We will aimlessly follow our wants until we can no longer attain our needs.
If I reblog a quote or a poem or anything and it has a bad word I delete it or star it lol 😝
This is why it hurts the way it hurts.
You have too many words in your head. There are too many ways to describe the way you feel. You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.
You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much.
I was talking with some girls who expressed concern for their friends who completely changed in Ramadan and became hijabis, read quran, didn’t miss a prayer, etc. But as soon as Eid came around they’d go back to drinking, hanging out with guys, and not really praying.
We talked and decided that when you change (for the better) in Ramadan, it has to be sincere. If you know you’re going back to your old ways as soon as it’s Eid, how can you truly be sincere in what you do?
At first I didn’t take it personally or think about it, but now I see that I’m doing the same. How many of us stop listening to music and stop watching tv and movies just waiting for the day to come when we once again can fill our heads with inappropriate words and images?
How many of us limit (or don’t limit) our time on facebook, tumblr, twitter, instagram, until we can post whatever we want?
How many of us try to avoid backbiting or swearing? And maybe we lessen it but we don’t completely stop.
I know I’m guilty.
Ramadan is our fresh start; yes every day can be a fresh start if you decide to change, but insha’Allah our sins will have been forgiven and with the stamina we’ve built we can continue the good habits we’ve started after Ramadan is over.
Even if we take one tiny thing and try to continue it the rest of the year that’s a benefit.
Myself first, let’s all take just two minutes to really think about it and set our minds to at least one thing we’re going to do. Let’s not forget our only goal in this life is Jannah, no matter what. Don’t let the world and worldly things control you.
Little watermelon, cantaloupe, & honeydew melon balls this morning. So deliciously hydrating 💦
