Day 4: Audit Yourself-30 Deeds 30 Days

Day 4: Audit Yourself

It is attributed to Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “Take yourself to account before you are taken to account.” We all know that we will be asked about every single thing we did. We all do things we are ashamed of, and sometimes the problem is that we don’t even notice them.

This Ramadan, try taking out some time to audit yourself. Find a quiet corner and sit down with a piece of paper. Think about what you did today. Where did you go? What did you look at? What things did you say? When you record good things, say Alhamdulillah, because we have been promised, “If you thank Me, I will increase you.” When you notice your faults, ask for forgiveness.

You’ll notice that you’ll wake up the next day with a mindful intentionality, that will help you get over your bad habits.

Day 3: Serving Others – 30 Deeds 30 Days

Day 3: Serving Others

Service: We hear that word again and again. But do we know how central it in in our faith?

In Surah al-Ma’un, Allah warns us not to be like the ones who discourage the feeding of the poor, and ignores the orphan. The interesting part is that this warning comes before the warning about being headless in prayer. Put simply, if you don’t care about others, but think you pray all the time, there is something wrong. Rather, serving others sincerely, will help the state of your prayer.

So this Ramadan, get a head start. Give a meal to a homeless person. Package some sweets for your extended family. Give someone a ride. And see what happens!
