Making the Best in Ramadan

The Holy month of Ramadan is a great opportunity for all believers to reestablish their relationship with Almighty Allah . During this month, Allah opens the doors of guidance, mercy, and forgiveness and showers His blessings on mankind. Blessed are those who avail this opportunity and work hard to obtain the pleasure of Allah .

Following are some points to remember that may help us have a better Ramadan:
Sahoor: Rasulullah said, “Allah sends blessings on those who eat Sahoor (meal before Fajr) and the angels pray for them.” (Ibn Habban) We should never miss Sahoor as it is blessed food and a Sunnah of the Prophet .
Salat Al-Taraweeh: Perform twenty raka’ah of Taraweeh every night.
Salat Al-Tahajud: Other than Taraweeh, perform some raka’ah of Tahajud prayer.
Dua: After Tahajud, spend some time making Dua for yourself, your family, the community, and the whole Muslim Ummah. This is extremely needed and very few do it. Every person in the family should engage in Dua and prayers in the darkness of the night and in isolation. Cry before Allah for forgiveness and for all of your needs.
Crying and begging to Allah attracts His Mercy. Rasulullah encouraged his followers to cry when making Dua.
Salah in the Masjid: Try your best to perform every Salah in the Masjid with congregation (jama’ah)
Perform the additional following ibadah:
1. Recite Istighfaar 100 times a day (i.e. Astaghfirallah)
2. Send blessing on Rasulullah 100 times a day
3. Tasbeehaat 100 times a day (i.e. Subhanallah Wal-Hamdulillah wala Illaha Illallah Wallahu Akbar)
4. Recite at least one Juz of the Qur’an every day
Avoid all kinds of sins: Rasulullah said, “Many of those who fast get nothing out of it except hunger” (Nasa’ee) Advising his wife, once Rasulullah said, “O Aishah, refrain from even the minor sins because Allah will question you about them also.” (Ibn Majah)
Do not become angry: Avoid all quarrels, fights, and arguments which may lead you to anger.
Use only Halal food bought by Halal earnings. Avoid all doubtful items.
Reduce the amount of:
1. Eating
2. Sleeping
3. Talking
Unfortunately, it is very common in many Masajid to sit and chat after iftaar. This time should be used for Nawafil prayers, recitation of the Holy Qur’an, Tasbeeh, and Dua. Masjid is the House of Allah . It must be given its due respect. Disrespecting the house of Allah is disrespect to Allah .
Raising the voice or talking of worldly matters in the Masjid is forbidden. It is the responsibility of every Muslim to maintain the order, silence, respect, and cleanliness in the Masjid.
May Allah bless and guide all of us.

What has been going on lately

As I promised! :D
Lemme start from the beginning of the week, or maybe before

Previous weeks:
They were boring as hell, all I did, was go to my swimming practice, the club, and my grandparents house! The only good thing, is that my bestfriend came from Bahrain and I was kinda spending some time with her. Oh, and I used to read too! (the only fun thing)

I'm reading the Lord Of The Rings series, (of course you heard of it) I read The Hobbit, and the first two. THEY'RE TOO AWESOME I TELL YOU.
And now i'm in the last book, Return Of The Kings, it took me so long, cuz like everyday I'd have headaches, or sleep late and not have time to read and stuff, it sucks :( now I have to catch up with my friend who's in the LAST CHAPTER. Oh God :(

I had practice. The swimming pool stuck! Seriously! They had a championship the day before and I guess they didn't clean the water, like ew. I stayed there one whole hour and I couldn't help it!
After that, I went to the jaccuzi, it was so relaxing :) I went back home after that, ate dinner (its so cool swimming first thing in the morning, then coming back home for dinner) Mom and Dad weren't home, they had this orientation for two days, they came back on Wednesday (only yesterday) I was planning to do lotsa stuff, but THERE WAS NO ELECTRICITYY :(( it sucked! like all day long!! gosh. So, eventually, I did nothing all day long but talk to my friends in the phone to plan about the day after :D

The day after (Tuesday):
We made a surprise early (with only 2 days) birthday party for Soraya We made it early because her birthday was the first day in Ramadan, so like a big no!
Ask me how it went :D
I was soooo nervous all day long! and excitedd!! Thank God she didn't even guess about it at all! She was actually surprised, like once she saw us she screamed!
It was so fun! I hope she liked it cuz we were trying our best to make her happy :)

I think we'll be going to the beach in Ramadan, which will be a new experience, cuz dad just finished this course he was teaching today and he couldn't leave it, AND ACTUALLY I WONT BE ABLE TO WAIT ANY LONGERR!! I really hope we do though.

This Ramadan, i'll try to make it different than all the previous ones, in many ways. Like all the things I was willing to do before but was too lazy or always forgot, i'll try to do them and my biggest goal actually is to LOSE WEIGHT. I'll try to have an one-hour walk everyday. Pray for me!

More soon insha'allah! (thats if i'll be able to log on the computer in ramadan aslun)
