Project “Recover Ramadan” – Step 2: Realise that you can change

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

[Okay, you voted. And apparently, most of you want short posts on a daily basis. Alright then.

Starting from tomorrow, insha-Allah, I’ll be posting twice a day: once for the Recover Ramadan posts and another for the regular posts. However, on some days, I’ll just have the Recover Ramadan posts. Hey, Tita Umm Muawiyah needs a break too.]

So, how do get back into the Ramadan Routine of Righteousness?

Step 1 was to realise that your iman was in shambles.

Step 2 is to realise that you can change.

Huh, you say?

Erm, yes. I’ve met many sisters who seem to doubt their ability to actually become righteous. And this of course is from Shaytaan (the devil) because he wants to defeat us before we even begin!

Reformation starts from the heart and then it affects the limbs. If the heart does not believe that it can be more obedient to Allah, then do you think the tongue and the limbs will behave in a righteous manner?

So, what do we do? First we accept that we need to change. Second, we need to accept that we can change, insha-Allah.

[Hope this was “short” enough for the daily Recover Ramadan posts. Or do you want them to be shorter?]

    Asalaam alaykum

    Please dont make these posts any shorter. I just got to the end and as usual expecting to see the ‘Read more’ but then realised these were meant to be short :)

    Jazakallah khair. It is just perfect. Anything shorter would hardly convey a full message.
