What are your intentions for Ramadan

Posted by Sajid Bashir | 12:21 AM

Ramadan is coming and we have to list out what are our intentions for this ramadan and what should be our islamic routine so that we could make our Allah happy this month.

‘Umar b. al-Khattab narrated that the Prophet (Peace be upon him ) said: Deeds are [a result] only of the intentions [of the actor], and an individual is [rewarded] only according to that which he intends. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His messenger. Whosoever emigrated for the sake of worldly gain, or a woman [whom he desires] to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which [moved him] to emigrate.” Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim.

When i ask my friends this Question most of them have answers similar to the following

  • to Read Qur’an from A to Z .
  •  to Pray the 5 prayers on Time .
  •  to Fast ^_^ !
  •  to Pray Tarweh ^_^
  • to Do Zikr All the time .
  •  to watch Islāmic TV Shows
  •  to Pray Al-Fajr on time
  • to give charity and help poor people .

and Many other beautiful intentions ..

You May share your own intentions too ^_^ ..write them down then continue reading :)

so the Question was ..why doing all of these just in Ramadan ? :D
I mean ..Reading Qur’an from A to Z in Ramadan ..why do you want to Read it ? :D ..because it is Ramadan ? O_o ..umm we worship Allah the god of Ramadan :) ..no Ramadan ! :D 

some people I know personally :D ..and I used to be this person ..Read Quran in Ramadan ..and May give up in the middle..but even if they continued Reading..in Shawal ..the next month ..they leave Quran again ..


and same to all other intentions..some people do them just in Ramadan ..but before and after Ramadan , nothing of these is done O_o

so ..I am saying don’t Read ? :D don’t do these intentions ? :D

well NOO !
Personally i am just trying to present my Own biggest intention for Ramadan : 

My intention is to TRAIN myself on good stuff (all the good intentions) so after Ramadan  I became Better than before Ramadan ! :D 

I believe Yes ..in Ramadan we all worship and work more ..but to take a big big push ..so after Ramadan when we slow down again ..I become better than before Ramadan ..
Also if I am doing something wrong before Ramadan ..Train on doing it right on Ramadan ..

like people who don’t pray in time..if for 30 days they prayed on time ? :D so After Ramadan they pray on time most of the prayers too..that would be GREAT !

also I noticed now while writting..that we fast for 30 days in Ramadan ..and It’s Sunnah to fast 6 days in Shwal (the month after Ramadan) ..and it has a big big REWARD ..why ? :D it is like the least percent ..that you must go out of Ramadan with ..After fasting 30 days..at least Fast 6 days in Shawal..then after this we can fast 3 days every month ..or Monday and Thursday ..etc ..

so ..ask yourself ..what do you need to do for Allah in this Ramadan so you can be  a better person after Ramadan.
