The last stretch…

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

I recently came across an amazing article which looked at beating the “mid-Ramadan slump”.

It was something that I could empathise with as I had recently felt such a drop in my enthusiasm levels.

I therefore felt inspired to give you some tips that helped me out.

Tip number 1:

Be sincere in your intentions

Why do you want to pray your salaat on time?
Why do you want to memorize the whole of the 30th chapter?
Why do you want to do extra dhikr?

Make sure you have a clear and sincere intention within, to do it ONLY for the sake of Allah(SWT)!

Tip number 2:

Keep focussed

Being focussed on success at the end of Ramadan will help keep you motivated. Just imagine how you will feel when you can look back on this Ramadan and know that you have achieved SO much!

Tip number 3:

You’re never alone

Many people find that they either have very few Muslims around them or they have non-practising Muslims around them, which have an effect on their productivity and motivation at this point in Ramadan as they don’t have the support system to keep them going.

But don’t worry! You are never alone. Allah(SWT) will help you! Just stay patient, constant and determined! Insha’Allah everything will be okay.

Tip number 4:

Have realistic goals

You only have about 2 weeks left so don’t set yourself incredibly large goals, as when you don’t fulfill them, and you probably won’t, you will feel even worse, making your motivation drop further. Really think about what you are capable of doing in the time left and then make new goals or change your existing ones. This way, you will feel happy with yourself at the end of Ramadan due to the fact that you have fulfilled goals which you set, insha’Allah.

Tip number 5:

Don’t waste time

As we only have less than 2 weeks to go until the end of Ramadan, we can’t waste our time in this blessed month, even if we have jobs or chores or whatever it may be. The easiest way to gain reward is to do dhikr, whilst you’re washing the dishes, reading through your e-mails or commuting.
Whilst commuting, there are a wealth of things that you can do, such as read the Qur’an, read the translation of the Qur’an, listen to beautiful recitations, memorize duas, etc.
Whilst at home, you could have an audio tafsir of the Qur’an playing, you could take short breaks and memorize a few ayat, you could listen to beautiful recitations, etc.

Insha’Allah may we all be completely pardoned of our sins, may we become better Muslims and Muslimahs who will have adopted good habits for life and may we be amongst the servants/devotees of Ar-Rahman! Ameen!

JazakAllahu khairan.

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

A Modern Muslimah ❤
