What Level Are You On?


Assalamualaikum to all brother and sister... 

As we’re approaching mid-Ramadan, we need to assess ourselves from every level and see how well we’ve done. We need to assess our Spiritual Productivity, Physical Productivity and Social Productivity.

Usually people can be divided into
3 categories around this time:
Category 1: Those who started well and continue to do well. These are the power starters and those who push themselves each and every day to make the most of Ramadan!

Category 2: Those who started well but slowly start to slip in their good deeds. These are the people who had an amazing strong start, but soon they relaxed and next thing they know their schedules have gone hay-wire.

Category 3: Those who had a bad start and they are not sure what they can do to get back up.

For those in Category 1, I say to them, may Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) keep you steadfast! Keep up the good work and never ever let go! It is as narrated in the hadith consistent good deeds is what Allah loves.

For those in Category 2, don’t panic! Assess what needs to change in your life so you can get back on track, and set yourself a target to do better in the next 10 days. Don’t give up hope, the best part of this month is yet to come inshaAllah!

For those in Category 3, TODAY you must change! Get up now, make wudu, pray 2 raka’ah to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) and ask Him to help you make the most of Ramadan. Trust me, if you continue as you are, come end of Ramadan and you’ll regret it, and by that time, it’ll be too late and you’ll have no one to blame but yourself. 

wallahu'alam~ =),
