With Muharram being days away, this means a new Islamic year is upon us. It is important to take a step back and reflect on how to improve ourselves for the coming year especially as Muslims.
We all have the intentions to make changes, to kick-start a better, more productive routine and one that brings us closer to Allah. Yet, many of us get disappointed not before long as breaking familiar habits is not an easy thing to do despite our surge of motivation telling us that it is.
The way to succeed is to go back to basics, to be realistic, and to embrace change with a calm mind-set. Here is a sample of some resolutions to guide you on your beginning into the new Islamic year. May Allah ease all our plans this year in shaa Allah!
