Ramadan Goals :)

I read NeverEvers post about Ramadan Objectives. MashAllah, so I just added a few of mine. This will be my second real Ramadan, Al-Hamdulilah. Just a few goals I'm striving to achieve. Also right now is a good time to start fasting and preparing. Listening to lectures is always a good imaan booster! I highly recommend the Life of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallahu alahaya wa salam) by Sheikh Anwar Awalaki. And the Here After series is really good too, I still haven't finished it yet, inshAllah soon! SubhanAllah, the Sahabah (May Allah be pleased with them all) use to prepare 6months in a advance. Tommorow is a Monday you know what the means... its sunnah to fast on Mondays and Thursdays! :)

  • Pray 5times a day on time
  • Pray Taraweeh/Sunnah
  • Go to Jummah every Friday
  • Finish the Quran 4 times
  • Give Charity
  • Give Dawah
  • Completely stay away from T.V, Music, Magazine etc.
  • Reflect on the purpose of life
  • Keep a positive attitude
  • Be in a constant state of Taqwa
  • Giving Zakat on time and energy
  • Always renew my intentions
Keep your goals high but know everyone has limits. Sometimes focusing on the basics is the best way to uplift your Imaan and understand the virtues of this blessed month. Ramadan isn't about burning yourself out but spiritually and mentally growing. Be realistic and at the same time optimistic.

When the heart is clean indeed actions will follow in such a state of purity. Realizing I'm not only abstaining from food and water but my tongue, ears and eyes are fasting as well. Ramadan Kareem! (:


  1. MashaAllah, excellent list! I get so excited to see other people's goals. To see us all preparing for Ramadhan and turning ourselves toward Allah. EEEKKK it's really exciting :-D

    I'm starting to really enjoy the feel of the Ummah, I think.

    InshaAllah we will all make it to Ramadhan this year and be truly focused on His majesty.
