Allah knows best, seriously! But we know Allah is the most merciful, the most forgiving! And if a Muslim turned to him during his last days, really being sincere about forgiveness, Allah is the ever forgiving!
We do not know the intentions of anyone or his/her destiny...
It's their business what they do, but at least you can be happy they (those who suddenly become practicing) are trying to maintain a good picture while it's Ramadan, the least,
and every non-Muslim who knows about this holy month, watches us and by that sees how believing Muslims are... Yeah, it's a minor good side of some people's sudden behaviour, but at least it exists, and by the will of Allah, it could lead that many more are getting practicing even after Ramadan.
Shouldn't we exactly on Ramadan, pray to Allah that He gives us the strength to improve ourselves, our characters and wish the same to other Muslims, give dawah... instead of judging them all ?
Yeah, there are those who are shocking cases, drink alcohol and do haram things etc before and after Ramadan but on Ramadan act like the best... Yeah, it is hypocrisy, but maybe their intentions were good, maybe they said 'I'll change after this Ramadan' (but later didn't fully manage?) ? That's what I wanted to point out... It depends a lot on the intentions.
... A discussion about how people changed to the better after Ramadan, would be much better and much more motivating for others to see.
Just my humble opinion.
