Ramadan

If you missed the info from our Productive Ramadan Seminar, don’t despair!

Here are some of the points from the seminar!

For the full course pack please get in touch.

Make intentions

Ensure that your fasting is only for Allah, we have already seen the numerous benefits of fasting but the primary motivation of fasting should be solely to seek Allahs pleasure. The Prophet had highlighted the conditions for fasting to be accepted by saying

“Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

“Out of faith” in this context refers to ensuring that your worship is solely for Allah.

Have the eagerness to get your fasts and worship accepted

Sometimes it is difficult to hope and wish for something without realising its value. We already went through the value of Ramadan and the associated rewards and so most of you should feel eagerness in your hearts for our efforts to be rewarded/accepted. If you are still unsure think about what makes you eager…think back to last year Ramadan…make an assessment of how your heart measured up in terms of possessing that eagerness

The spiritual motivation within us is an innate aspect of our being and its fulfilment is our ultimate objective in life. Those who fail to achieve this objective will experience feelings of emptiness, despair, anxiety and dread. This motive compels us to reflect upon God and His creation, our purpose and our final destination.

So seek that motivation. Sometimes you can cultivate that eagerness in your heart by reminding yourself about the rewards, virtues, and benefits of Ramadan.

 Engage intently in worship during Ramadan

Ensure that all our acts of Ibadah during Ramadan are purposeful, absorbing, given due time, and engage our hearts to the fullest. It would indeed be a big loss if we merely earned hunger, thirst, and sleeplessness from our actions at the end of the month!
The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) once said,  “Some who fast obtain nothing from it but hunger and thirst.”
