-This is a scheduled post. I have decided to stop "live posts" during the month of Ramadhan, to try to concentrate more fully on what I need to during the month. Please don't hesitate to make comments, as I will be stopping in once in a while to check how every body is doing. Have a blessed month every one!
I like to have at least two goals during Ramadhan that are very easily achievable, simple little goals. I mean, I could set myself to read the whole of the Qur'an in Arabic during the month, but at this point(being able to recognize the alphabet but not much more), I would not achieve my goal.
I also like to try to pick one thing not really religious in nature. Like a bad habit or something that I want to get rid of.
So this year, my first goal is to memorize four of the smaller surahs. More if possible, but at a minimum four. Right now, I know only seven surahs- Al-Fatihah, An-Nas, Al Ikhlas, Al-Falaq, Al-Kafirun, Al-Kauthar, and Al-Lahab(just learned this one recently). So four at a minimum, everybody please make a dua for me that I am able to meet and even exceed this goal!
My second, non-religious goal is to make sure there are no dirty dishes in the sink after fajr(the pre-dawn prayer). I totally admit to being lazy and leaving some of the night dishes in the sink to wash after breakfast. I have had my fair share of dish washer duty while working in fast food, and I just despise doing the dishes. This year, inshAllah, I will break this habit, and I will clean every dish before fajr. InshAllah, I can keep this up even after Ramadhan, and do all dishes as soon as a meal is over!
Anyone else have any Ramadhan goals?
