Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)
What intentions should we make for after Ramadan?
It is good to make these intentions before Ramadan is over so that the reward for our intentions is multiplied.
We intend to be among those whose entire year is Ramadan
We intend that our connection to Allah is expressed in our actions throughout the day and the night
We intend to serve the Ummah in the best way by focusing on the Three Objectives (knowledge, devotion and service)
We intend to seek the pleasure of Allah and to make His Messenger ﷺ happy in all that we do
We intend to attain an increase in presence of heart with Allah at all times but especially during the prayer, recitation of the Quran and remembrance
We intend to establish gatherings with our brothers and sisters who we love for Allah’s sake
We intend to fast the Six Days of Shawwal and other blessed days such as Tāsūā’ and Ashura (9th and 10th Muharram) and the Day of Arafah and at least three days in every month
