Last 10 Days of Ramadan...Ask urself 25 Questions?

Post by Babba Jee on Fri Oct 05, 2007 8:49 am

Asalam-o-Alaikum,


Ramadan, as usual, has flown by. Despite planning beforehand, many of
us may have got caught up in a routine after accustoming ourselves to
the change in schedule the blessed month brings.This may have affected
our initial plans to increase our worship, contemplation and to seek
Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy with greater fervor. But the last ten
days and nights of Ramadan are still ahead for us to benefit from. Ask
yourself these questions and see what you can do to make the most of
what’s left of Ramadan this year.



1] Have I kept pace with the amount of Qur’an I wanted to read, or have I fallen behind?


2] If so, how much do I have to read on a daily basis the rest of Ramadan to catch up?


3] Have I tried to attend Taraweeh regularly, or did I use weak excuses to get out of it?


4] Did I ever pray the night prayer?


5] Did I try praying my five daily prayers with more sincerity, concentration, and focus than usual?


6] Did I invite anyone over for Iftaar (breaking the fast)?


7] Did I help any needy person, even a beggar, when I was fasting?


8] Did I regularly seek Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy with sincerity, fear and hope?


9] Did I encourage my family to fast or participate in regular
opportunities for more rewards that come with Ramadan (i.e. good deeds
in general, but also Taraweeh, more reading of the Qur’an, etc).


10] Did I memorise any more Qur’an than what I knew before Ramadan started?


11] Did I try to be more patient in Ramadan than I normally am?


12] Did I try to control my anger, especially while fasting?


13] Did I try harder to avoid backbiting and slander?


14] Did I constantly check my intentions, to make sure that my good
deeds were for the sake of Allah alone, not to impress others, gain
their favour or to show off?


15] Was there even an atom of pride in my heart?


16] Was I quieter and more contemplative?


17] Did I cry in my prayers?


18] Did I read more Islamic literature apart from the Qur’an?


19] Did I make sincere repentance to Allah, really feeling sorry for my sins?


20] Did I forgive those who hurt me?


21] Did I avoid hurting anyone with my attitude, words, intentions or actions?


22] Did I give any more Sadaqah (charity) than I normally give?


23] Did I share the message of Ramadan and Islam with a non-Muslim?


24] Did I share the message of Ramadan and Islam with a non-practising Muslim family member or friend?


25] Did I feel annoyed at being hungry while fasting or did I rejoice?
