Throughout history Muslims proved that achievement reached its limits during the holy month of Ramadan. Focus is strengthened and time is blessed. What does battle of bader, battle of hiteen, ayn jalut and the conquering of Constantinople all have in common? They were accomplished in Ramadan with great victories and success.
When we apply this to daily activities of individuals we see that we worship Allah more, and work harder with Integrity. Why? Due to the blessings of Allah and the plenty of time we have on our hands. Daily meals do not take up our valuable time. And the focus is Increased. When you pay attention you achieve more.
We understand from the words Allah says in the holy Quran and by the teachings of the prophet may peace and blessings be upon him that the main purpose of Ramadan is to fear Allah more and do good deeds and avoid trivial matters and avoid time wasters.
Applying this verse from the holy Quran to everyday life during the holy month categorizes many things that are being thrown at us as Muslims especially during this month such as silly commercials on TV or the cluttered programming made to serve one purpose only (to pass time) as a huge time-killer that you could have used more wisely and productively.
To speak from a personal standpoint, I have a personal yearly goal to write 1 book every year. Since I set this goal for myself I have found that my focus strengthens during Ramadan and have always completed my yearly goal during this blessed month.
I can’t stress this enough. Ramadan is the month of productivity.
