Do You Know What Is The Purpose Of Ramadhan?
I don’t know about you but each Ramadhan my focus is entirely on achieving the blessings of Allah. I mean, which believing and practicing Muslim doesn’t want to gain the full reward and blessings of Ramadhan? Extra ibadah & promises to Allah to stay steadfast for the rest of the year is all part of my Ramadhan routine.
However, there is one thing I always promise myself not to do at the beginning of Ramadhan but end up doing it anyway. It often wreaks havoc with my conscience.
Are you wondering what I do? Allow me to snitch on myself! Allow me to reveal what most people do during Ramadhan. I start off with the best of intentions each year to eat healthily. I make a pact with myself to fast to the best of my abilities. I use Ramadhan to leverage my personal growth. I try to remember those who are less fortunate. I really do!
The Dilemma We All Face
At the end of Ramadhan, the consequences of my actions are blatantly clear. It becomes obvious that I swallowed litres of haleem (Indian soup) and ate dozens of samoosas (Indian savoury). The problem is that I have at least two people in my family who live for Ramadhan goodies. If my discipline levels are low, I usually end up joining them on their gluttonous feast. I give in to temptations. Wait! I should stop blaming it on them! Do you also have the same problem as me?
Iftaar Food Feasts Are Traditions & Not Religion!
Remember that savories and sweets during Ramadhan, is only a tradition. It occurs out of greed. It is not part of Islam. This unnecessary food becomes a pre-occupation during the day. It defeats the purpose of this month. Some people even watch cooking channels all day long. Poor salivating sadists. This is not allowed! Curb yourself my dear and beloved friend!
Are you are one of those people who end up fatter after Ramadhan? Read on for an ideal solution. The fact remains that our Nabi Muhammad (s.a) has taught us the etiquette of eating. A third for food. A third for water and a third for air. That is how we are supposed to eat. As long as you bare this in mind foremost!
For many reasons, it is a sin to over indulge in the consumption of food. Did you notice how difficult it is to bend in ruku, during salah? (prayer)

You won’t train as strenuously, but there is nothing stopping you from doing light exercises. Your discipline levels don’t need to wane. Read On…

What is stopping you from clicking on the link NOW?
You are not bad if you try to lose weight instead of eating mindlessly! As long as your primary purpose for Ramadhan is not weight loss. As long as your mindset is geared towards the pleasure of Allah. So long as you gain Allah swt mercy, blessings and forgiveness, that is what really matters. As long as you strengthen your self-awareness. Make sure to take your best habits with you when Ramadhan departs.
As long as you don’t spend hours on exercise and neglect your salaah! As long as you do NOT focus on weight loss primarily. Your diet and eating habits should be secondary! You should also be eating the way Nabi (s.a) recommended. You should not be over indulging as taught by our prophet. (s.a) As long as you follow the sunnah first you will NEVER go wrong! Your intentions MUST BE CLEAR!
This Ramadhan you will eat the way you were meant to eat. This year you will fast without any guilt. You will gain proper benefits of this month spiritually and physically. Proper eating habits & exercise will grant you enough energy to do extra ibadah! In this way, you will stay focused on your spiritual goals.
