Through out this month you’re going to face some serious challenges. From the biggest of them is that you’re going to be LAZY! It’s going to get so bad that it will ruin the feeling of Ramadan. You won’t want to read Quran. You won’t want to go to Taraweeh. You’ll just want to lay in bed or be entertained. What can you do to fight this off?
1- Remember that you may not live to see another Ramadan.
2- Make the following supplication regularly through out the day.
للّهُـمَّ إِنِّي أَعْوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الهَـمِّ وَ الْحُـزْنِ، والعًجْـزِ والكَسَلِ والبُخْـلِوالجُـبْنِ، وضَلْـعِ الـدَّيْنِ وغَلَبَـةِ الرِّجال
Allahumma inni ‘audhubika min al-hammi wal huzani,wal ‘ajzi wal kasali, wal bukhli wal jubni, wa dala’ad-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijâl. Read the rest of this entry
Narrated Ibn Umar [R.A] , “Allah’s Messenger[S.A.W] said, “Verily, Allah and His Angels send Salaat upon those who eat the Suhoor (the pre-dawn meal of fasting).”
[Saheeh at-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (1/519)]
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree [R.A] said that Allah’s Messenger[S.A.W] said, “The Suhoor is a meal of blessings, so do not leave it, even if one of you just takes a (gulp) of water, since Allah sends Mercy, and His Angels seek forgiveness for those who take the Suhoor.”
[Reported by Ahmad (3/12 and 44) and Ibn Abee Shaibah (3/8) and their isnads support each other]
This Hadeeth shows the Prophet’s keenness for his Ummah to receive the Mercy of Allah and His forgiveness, which is why he encouraged us to drink even a sip of water for Suhoor.
Strengthen your faith during this month by confirming your belief in the unity of God.
Have the intention of pleasing God with all your acts of worship.
Keep away from the things that nullify your faith.
Follow the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad.
Feed the poor and the needy. Feel the gift of giving in Ramadan.
Before going out for `Eid prayer, make sure to pay Zakat al-Fitr.
Perform the daily prayers at their fixed times and in congregation as much as you can. Attend the Tarawih prayers constantly and perform extra prayers. Rediscover the power of prayer in Ramadan and concentrate much while praying. Leave this worldly life behind your back once you raise your hands and say Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest).
