Eid 2014

Eid Mubarak! Another Ramadan has come and gone. Have you achieved the goals that you set for yourself this Ramadan?

For myself, I challenged myself to write this parenting challenge and it has been a challenge for me to write it each day for 30 days! Alhamdulillah, I have finally finished (even though it’s a bit late). At the start, I had prewritten a few days and was ready to go. But as Ramadan progressed with praying Tarawih, reading Qur’an, parenting, working and cooking – it all caught up with me! It took a lot out of me as many nights after Tarawih I found myself staring at the screen with my words all running into each other and dozing off.

Would I do this challenge again next year? Probably not but if I do it would be something different. And I would have everything prepared a few months in advanced! So when the time comes I would cut and paste and schedule it in. (By the way, my inspiration for this challenge came from a book by Aa'id Abdullah al Qarni entitled 'Thirty Lessons for Those Who Fast'.)

What have I learnt from writing this challenge? Quite a lot, masha Allah. I have learnt where my weaknesses and strengths are. I will continually work on the areas in my parenting that are weakest throughout the months ahead. Just because Ramadan is over for this year does not mean that I don’t continue to challenge myself in my parenting.

Having said that, here are all the challenges for easy access:
