Assalaamu alaikum all,
The month (April) is nearly over alhamdulillaah. With just 1 and 1/2 days left the end is in sight, so its time to decide how we are going to finish this race. Will we give up or finish strong. Alhamdulillaah if our deeds are accepted by Allaah there is reward in our intention even if we don’t manage to achieve what we originally set out to do so I pray that Allaah accept it from all of us aameen.
So I’ll begin with the children may Allah bless them. They finished Mu’minoon and are 4 pages into suratun-Noor alhamdulillaah. I don’t think they’ll be able to finish it in time but alhamdulilllah they are still happy of gotten where they are which is good as there are no losers in this game. My husband is on the 7th page of Surah Maryam sickness and work slowed him down but he’s still going maasha Allaah and with 1 page left he may well just go all out before the month ends.
As for me well, my grand dreams to finish Al Hajj and Al Mu’minoon have now been reduced and I’ll be happy if I get to finish Al Hajj by the end of April. I got sick too and then (insert another excuse here!). I have 2 pages to go so its possible but I just have to focus and stay away from ALL distractions.
So, now again it’s your turn, how have you been doing? HAve you made any interesting discoveries about your own learning style or maybe you have learned what your main distractions are. Please do let me know in the comment box below.
If it’s not going well don’t worry, it’s not too late, you can just reduce your goal like I did, the key is just to keep moving, there are no losers in this race as long as you keep moving. You should never beat yourself up and feel like you are behind, just pick up where you are and make a fresh start.
With 2 months left to go, if we do another challenge it might be something we have to complete pre-Ramadhaan in-shaa Allaah.
May Allaah accept thus effort from us all Aameen.
