As the sky fades into banners of yellow, orange, and red, the initial seconds of sunset bring to the soul an indescribable happiness.

Not a happiness that the fast is over, but happiness for another reason.

The Prophet Muhammad described these moments by saying:

The fasting person has two kinds of happiness: a happiness when he breaks his fast and a happiness when he meets his Lord. (Al-Bukhari)

One of the ways to be ready or to prepare for an endeavor is to keep in sight the end goal. The end goal reminds us of the bigger picture. It allows us to focus on the goal itself and not allow the challenges of the process to overwhelm us.

In the previously quoted hadith, the Prophet Muhammad lays down the minor and major goals of Ramadan. The pursuit of these goals serves as the ideal way to prepare for Ramadan.

The daily goal or the minor goal is to find happiness at the end of the fast. The major goal is to find happiness at the end of life’s mission- when one meets Allah...
