Lapsing in ibaadat….

So the last couple of days I’ve been lapsing in my ibaadat…. I’m not reading enough quran majid and my mind is beginning to wonder about worldly things whilst I’m praying which is not a good sign.  I’m also having mood swings resulting in me throwing a couple of hissy fits now and again.  This could be because PMS is approaching but none the less my short fuse needs to be kept under wraps at least for this month.

 How do you keep your minds focused when you’re praying??? Sometimes when i catch myself drifting I try to snap out of it by reminding myself that I’m standing before my lord…. but thats only when i catch myself drifting away….. I guess learning to understand more arabic might help…. no???

My Goals for Ramadan

As the first taraweeh prayer commences tomorrow night, I have used today to set myself some clear cut goals to help me achieve a deeper sense of spritual awareness. Inspired from 10 great goals to set for this Ramadan and The objectives of ramadhan fasting

1. To Learn at least 4 new Surahs during the course of the month.

2. Inshallah to complete the quran majid at least once during the course of the month. To improve my tawjeed skills by emulating the recitation of a sheikh/hafiz.

3. To try & pray the taraweeh prayer in congregation

4. Increase dhikr “Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah: for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction (Qur’an, 13:28).”

5. Focusing on learning/reading more on the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)

6. Avoid excessive spending.

7. The biggest goal – to not just do the above for just the course of ramadhan but to inshallah continue afterwards which will also help me focus on jihad al nafs (the fight against the inner evils).

Please share your goals for Ramadhan here………
