Begin the day and the week on the 'Right Intention'.
In Islam actions come from intentions and each person will have what s/he intended (That is a hadith which i just summarised in my own quick words).
Here's the thing though.
In the West we have become accustomed to living in a Matrix.
We go to work all week and then weekend we party and then we have Monday Blues.
Who created this Monday Blues concept?
Each day we wake alive is another day for us to ask for Allah's forgiveness. His mercy and His help.
We ask Him (swt) in each prayer; 'Guide us to the straight path' yet we have Monday Blues?
We as Muslims need to snap out of this! And yes we can.
Monday is also a Sunnah fast day - so fast.
Surround yourself with good friends, books, articles - all things which will uplift your soul and help you - especially if you have an emaan low.
This doesn't mean that we don't think about others who are being oppressed in the world - however, honestly, how can we help them if we need help? I mean if we are low on emaan or if we are negative then how can we help our Ummah.
Helping those oppressed is not just through monetary means but also by being strong Muslims.
Eats well. Sleep well. Read well. Be well.
If you are well then insha'Allah you can help others also.
And then if you are down others can help you also.
That's the way it works.
So no more Monday Blues - let's make our moments count as each moment is our only moment - and this should be a sufficient reminder for us.
Have a blessed week ahead and let me know what you've got planned! :)
