Project “Recover Ramadan” – Step 7: Realise that an attitude adjustment is necessary

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

In the last Recover Ramadan post, I asked what all the first six steps had in common.

The answer? All of them are connected to a change in attitude.

See, this is the main problem: our attitude.

Attitude? Yes.

For example, many Muslims have this belief that following Islam properly will somehow hamper their life and stop them from “having fun.” They think of Islam as some sort of shackle.

Well, that’s wrong because this dunya (worldly life) is actually the shackle but most people fail to realise that.

So, such people need to start thinking of Islam as something that frees them rather than something that traps them. After this, they’ll stop regarding Islam as a burden and will enjoy practicing it.

So, we need to figure what issues we may have  with our attitude with regards to pleasing Allah and then solve them, insha-Allah.

The next few parts will deal with more “attitude problems”, insha-Allah.
