Building up Characteristics of Individual Greatness

Driven by our otherworldly convictions, we Muslims showed tenacious devotion, responsibility, and truthfulness for the entire month of Ramadan. We pushed to accomplish more in remuneration by setting and keeping to a discipline as a matter of course for the sequential 30 days. For the vast majority of us, dawdling turned into a non-issue. We got through actual strain through lengthy petitions, craving and thirst during the day, and little and hindered rest plans. With everything taken into account, we evaded minimal in getting out of our usual ranges of familiarity and however a positive mental disposition, concentration and self-inspiration, not briefly any of these burdens hindered us from achieving our otherworldly objectives.

In all honesty – what the majority of us showed for the entire month of Ramadan were characteristics expected to accomplish individual greatness. Individuals have achieved more, handled and settled the most troublesome issues, and become powerful pioneers by upholding these qualities of greatness. Why then, at that point, one miracles, do a larger part of Muslims neglect to accomplish similar degrees of greatness in different parts of their lives? For what reason is the situation of Muslims today just average, best case scenario? For what reason do such countless Muslims earnest and energetic in their requests, fasting and different customs wake up from the soul of Islam in different parts of their lives?

A gorge clearly exists between how we effectively move forward to succeed in our strict ceremonies

How we in any case decide not to do as such in that frame of mind of our lives. Since, supposing that we routinely lived by similar qualities of greatness, we would succeed more in our professions, learning and training, dealings with individuals, appreciate commendable family lives, have extraordinary wellbeing and sound connections, and decisively work on all parts of our lives. In the event that every single one of us did their part to head toward greatness, the situation of Muslims the world over will be far superior to what it is today.

The response to this “distinction” lies somewhere down to us and is generally credited to our convictions. Our convictions imbued in our mind, whether profound etc., give us sensations of sureness and drive us to make the right moves. In this way, while the strength of our profound convictions drives us to make the right moves and thusly to succeed on profound fronts (one proof of which we found in Ramadan), absence of such strength in convictions connected with different parts of our lives holds us back from pushing ahead. In this manner, when we hold feeble convictions (or none by any stretch of the imagination) connected with our ideal activities, we just do the exceptionally negligible to scrape by – a long ways based on what is expected to succeed in those areas. Subsequently, we battle in our connections, have settle for the status quo of schooling, seek after unremarkable expert vocations, battle with keeping a sound way of life, etc.

Convictions impel us to make a move that we in any case would battle with

For instance, what number of chain smokers do you are aware of who can stop smoking for quite a long time during Ramadan, which they can’t do in any case? What number of ladies and grooms do you are aware of who had the option to get in shape half a month prior to their wedding that they in any case couldn’t do prior? What number of cardiovascular patients do you are aware of who had the option to change their eating routine plans and solid ways of life forever after they got through a serious coronary episode? In every single such case, something alters in their perspectives that make them make an undeniable move as a general rule. That is the force of convictions.

In evolving ways of behaving, constraining oneself to act without accepting turns out just for the present moment. Might you at any point review how frequently have you constrained yourself to start following through with something but returned to your former approach to getting things done? How often have you constrained your kids to do something just to see no adjustment of their way of behaving for the long run? Quran shows us too that essentially the demonstration of petitioning God for instance means close to nothing except if one is grounded in the right convictions. Think about this stanza in the Quran:

Along these lines, assuming you have neglected to see specific outcomes in any part of your life that is on the grounds that you should address your basic convictions connected with what you have been attempting to change. Peruse my article, “Shaping of Convictions.” Basically compelling yourself to represent the second can get you just up to this point.
