What is "Strive to Bring Alive"

The purpose of this column is to motivate and encourage everyone to make an attempt to bring alive the very simple actions that will be presented every two weeks. Insha-Allah by making these very easy actions part of our daily lives, we will benefit from the blessings of practising on these a’amaal and they will also become a stepping stone towards doing greater actions.
As a means of encouragement to others, and also to spur us ahead, a vote counter has been attached. The idea is that for two weeks every person reading this column should make an effort to practice on the ‘amal (action) presented. At the end of the two weeks, those who have practiced upon it for at least one week or more should vote “YES.” This will Insha-Allah encourage others also to do the same.

In many homes the radio is playing almost 24 hours a day. We are listening to Quraan, nazams, talks, speech contests, and quiz competitions. The tragedy is that these programs have now taken the place of our own personal recitation of the quraan, zikr and dua. Ramadaan is a month of the Quraan. Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammed Zakariyya Khandhelwi (rahimahullah) writes regarding the women of his household and the importance they gave to reciting the Quraan. He states that together with their house work, they managed to easily complete fifteen to twenty juz (paras) daily. Let us all try this Ramadaan to switch off all stations and increase our recitation of the Quraan, the zikr of the first kalimah and istighfaar. Some time daily should also be dedicated for dua.
