Ramadan is Just the Beginning - How to Plan for Lasting Changes

If a Muslim continues to display positive changes after Ramadan, this is not only a possible sign that the fasting has been accepted, but also a sign that a new habit has been formed.

During Ramadan, we strive to make positive changes. From the early hours of the morning as dawn breaks until the later hours of the evening, we carefully schedule when we will eat, pray and perform our tasks. We are more conscious of time and of our behaviour.

Despite the challenges to one’s mood when hungry or thirsty, we display a positive and modest demeanor as best as we can.
