Here’s a short post to remind us on how to keep up with “The Ramadan Vibes”. Many of us had resolutions during the month of Ramadan and envisioned to keep up with the momentum of the blessed Month. Obviously, other days will not be like Ramadan, but there are things we can do to keep up with Ramadan Vibes. Let’s get started.
BISMILLAH-IR-RAHMAN-IR-RAHIM 22 Shaban 1442 Planning is crucial. For about 3 years I have been planning how my Ramadan goes. Essentially write out acts of Ibadah and fit them into your time frame. This makes you conscious of time. Have time for Qur'an, seerah, tafsir, hadiths, lectures, cooking etc. Plan and it will serve you. Proper… Continue reading *#7 Action Plan: Plan your day.
1 Shaban 1442 Why should you take account of your current state? We should aim to be better after every Ramadan in our lives, as it comes to purify us. Cleanse us.

BISMILLAH-IR-RAHMAN-IR-RAHIM 5 months ago I wrote about RAMADAN PREP because the Sahabas used to prepare for this auspicious month 6 month in advance.

Many people are learning about the merits of… Continue reading Ramadan Prep 1442: A series on Action Plan.
What is your fear and insecurity doing to you? We have/had things we feel insecure about. A major one is the fear of failure. One thing with fears is that it keeps us grounded (in a certain way.) How? You may wonder. We are taught to have fear of Allah. This fear must however be balanced with hope!
What defines you? I have come to realize that it is up we as individuals to choose what defines us. As human beings, we have perceptions of ourselves. How we want to be seen and viewed by the outside world. Many of us have or still define ourselves based on our accomplishment, status, appearance what we do. etc. but now, I choose not to! And I want you to do the same. What happens when we get stripped of the so-called labels we attach to our names? How will you see yourself?
Another #TrueLifeStory to remind you never to trust your abilities. Many of us have gone through the academic phase of life. It is important that we are cautious in our strive to excel. To not lose focus of the real thing. Here's a #TrueLifeStory on detachment!
BISMILLAH-IR-RAHMAN-IR-RAHIM The world we are in treats people based on their intellect. The education system grades is centered on intelligence.

But this is a… Continue reading The Most Intelligent of People
