Ramazan, the month of fasting, is just around the corner. It is the time of the year when you can find everyone around you trying to act upon this order of Quran:
” فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرَاتِ”
This Holy month hold so many blessings in it. To get more out of it, we need to first look into what are those things which need our attention and then organize them in a form of Ramazan Resolution.
As we know that Ramazan holds its importance in Islam for being a month during which Quran was revealed on Holy Prophet s.a.w. So first priority should be given toward the recitation of Holy Quran. If you recite 4-5 pages regularly after every Salat you would be able to complete one recitation easily.
Nowadays Islam is known to people because of extremism. In order to prove these allegations wrong, we ourselves need to learn those teachings of Holy Prophet s.a.w that are the essence of teachings of Islam. There is no other better way to do this but by learning 40 Hadiths, i.e 2-3 every day from “Chayhal Hadiths” by Mir M.Ishaq Ahmad Sahib. If you want to learn 40 hadiths with in-depth analysis of them you should read Chalees Jawahir paray by Hazrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad sahib R.A. چالیس جواہر پارے
30 days are more than enough to adopt a habit or to change a routine. If you are irregular in offering 5 prayers regularly Ramazan is the best time for you to change it. Make a Salat Calendar and mark your prayers on it regularly.
Being a follower of Sultan Ul Qalam A.S, i.e Promised Messiah A.S, you really need to make your weapon of knowledge and reasoning powerful by reading his writings. Hazoor atba has advised us to read “Philosophy of Teachings of Islam”. To make this learning fun you can also participate in our Ramazan Quiz where we have included this book in our Quiz as well. follow @RamzanQuiz on Twitter to know more about it.
So these are the basic outlook of the things that should be your focus during the holy month of Ramadan. To make it more fruitful you should also make a schedule for using social media apps. That way Ramazan will also be helping you in reducing the addiction of these sites.
If you have vacations from your work or your college you have a perfect chance of doing an Aytaqaf. There is no better way to get closer to God than Aytaqaf. You can also formulate a plan for that as well as I did last year which you can read here: “10 days of spiritual rendezvous with Allah”
above all, you should try to work for the betterment of your own self or for self-reformation. Hazoor atba has advised us about that many times. (Self Reformation friday sermon )
Write a letter to Hazoor atba in every ashra. Tell him about your progress and your Resolution.
Utilize maximum time in remembering Allah and praying for the peace and betterment of mankind.
Now by the end of this post, I hope you have a clear idea of how to formulate a Ramazan Resolution. May Allah Almighty enable us to earn as many blessings as we can from this Holy Month. Ameen
