From the Shaykh who brought you “Towards an Outstanding Ramadan” and the Heartwheel Journal, AlMaghrib Institute presents a worldly anticipated event:

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]

The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) said:

“It (Ramadhan) is the month, whose beginning is mercy, its middle, forgiveness and its end, emancipation from the fire (of hell)”

[Bihar al-Anwar]

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

  1. Jazakum Allahu khayr for posting it akhee.

    I was researching where the Ilminar was being posted and I found something …

    Here’s the quote:
    [“The Fasting and The Furious: Don’t Wake Me Up. They are back. They are fasting. And boy are they hungry. This summer, be prepared for a blockbuster thrill-ride through the winding alleys of sheri, iftar, and sit back and enjoy the time of your life in taravi. Watch as the imam races through it with lightning speed – don’t look now, or you’ll get whiplash. Coming to a Masjid near you. Summer 2009.”]
