It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "When Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are put in chains."
So that means that Shaytan aka Satan is locked up and can't influence you in any way to make you do anything wrong. And that means that anything wrong you do is your own doing.

People do crazy things.

I liked it better when I could blame Satan for everything. H's a better scapegoat when people do unexplainable things. I like staying in my little bubble where no one is completely evil; that there's good in everyone.

That bubble has burst.

And life goes on.

I was thinking..I wonder if there's a study about the crime rate or badness level in Ramadan. I wonder if it goes down. But it's hard to measure what's "wrong". it could be a lie, drinking, sex, stealing, etc. Doesnt have to be a major crime. I wonder if the total goes down in Ramadan as comapred to the rest of the year..hmm
