Ramaḍān: a Start and a Means

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Allāh the All-High says in explaining the wisdom behind fasting:

{ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَتَّقُونَ }

…in order for you to attain taqwá [due fear of your Lord]. (Al-Baqarah: 183)

So the intelligent person is one who makes his month [of Ramaḍān] a means of attaining taqwá, which is doing acts of obedience [to Allāh] and keeping away from acts of disobedience [to Him]—the month is an opportunity improve the soul and fix its defects.

Whoever asks Allāh for help [with that] and establishes his whole month upon goodness and righteousness will have gotten used to [remaining upon] that after Ramaḍān. He will have made Ramaḍān the start of his becoming good and the means of his remaining righteous.
