SURAH AL-QADR (97)----- Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months). Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah's Permission with all Decrees, Peace!
Ramadan Reinspired Day 15: The next time you are going to pray, pay some attention to the quality of your salah and spend a considerate amount of time in perfecting your actions. Don’t be like Mr. Speedy Gonzales who prays as if he’s on the run from the police and he must get these two nawafil in before getting caught. Praying 2 rakahs with complete attention and perfect actions is better than praying 4 super quick ones.
Ramadan Reinspired Day 14: We all have our own worries and problems that stress us out. But all difficulties have an end, and soon your problems will vanish too. If only we remembered and sought help from the one who created a solution for every problem, they won’t last very long. Ramadan is the best time to make a change and turn and focus your attention towards Allah in Salah. If you feel that your problems are a locked door, then Allah has the key. Seek it through Sabr & Salah.
Ramadan Reinspired Day 13: Reach out to those near you, and help those in need. Is there a family in your neighborhood that you haven’t seen in a while? A student in a strange new city? A new Muslim who is fasting for the first time? An elderly couple who can’t get to the mosque or to the grocery store? Even the smallest gesture of kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
Ramadan Reinspired Day 12: We should be considerate of others, and try not to become a source of distraction during salah. Remember the advice of the Prophet (SWS): “Whoever eats onions or garlic or leeks, let him not come near our mosque, for the angels are offended by the same things that offend the sons of Adam.” (Muslim)
Ramadan Reinspired Day 11: This Ramadan let’s aim at replacing our negative addictions with new positive ones and work our way to gradually unwind/withdraw from the negative addictions until they disappear from our lives, In Sha Allah. Since addiction is such a powerful force that sometimes is hard to resist, can we harness this propensity to be addicted & get ourselves addicted to positive things? Can we get addicted to Salah for example? Or to the Quran? Or to giving Charity?
Ramadan Reinspired Day 9: In this blessed month, Muslims are encouraged to beautify & develop their characters, especially their manners when dealing with people. Conveying gratitude by saying ‘thanks’ when someone has done us a favour is a part of Good manners. However is there something better than just thanks? The Prophet (SWS) said: “Whoever has a favour done for him and says to the one who did it, ‘Jazak Allaahu khayran,’ has done enough to thank him.” (Tirmidhi)
Ramadan Reinspired Day 8: To most of us, Ramadan has rather become a month of feasting than fasting. We make sure that our bellies are filled to the maximum at Suhoor and at Iftar but we fail to realize that what really needs to be fed above the line this month, is our soul. Since Shaitan is locked up in Ramadan, this is the perfect time to explore our inner capability to get closer than ever to our Creator.
Ramadan Reinspired Day 7: We dress up in our best attire at work to impress our boss & coworkers. We make sure our swag is on point when we are at the mall chilling with our friends. But when it comes Allah, the Boss of bosses & the Closest of all friends, unfortunately our hygiene and appearance take a back seat. Let’s make sure that from the next salah on wards, we look presentable and are perfumed in a manner that conforms to the etiquette of the Masjid.
Ramadan Reinspired Day 6: Neighbors occupy a very high status in Islam. So much so that a person cannot be called a true Muslim if his neighbors go to bed hungry. The blessed month is an excellent opportunity to get know our neighbors both Muslim and not yet Muslim. Invite them for an Iftar and make use of this rare opportunity to let them experience the spirit of Ramadan
Ramadan Reinspired Day 2: The time during the month of Ramadan is blessed and precious. It is a golden opportunity to seek closeness to Allah. Before we know it, this month of mercy and forgiveness will be over. We should try and spend every moment possible in the worship of Allah so that we can make the most of this blessing. Avoid getting into unwanted conversations instead use the time to recite a lot of Quran and avoid oversleeping so that you get enough time to pray the nafil prayers.
