Top 8 Ways to Boost Your Ramadan Spirit This Year



1. Dua
Ask Allah to make this the most awesome, spiritually uplifting Ramadan you've ever had. Only He can make it happen and relying on Him completely is one step in boosting our spirits.

2. Quiet your mind, turn off the...
TV, internet, radio, cell phone, pager, iPod, etc. No, not all day, but for at least 10 minutes a day. Find a quiet place, close your eyes and connect with God. At first, your mind will swirl with the useless and not-so-useless info in your head. But force it to think of three things in these few minutes:

Allah
your purpose in life
are you living your life on purpose?

Do this every day of Ramadan if you can. If that's not possible, try it at least three times a week.

3. Learn about great Muslims
Even if you've read it before, read or listen to Abdul Wahid Hamid's Companions of the Prophet again this Ramadan. Read about or listen to the story of a Companion daily. Well-written and short, this is a wonderful way to see how other Muslims retained their strength of faith against incredible odds. A sure-fire spirituality booster.

4. Connect to the Quran
The Quran is God's way of talking to us. It's one of the most important keys to spiritual upliftment. This Ramadan, connect to the Quran in a new way. If you already read Quran regularly, perhaps you can choose a new theme to focus on or select a Surah you haven't read in a while. If you don't read Quran regularly, maybe you can read just two minutes of Quran a day, reading only from the first page you encounter when you open up the Book.

In addition, try to keep a Quranic journal to record your reflections, questions, thoughts, etc. about what you've read.

5. Take care of others
Whether it's someone who's away from their family, a person who's having problems with a spouse or their kids or a fellow student struggling with their grades, make an extra effort this Ramadan to help others out. The spiritual boost you get in return is well worth it.

6. Feed the hungry
While your stomach shrieks in protest, give that panhandler some change, volunteer at a soup kitchen, get involved with your local food pantry or make a couple of bag lunches to give to the hungry you meet on your way to school or work.

7. Give up one lifelong bad habit
Ask yourself what some of your defining traits are. Then decide which is the worst of them. Is it a hot temper? Apathy? Laziness? Impatience? Whatever it is, use this Ramadan to put an end to it. Practice the opposite of your bad habit every day until the end of the month. By then Insha Allah, you'll look back and be amazed at what a change you've made for the better.

8. Use those Nights of Power
The last ten nights or Ramadan aren't called the Nights of Power for nothing. Use these precious times for deep, heartfelt Dua (supplication), self-analysis, reflection and serious thought.

Luahan hati seorang ibu...

Oh ibu..tidak terkata untuk menyatakan jasa ibu, 9 bulan ibu mengandung dengan berbagai dugaan dan cubaan. Ibu menempuh perit dan derita semasa melahirkan..! Semasa dalam pantang, ibu mengalami berbagai situasi yang tak terduga. Mengawasi diri sendiri, mendidik anak yang belum mengerti dan menjaga hati suami yang bukan semua boleh dikongsi. Hati seorang ibu yang cekal sukar dicari, sukar diganti.


Setiap ibu sanggup berkorban untuk anak-anak sedangkan anak belum tentu lagi. Kalau susah, biar ibu yang susah, anak jangan. Kalau ibu lapar, biar anak tidak lapar. Kalau ibu sakit anak jangan sakit. Kalau pakaian, biar anak cukup pakai, ibu tak apa. Kalau ibu sedih, hampir tercabut nyawa pun seboleh-bolehnya tidak diberitahu kepada anak-anak. Itu hanya secebis pengorbanan ibu.


Percayalah bila ibu sudah tiada, barulah anak terasa ketiadaan ibu dan hidup terasa kosong. Tiada tempat untuk mengadu. Kalau ibu ada, ibu buat itu, ibu buat ini, ibu cari itu, ibu cari ini. Ibu banyak boleh buat untuk a…
