Let's Prepare

I've been waiting for this moment forever. Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah it's so close, I can feel it.

Ramadhan, that blessing month Ramadhan is just a couple of weeks away. My heart can finally come to rest. This blessed month is very near and it's important for us to be prepared.

A first would be to fast. You should take your time to make up your missed fasts before Ramadhan. If you already have done that then, mashaAllah! Here's option two : Fast the month of Sha'ban anyway. Don't wait 'til Ramadhan and be totally off day 1. Try to already get used to the feel of fasting and when Ramadhan comes you'll be ready to fast full-time.

Second, cleanse yourself, physically and spiriturally. Try not to stuff yourself when you're eating. Try to keep an eye on the things you eat so you can take care for your body properly. On the spirituality side, repent. Clean your heart for Ramadhan so you may fully benefit from it inshaAllah.

Third, make dua. Pray to Allah swt to make this the Ramadhan you needed all along. Although Ramadhan is near, that doesn't mean that we will make it there. Pray to Allah to keep you alive for Ramadhan. Make a list of everything you want in this world and in the akhira. Then when Ramadhan comes, convert it into a dua and read it every night so that maybe that night it may get accepted inshaAllah.

Lastly, try to pray your compulsory prayers and read from the Qur'an more so this can be a habit during the month inshaAllah.

Take Sha'ban and prepare. Ramadhan is the time where you can totally re invent yourself to become a better servant of Allah, so take this month and prepare.

May Allah swt make help us benefit from this Ramdhan and help us come closer to him. Ameen
