In the second season of the Productive Muslim Podcast, we go through the Pre- Ramadan Bootcamp with our host, Mifrah Mahroof. The purpose of this bootcamp is to help you prepare for Ramadan spiritually, physically and socially so that when Ramadan begins you will be in a better position to make the most out of it.
The Prophet (SAW) said, “Jannah is surrounded by hardships and the Hell-Fire is surrounded by desires.” [Muslim]
As you prepare for Ramadan, and perhaps you’re worried that things might not be easy during Ramadan especially with the long fasting hours and late nights, remember the above hadeeth and keep it at the top of your mind. Another interpretation of this hadeeth is that getting closer to Jannah won’t get easier, but will always be surrounded by hardships and tough choices.
So did you do your 3 challenges today?
- yyy means I have done all three challenges today
- nnn means I didn’t do them today
- yny I did the Spiritual, not the Physical, but the social
- nny I didn’t do the spiritual, nor the physical, but I did the social
To be more clear:
- 1st y or n is for Spiritual
- 2nd y or n is for Physical
- 3rd y or n is for Social
Thank you for listening!
