The Fasting and the Furious

How to Drive Your Motivation All Throughout Ramadan

August 17, 2009 at 6:50pm (NYC time)

Join us for the second segment of Muhammad Alshareef 2.0 as he discusses how to overcome the motivation dip in the middle of Ramadan. [Muhammad Alshareef 2.0 is a series of free online webinars (Ilminars) conducted by our very own Shaykh Muhammad on]

Ramadan is like a 3-lap NASCAR race that most kick off with a well-oiled and fuelled machine only to discover it needs maintenance by the time it hits Lap 2. Because they haven’t prepared for the middle slack before they rev again into the last 10 days of Ramadan, they’ve suffered a major loss in being the foremost in ‘ibaadah.

Each year, we prepare ourselves for the coming of Ramadan. We attend many workshops on how to prepare for Ramadan, but each year, we fool ourselves into believing that we will drive right through all 30 days fully equipped with tools of ‘ibaadah, fully indulged in the blessed days of the month.

How many times have you:

  • Fell behind in your Qur’aan reading schedule?
  • Felt too tired or demotivated to go to Taraweeh?
  • Became too drained to wake up for suhoor?
  • Shortened your time in Qiyaam because you did pretty ok yesterday?
  • Said to yourself: “I’ll take a break now so that I can be fully energized for the last 10 days”?

What if you could drive right through all the days of Ramadan without feeling the motivation dip in the middle?

What if you could truly capitalize on the middle days of forgiveness? What if your last 10 days of Ramadan were built on the foundations of strength and vitality from the days preceding? What if this Ramadan was the most exceptional Ramadan of your life?

فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ

“Hence, whoever of you lives to see this month (Ramadan) shall fast throughout it…” 2:185

Could you deprive yourself of the most exceptional Ramadan this year?

Tune in for this Ilminar and:

  • Discover how to overcome your middle Ramadan slump
  • Equip yourself with the tools of revitalization and motivation
  • Learn the methods and strategies the Sahaba implemented during Ramadan
  • Comprehend the importance of a fully-rounded Ramadan
  • Unleash your full potential as a worshiper and servant of Allah
  • Anticipate and destroy any roadblocks that will arise during the month of Ramadan

Is it not about time you are foremost in your ‘ibaadah throughout this blessed month?

Rev up your engines and be among The Fasting and the Furious!
