Ramadan: Balancing Our Body, Soul, and Mind

Ramadan: Balancing Our Body, Soul, and Mind

Ramadan
Ramadan Mubarak from us!

What do we need to prepare for the upcoming Ramadan?

Balancing your Body, Soul, and Mind

Ramadan will make your busy life becomes busier. Schedule for Suhoor meal, commitments for work, family, fasting, and night prayers, and of course finding couple hours of sleep in time between. You need to adjust your schedule! More importantly, you need to adjust yourself, your body, soul, and mind, to be in balance.

Identify your Body Needs

The first thing you need to be aware of is your health. You need to identify your personal health condition. If this is your first time fasting in Ramadan, you might want to consider your nutrition to be in balance. Health, in this case, is not necessarily your ultimate goal, but a necessary means for your spiritual and worldly success, especially in the month of Ramadan. Make sure you have identified your body needs. If it needed, you can consult your health problem to a doctor or dietitian.

Set up your Goals

The second thing you need to do is set up your personal goal. Ramadan is the month of blessings and the month of change. In this month you can prepare your soul in full contemplation through the act of deeds or do Islamic study.

You can set your small-personal goal, it can be small good deeds, it can be surah memorization, or maybe learning in-depth Tafseer of the Quran. But remember, all of these personal goals need to be clear and specific so you can evaluate your progress from time to time. You can use several apps to do so, there is a lot of Muslim apps that can help you to achieve these goals.

Mastering your Mind

The third thing is to master your mind. Food ultimately has power over since it gives you amounts of energy, makes you more active and productive, and therefore you can perform better. Right? We choose our foods by ourselves, etc, as we mentioned earlier about balancing your nutrition. In the month of Ramadan, we can’t eat any food on daylight, although we have the power to choose to eat, right? It is because our mind told us not do so.

Our body or stomach to be precise is telling us that we are hungry, but our mind says, “NO” because we are in the middle of fasting. Our mind has the power to choose. This is what makes Ramadan or fasting important because it helps us to master our mind. The impact of all of this mind-mastery is we will become a better person because we choose to become one. It will help us to control our greed, lust, and desire, we control all of them within our mind.

Having said all of that, on behalf of Halal XYZ Taiwan members, we would like to say, “Ramadan Mubarak!” May Allah gave us blessings in this month of forgiveness.

PS: We include prayer timetable during the month of Ramadan from Chinese Muslim Association. Feel free to use! 🙂
