Temptation during the summer


Alhamdulillah, now i'm in the fourth semester in my college. Which means that I have 2 and half years more to go. Anyway, we cannot deny that we are living in one of the kuffar country, which means that most of the people we can see, are kuffar. The temptation during these days will be more harmful then the other season. Why? Because we know that during the summer there are more evil that we can see everywhere. That is the reason for making this article.

First and most important reason, is about the weather. It is one of human habit to curse the time. It is Haraam to curse time. Al-Bukhari and Muslim related on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Allah (Exalted be He) says: 'The son of Adam hurts Me by cursing time, as I am Time. I turn around the night and day.' In another narration, Do not curse time, as Allah is Time.[1]

The Second one is about 'lowering your gaze'. Somehow, in the other days, we could manage to lower our gaze during the day. But for some reason, in summer, we have to be more struggle about it. Because many women you meet in subway, or bus, or campus, or in the road will wear nothing. When I said "nothing" that doesn't mean that they are totally naked. But it means that they wear something but you could see their body shapes. Allah told us in the qur'an "Tell the believing men to lower their gaze, and protect their private parts. That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze, and protect their private parts"[2] and so on. Of course this is one of our most difficult temptation.

The third one is about the time of the prayer. For the Fajr time, it will be less than 4 am in the morning, so that we have to wake up earlier than that time. Of course it will be difficult for some of us, because some of us has problem with their sleep time that they cannot sleep before 1-2 am because of insomnia. Not only that, but also for maghrib time which will be more than 7 pm, because if we are fasting, we will fasting longer than usual, especially in Ramadan that will be in summer in this year.

But, Alhamdulillah, one of the ease that Allah give to us, because the Ramadan will be held in summer this year. Which we know that Sayathiin(devil) will be locked inside the hell during that time, and the gate to jannah will open during that day. Because of that, we can concentrate to worship Allah Ta'ala during those days, the temptation will be reduced, so struggling against everything what I mention above will be easier, except for those munafiqun (The Hypocrates) and fajir(evil-doer) .

Wa billahi taufiq
