Negligence after Ramadan

Answered as per Maliki Fiqh by BinBayyah.net

Our venerable sheikh, one question puzzles me. Fasting in Ramadan is not only to abstain from bodily desires of sex and food. It is a sort of training for the soul to become pure, to respect others, and to stay away from grave sins in general. But with the advance of time we have started to give Ramadan more propaganda via satellite channels during the month…
My question is why do I see after the elapse of Ramadan the spread of corruption, injustice, lying, disputes, and prohibited practices? What is the reason? Has fasting become and ordinary practice for the majority?

In fact, it is a responsibility that we all share to call to the way of Almighty Allah and to ask people to adhere to the word of piety and to be after Ramadan as they were during Ramadan. Evil souls among jinn and human beings do their utmost in this point. Thus, everybody should shoulder the responsibility and make some effort to guide people to the straight path; each one according to his level of ability. The person in authority should use his authority to do this. Scholars and callers to the way of Allah should provide clarification and proof and call people to the true path. The lay person should do as far as he can and at least deny evil practices by his heart.
