Islamic preacher Dr. Tariq Al-Suwaidan urged Muslims to take advantage of Ramadan to increase the energy and dose of faith because the reward doubles in this month, but without neglecting work and production, citing the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the honorable companions who did not disrupt jihad during the holy month.

Sheikh Al-Suwaidan pointed out that God Almighty has emphasized the meaning of work as worship, as well as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and it was stated in the hadiths that "whoever becomes calla (exhausted) from the work of his hand is forgiven" and "whoever works to spend on his children and family and refrains from haram is forgiven."

The guest of the episode (2023/3/28) of the program "Sharia and Life in Ramadan" explained that worship has the following conditions: that it be pure to God Almighty and be right, and in order for a person's work for a livelihood to be worship, two conditions must be met: that he intends to do his work to be satisfied with what is permissible from the haram, to support his family and live in dignity, and because without intention it is not worship, and to be right, that is, not to violate the law of God Almighty and the orders of the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace.

Al-Suwaidan stresses the need to combine work and worship, especially in the blessed Ramadan, and that God Almighty did not find a lazy nation that worships only in the mosque and leaves life, and therefore the Ramadan is the month of production and work and not laziness, pointing out that there are many battles and historical events related to jihad that occurred during the Ramadan, and the victories of Muslims in it were many.

It shows that the month of Ramadan is a valuable opportunity for the Muslim and is a gift from God Almighty to his servants, and in it began the revelation Ramadan Ramadan of "the month of Ramadan in which the Qur'an was revealed as guidance for people and evidence of guidance and the Furqan."

He highlights that the achievements of Muslims in the past were not only military but political, and that the real victory is the victory of the nation over itself.

Series and competitions that only appear in Ramadan

In the same context, Sheikh Al-Suwaidan is surprised by the actions of some Muslims in Ramadan, where series and competitions appear only in the month of Ramadan due to the lack of understanding of these people of the goals of the holy month, which he specified in: piety (may they be pious), thanksgiving (may they be thankful) and guidance (may they be guided).

The Islamic preacher calls on Muslim youth to entertain themselves, but by watching historical events and series that raise the vigor and advance science, knowledge and example, this will lead to a decrease in what he described as frivolous series and make producers turn to serious and useful works.

As for how man triumphs over his desires in Ramadan, Dr. Al-Suwaidan believes that he must raise himself from scarcity and stinginess to generosity and giving, and set goals for himself, such as changing bad habits, explaining that man changes with the change of his intellectual convictions, interests, skills and relationships.
