The month of Ramadan was a chance to taste the sweetness of worship and drawing nearer to Allah. It also broke the psychological barrier between us and many acts of worship that seem difficult in regular days.
Ramadan proved that fasting is not that difficult thing. Standing in prayers for long periods at night is not as difficult as we imagine; many of us did it for 30 nights.
Despite our busy schedules, we managed to afford enough time to recite the whole Qur’an during the blessed month once or even more.
So, Ramadan proves for us that we have great potentials; that we are able to do much of worship and continue elevating and purifying our souls after Ramadan.
True, we might miss the great and unique reward of Ramadan. But Allah’s generosity is limitless. His special offers are not restricted to Ramadan. We are provided so many chances to increase our account of good deeds in the rest of the year. Unfortunately, we are often too careless to seize these opportunities.
Below is a collection of hadiths that show the great reward promised by Allah for small good deeds.

1. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “A charity is due for every joint in each person on everyday the sun comes up: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it, is a charity; a good word is a charity; and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
2. Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
“There is no person who does not have the obligation of (doing) charity every day that the sun rises.”
Whereupon he was asked, “O Messenger of Allah, from where would we get something to give in charity (so often)?”
So, he (peace and blessings be upon him) replied,
“Indeed the gates to goodness are many:
glorifying God, praising Him, magnifying Him, saying ‘There is no god but Allah,’ enjoining the good and forbidding the wrong, removing (any source of) harm from the road, making the deaf hear (and understand), guiding the blind, showing the seeker his need, striving as far as your two legs could carry you and with deep concern to give succor to him who asks, carrying with the strength of your arms (the burdens of) the weak.
All these are (acts of) charity.”
And he added, “And your smiling in the face of your brother is charity, your removing of stones, thorns, and bones from people’s paths is charity, and your guiding a man gone astray in the world is charity for you.”Pages: 1 2 3
