⏲ Organize Yourself 📝
The key to having a successful Ramadan is to organize, plan and then execute.
Examples for your goals could be:
📗Reading Quran with meaning and writing my reflections each day
📔Learning 99 names of Allah SWTand using it in my dua.
🔐Doing one secret deed between me and AllahSWT.
⛰ Mountain of Rewards🎁
Ramadan is a month filled with blessings and mercy. Any good deed you do gets multiplied many times over, so don’t miss out on collecting a mountain of good deeds.
👨👩👦👦 Involve others
Encourage others to do a good deed rather than doing it all by yourself. This is especially helpful if you’re feeling down and out. Your rewards get multiplied manifold.
💰 Give and give some more👌🏻
Want to see the barakah and blessings in your life increase manifold? Give charity. Want to see your duas answered? Give charity.
charity extinguishes sins like water puts off fire [At-tirmidhi].
👅 Tame That Tongue.
AllahSWT doesn’t like a fasting body which doesn’t desist from foul words or backbiting or slander.
💓 Time 4 a New Friend.📗
Yes, this month is perfect for you to make a new friend, a companion who is not only going to be your source of strength and support, but can heal your scars, mend your heart, boost your eemaan and give you joy and happiness like no other. It’s time to build a lifelong relationship with Quran this Ramadan.
👥 Make Quran Buddies📗
Discuss one page or even half a page of Quran with your friends/family/siblings/spouse/children every day in Ramadan.
⏲Fix a time for this activity.
🗣Talk about your reflections.You can also include tafseer.
👨👩👧👦Involve your family members.there is nothing more beautiful than learning Allah’s deen together.
🔆 What if the Spark Dies?🔅
This usually happens after a week or so. Soon, you realize that your Ramadan days are no different from the rest of the year.
Yes! Here’s what you need to do.
💭 Intentions matter: Seek to please AllahSWT alone and not to expect praise from family or friends. Seek your reward from AllahSWT ONLY.
💪🏻 Beg For Strength.
An overdose of dua never hurts, so repent, cry and beg from the depths of your heart to AllahSWT.
👣 Baby Steps.
Take baby steps rather than not taking any step at all. Start with 10 minutes of extra worship and build it up from there. Start with one page of Quran and build it up from there. Its quality and sincerity over quantity and show off!
“Walk with the end goal of paradise in mind and not just the end goal of Ramadan in mind”.
