[Reader Discussion] The One Thing You Want to Achieve This Ramadan

by Zaynab Chinoy

Every month, we host a ProductiveMuslim reader discussion where you can share ideas and tips to help each other become more productive. Last month, readers shared many interesting ideas on achieving your goals against all odds. 

The theme for this month’s discussion is the one thing you want to achieve this Ramadan, inshaAllah.

Allah سبحانه و تعالى blesses us with the special season of Ramadan every year: it is unlike any other season because it lasts for just one month and the entire world experiences it at the same time. Just like summer, winter, spring and autumn bring with them their different beautiful colors and harvests; this season comes to rejuvenate the entire world spiritually and ends with a global harvest of positive personal change.

Ramadan is a season of change because just like in other seasons, there are actual physical alterations that take place during this month: the gates of heaven are open, the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained. [Bukhari] The spiritual environment of the entire planet is altered to foster and yield immense spiritual and personal growth!

The rule though, is that at the end of this season, we will only reap what we have sown and taken care of during its thirty days. How many seasons of Ramadan have come and gone in your life, and what have you reaped at their end?

This year’s Ramadan is just over a month away and you’ve got to choose your seeds (goals) now and plan how you’ll be nurturing them throughout Ramadan, inshaAllah. Begin today by asking yourself: what is the one thing I want to achieve this Ramadan, inshaAllah?
