This month brings so much uncertainty with it. I know I’m not the only one that feels this way. Many women have posted about not feeling ready for this month. What does that mean? How do we get ready for a month like this? I mean isn’t that the whole point of this month. We are not ever ready. This month is supposed to make us into what we are not. we are not ever “ready” we are not ever prepared to face our demons. That is the whole problem.
Fighting that which is supposed to be hard. Fighting the fight of our lives. It’s supposed to difficult and heart wrenching at times. Those who say it’s easy and fulfilling to face all the hard parts are either lying to themselves or to you. Let yourself feel all those difficult and conflicting feelings.
That’s what this month is there for; It’s to teach us, train us. It’s there to help us see the difficult truths about ourselves and about others around us. There is nothing easy about this month and its okay if it doesn’t come easy for you. Its not supposed to come easy. No training, no lessons come easy. If it’s coming easy then maybe you are not gaining as much from it as you are supposed to. Ramadan is a hard and difficult look at oneself. This month is about exploring a part of oneself that probably stays hidden all year long.
Also, if your true self doesn’t show itself in the same way that it does for other people that’s okay too. Everyone is different. Everyone’s connection to Allah and how they access that connection is different as well. Just as long as you are trying. It’s important that we give ourselves the time and the forgiveness that we deserve.
It’s important that we don’t get caught up in just the ritual of it all. It’s important that we stop and think about the truth, and the guidance that’s been provided and go from there.
We give up because up because we’ve been lied to about what the benefits and the rewards of Ramadan look like. The truth looks different for everyone. The truth is, no one can speak for me or for you. Only you know your truth so don’t let anyone else tell you how you should feel about today or tomorrow or the day after. Define your own way, define your own connection with this month and the days ahead.
Your spiritual connection will depend on your physical, mental and emotional state. Don’t let anyone else be the judge of any of that. Learn your limitations; be confident that your Allah knows you and that is enough. You are enough. What you are doing in your full capacity is enough. That is all that’s asked of you. The rest won’t come easy because this is the real world, however, you can take comfort in the knowledge that things will gradually fall into place.
