  1. At the stage of start goal/make the right intention: I would like to begin with an important action which we may call “Tafkur” which is a self discussion that is crucial to create an ownership and belief in the plan which we will follow to achieve our goals.

    5 facts that we need to sell it to ourselves and turn it to be a part of our belief DNA:

    1. This Ramadan can be the last Ramadan in our life. No argument

    > Reality in life : How may we know that Ramadan last year was the last in their life.
    >Quraan: An-Nisa 77?” Say: “Short is the enjoyment of this world. The Hereafter is (far) better for him who fears Allah , قل متاع الدنيا قليل والآخرة خير لمن اتقي
    > Hadeeth: “I work for worldly affairs like your everlasting, and work for the hereafter like you die tomorrow.”

    2. An opportunity before the day of regret

    Narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said that it is no creature at the Day judgement, will not regret and remorse, but do not benefit him………..

    3. Tranquillity and confidence
    > Quraan Al- Raad 28, Al Taghabun11, Al Talaq 3, Al Baqara 186, Al Dhariyat 23, Al Tawuba 120,
    Ghafer 51,& Al Imran 139
    > Hadeeth The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him asked Haritha: “((How did you Become O Haritha?)) Said:” become a believer really! “Said peace be upon him: ((See what you say…………..

    4. Sustainability on the obedience to Allah after Ramadan

    5. True express of love to Allah, the prophet (PBUH),Islam and the believers

    Asslamu Aleikum

  2. for those who said “getting a sahib” is difficult, it’s not.
    I am thinking of asking my own mother since I live at home with them.
    you can easily ask your husband/wife or daughter/son or close friend.
    No excuses ;)

  7. As salaamu alaikum,

    Nice post… May Allah ( swt ) help us to act on it. However I am not sure whether writing down the goals makes it more likely that I will do it? I have been used to makING goals and planning my goals everyday. However some of them stay there for quite sometime. Most of the time at work goes at work. after coming home it’s the family and we go to bed. Finding the time is difficult. If you have 5-10 goals from different aspects of life juggling them seems difficult especially changing gear from work goal to islamic goal to community goal etc. is quite challenging. Will be very glad to hear some tips.

  8. assalamalikum
