After the celebration everybody can go back to his normal lives, and about the temptation Fasting we observed grow our faith with our creator and taking us closer to him.

  • Though the country we live in is my one which actually made temptation easily fell into,  however,  we as Muslims should try and endeavor so hard to do away with the major sins and always ask for forgiveness from Allah against the minor sins I. e those we cannot control ourselves

  • No matter where they may find themselves after the period of Hajj, they should try to keep every other day holy and try hard to live a life of righteousness, Christian have their's they call it The Period Of Lent..IT'S NOT EASY but in my opinion they can go back to their normal life but always living it in a righteous way.

  • in my point of view on a discussion from hajj to temptation in Islamic affairs is not good because hajj comes to make us closer to God and when someone is close to God he/she must be careful about temptation in life

  • I don't think this is the norm even If it is what is going on. 

    What's the essence of fasting when after then you go back to your vomit. 

    I think during the fasting period we should have subjected our innerman to discipline So that after fasting we would have been used to not doing wrong things again.

  • I think the main point is the fasting. It helps one spiritually. Not every muslim goes for hajj, but then most of those who go for hajj try to be morally upright. Temptation does not play a significant role after that.

  • It shouldn't be so

    Once the fasting is over

    All our bad acts should also be over

    Its not easy but one should try not to go back to the bad act

  • Temptation s can't easily be overcomesd though but going back to temptation after fasting and praying makes no sense,why then did you pray and fast for guidance in the first place if you can't help yourself overcome temptation

  • One of the sign of acceptance of our fasting is that we don't break our promise to GOD by going back to temptation and causing harm on earth. May Alloh accept the Hajj of our brothers and sisters and also accept our sacrifice as acts of total submission to HIM alone

  • Everyone must be careful not to fall into trap of satan. fast and hajj are meant for Muslims to revive their spirit and covenant with Alloh that they won't go back sinning anymore

  • D reason for d fasting Nd prayer is to cleanse yourself of your sins Nd so is hajj.Hajj is supposed to get you closer to Allah so after hajj you should be careful of things you for so as not to fall into temptations

  • In my own view, temptation is to rest how solid and steadfast we are in the religion, society isn't helping, but only GOD has the right to judge human

  • This shouldn't be an issue of choice, rather it should be that of determination resulting from obedience to divine orders. It's complicated though but on our (humans) side, God rewards our utmost and plain efforts towards overcoming temptations.

    - Bolarinwa Bodunde - 2019-08-25 22:57:01 Quote

  • the issue of sin is quite an interesting one because it has to do with nature rather than just an action, it will take changing the nature of a person to truly change that person from doing it else what we will have is just abstainance and not true change

  • After the period, I think Muslims are expected to follow the path of the period. They are not suppose to go back to their temptation days.

    The fasting period is suppose to bring them to days of good deeds and they are suppose to keep doing good.

  • This is a personal Choice , some people are not true(practicing) Muslims before they go for Hajj, so they might still get into temptations . It's only Allah that knows the best and knows who fears him .

  • Hhmmm, it shouldn't be so. I like the period of fasting but in Christianity and in Islam. The way people are living a holy life is commendable, the free hand of giving is the way humans are suppose to be living.

  • I learnt that if you go to hajj, there is a special blessing for you. Then my question is, what about those that can’t afford the money for hajj? Those That means they are not entitled to this blessing?

    - ThankGod Emmanuel - 2019-08-28 19:50:30 Quote

  • I am not in support of it, the reason is because if you go to hajj and you are back, you are already an Alhaji or Alhaja, xo any bad things should not be seen with you again

  • Whenever the holy month of Ramadan approaches, Muslims all over the world are compelled to shun every sinful acts and embrace total abstinence from food and drinking from morning till dusk. However, whenever Ramadan comes to an end, Muslims are advised to abstain from falling back to shameful and sinful acts that preceded the month of Ramadan.

  • No, even if you haven't go it , islam say leave the bad things and follow the good deed, so when you went for Hajji to pray to Allah for forgiveness and pray toward your work , it wrong to go back to bad deed even people will look at you as good person,
