Day 30: Ramadan reflections: avoiding sins and maintaining good deeds.
ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib said, “Be more concerned with Allāh’s acceptance of a good deed than with the doing of the good deed itself. Have you not heard Allāh saying: “Allāh only accepts from the people of taqwā.” (Ibn Abī al-Dunyā, Al-Ikhlās).

ʾAbd Allāh Ibn ʾUmar reported: The Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ), said, “Every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock… No doubt, every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock.”(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 7138; Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1829).

Day 5: Remembering Allah (SWT)
