Salam Everyone! Ramadan Mubarak! I hope this month is full of blessings and prosperity for you all! Its been a good month since I’ve sat down to write a blog post. Thats mainly because I didnt have fun blogging anymore. I know crazy, Ive been doing this for two years and all of a sudden I hate it?

Ramadan is the best time to self- reflect and in preparation for it, I began thinking of all the things that became unnecessary stress for me. I am a very paranoid person. I worry about every single thing. How many followers do I have? How many likes did this picture get? Why is that girl staring at me? Why doesn’t that person like me? All these annoying thoughts really made me hate social media. So I decided to take a break for a bit, not for too long, but just some time to really focus my energy on the important things like, my family, my religion, myself.

Thats why my one of my goals for this Ramadan is to make this the best as possible as a way to distance me from the Dunya. In the end, none of this will really matter. When God asks you how you used the time he gave you, what will your answer be? ” Uh, yea, sorry, but I was kinda busy tryin to finish watching all these shows on netflix, so uh thats why I missed this Salaat.” Lol jokes aside, I want to make the time I spend here precious and use it to really strengthen the Deen, strengthen the Ummah. The biggest problem among our youth is that we get too distracted, we have the attention span of a peanut. We need to stop worrying so heavily on fruitless things. During Ramadan, the masjid is full of young children and teenagers however, any other day in the year, you’ll be lucky to find that many people coming for Salaat. Its sad, I know, but we all do it. Something always seems to get in the way. We never seem to put Allah SAW first. Why is that? For many, the afterlife is such a foreign idea. Put God first and he will never put you last.

Im not a perfect muslim, no one can really say they are. But what truly is in my heart, only Allah can see and I pray that I along with many others will be guided to the right path. So for now, I will keep my head up high, and smile because its sunnah and I will continue to smile because I know that as long as my faith in Allah is strong, then everything will be alright.

  1. It all sound good to me 🙂
    Actually I totally agree…the funny thing is the other day I was noticing all these girls (hijabis) posting so many photos of themselves on FB and IG, and it is obvious it’s all in the interest of seeking ‘likes’ and it came to me: Why don’t you just like yourself? Then you won’t need all these people to *like* you! It is so simple really!
    It happens to all of us, and us women seem to be more vulnerable to it than men argh! So it’s good to take some time and chill and realize your self worth is out of this world (literally lol!) and is totally about character, inner light, your moral compass and your connection to the Almighty which will make someone far more beautiful than clothes and makeup, as you know 🙂
    Blessings to you this Ramadan!
