As salamu aleikum, Beautiful 🙂 Eid Mubarak! Taqabal Allahu minna wa minkum <3
Ramadhan is gone and now at the top of everyone’s mind is how to keep the Ramadhan spirits and taqwa achieved for at least couple of months. Ideally until next Ramadhan, in shaa Allah.
First of all, I would like to congratulate you for finishing the whole month of fasting, whether you achieved your Qur’an reading goals or had ‘enough’ time to devout it to religious contemplation, or not.
The concept of time is very tricky. What does it mean ‘enough’ and how much do you need to to feel that you have done enough?
I hope you feel that Ramadhan was not wasted and are enjoying Eid.
Second, how to make sure all you have done is not going to waste immediately after Ramadhan is finished?
Assess what is important to you. You have put your trust in Allah for the whole month, that you will be able to go on without food and drink for long hours.
- Do you want to carry on reading few pages of Qur’an everyday?
- Do you want to keep your tongue moist with remembrance of the Most Merciful?
- Do you want to keep feeling close to Allah?
Know what do you want.
Here is my to-do list:
After all that happened in London and the fire I have witnessed in the building next to mine where my friend lives in the middle of the night (not the Grenfell, though) I just want to put everything in Allah hands and hand over all the worry to Him. To be able to go out without fear that there is an idiot lurking around the corner, who is just looking to do or say something horrible to me.
That’s my after Ramadhan goal.
Deffo nothing fancy. I will keep enjoying reading Qur’an, enoying family and keep working to bring you blog posts and some more, in shaa Allah.
But peace of mind is my #1 goal.
Know what YOU want and don’t feel bad about your goals. You do you.
Enjoy Eid celebrations!
Ma salama xx
