A habit I restarted this Ramadan was making up missed prayers. I rather shamefully haven’t always been very observant in my ibadah, and even when I was praying I didn’t make the effort to make up for any prayers I had missed. I had tried a couple of years back to fix this, but I lagged behind due to some mix of laziness and shame. Now I’m trying to get back on track to do so, and what better time than Ramadan? So I’ve started praying my missed prayers, in addition to the tarawih and sunnah prayers, and this a good part of my day is spent in qiyyam.
Where I’ve fallen short this month is in reading the Qur’an. I don’t expect to be able to complete 30 juz in a month, and my lack of fluency doesn’t help either. So I need to step up my efforts there by reading more regular, getting a teacher once again and learning Arabic so I’m not just mouthing the words.
I, like anybody else, am a sinful person and aware of my own shortcomings, but I pray that Allah accepts my good deeds and attempts to atone for my mistakes. Insya-Allah.
