Each year we get worked up in a spiritual frenzy suddenly transforming ourselves and being so good and devoted. Come Eid, we throw all this away like old clothes and continue in our old ways.

Why we think this is smart is hilarious when it isn’t baffling. We outsmart no one but ourselves when we act like this. It shows an inner ignorance of the core essence of the month. Little do we realize that it is an opportunity to remodel and improve our lives for the next eleven months.

Whatever you achieve this month, try your best to practice it everyday afterwards. It may be difficult but if you stay committed to and believe in your goals,you will realize them in sha Allah.

Only then can we say we have attained maximal benefit.
