So SubhanAllah the month of Shaban has now arrived and so Ramadan is not far at all. I'm going to take this month inshaAllah to try and prepare for Ramadan as much as I can. I have read some sisters' blogs and alhamdulillah they have inspired me. In previous years I have made so many plans for Ramadan that were perhaps not realistic and so at the end of the Ramadan I have been disappointed. At the end of this Ramadan I want to come out feeling like I have achieved something, improved myself and my relationship with Allah Subhanahu Ta'la inshaAllah.
At the moment I can think of two areas of my deen (Islam) that I want to concentrate on inshaAllah and perhaps by the time I get to Ramadan I would be ready to add more.
1) SALAH: InshaAllah I am going to try and read every Salah punctually at the earlist time with concentration.
2) MEMORISATION OF QUR'AN: Unfortunatley I haven't been memorizing Qur'an for a long time now and so I'm going to revisit surahs that I have memorised in the past and then learn some new ones inshaAllah. To achieve this goal I plan to spend 2 days at the most on the surahs I should already know and then after that learn a new ayah(verse) every day.
May Allah SWT give me the ability to achieve these goals so that I get closer to Him,May He make it easy for everyone else to achieve their goals,ameen Peace and Blessing be upon Muhammad,his family,his companions and all those who follow his way until the day of Judgement ameen
