Ramadan Countdown: Preparing for the Best Month of the Year

Yasmin Mogahed on Controlling Our Inner Self (P.1)

To begin the topic of training the nafs and the topic of how we should enter Ramadan, we have to really start from the beginning, and the beginning goes back to the essential question of what is our purpose?

What is our purpose of existence?

This is a question that has been asked by people, philosophers basically, from the beginning of time; Why are we here? What is our purpose? Why were we put in this world? And what we are intended to accomplish?

Essence of Worship

While this is an issue that has been discussed by many philosophers., Allah, exalted is He, has actually given us the answer to this question, a very clear answer. He tells us in the Quran:

{I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.} (Adh-Dhariyat 51; 5)

So Allah explains in this ayah that He has not created jinn and human beings except for one single purpose: to fulfill worship to Allah. So the reason why we exist, the reason why we were created is for this one singular purpose.

The construction of this ayah is important as you notice the ayah begins with a negation, it says that Allah doesn’t just say that He created mankind for this purpose. But rather Allah says that He has NOT created mankind for any other purpose. So you begin by negating any other purpose for which we were created. And then Allah, exalted is He, says this one single purpose...

Ramadan Countdown: Preparing for the Best Month of the Year

Controlling Our Inner Self for True Freedom (P.2)

There two blocks keep us from being good, from seeking that path to the source of peace. The first is Satan, which we know is our external enemy, and he is the source of this outer whispering that happens in our mind and in our heart. The second block is the nafs, self.

Nafs is the inner inclinations. That’s my own self, my inner inclination to do that. All of us want to seek God, but we are human beings and we have inner ailments. Sometimes we get angry, sometimes we feel hatred, selfishness, arrogance, prejudice, and fear. These are all inner ailments which prevent me from attaining that peace by being near to the source of peace, God.

And so in order to seek and reach that source of peace, I have to clean myself of those inner ailments. That is the process of tazkiyah (purification) of the nafs. That’s the process of training and purifying the self. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said:

“When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are chained.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

How To Cross The Ocean Of Dunya Without Drowning

A talk last February by sister Yasmin on how a believer should think of this world like an ocean: from land it looks very beautiful, but a person who enters the ocean without a boat would perish and drown

Our hearts are like boats, as long as they remain above water, we survive. But the moment the water enters the boat, that is when the boat would drown


So don't let this life take over your heart

Ramadan Countdown: Preparing for the Best Month of the Year

Yasmin Mogahed on Controlling Our Inner Self (P.4)

There’s only one thing that feeds the heart and that is God.

There’s nothing else that is going to feed your heart. So where I am able to empty out all the other focus, now I can focus on what really is going to feed me. This is what fasting and Ramadan is all about.

So we have to make sure that we do not let Ramadan and fasting just be about leaving food and drink, about just being hungry and thirsty, and that we see the inner purpose of Ramadan, and go through Ramadan and come out different...

Fear of Allah

A nice talk by sister Yasmin on the concept of taqwa, i.e. fear of Allah

If you have fear of Allah, He will make a way out for you from every hardship, and will provide for you from places they would not imagine

A talk by sister Yasmin which she gave last February where she talked about Love, Respect, Anger shared Responsibilities between Husband and Wife in maintaining tranquility in a Marriage.

She touches upon anger management, the Prophetic way of interpreting Manhood and more.
