Ramadan: Time for new habits

According to a study, it takes 21 days for your brain to like a new habit. And 66 days to change permanently.

So take a chance during this Ramadan to develop new habits and throw our old (bad) ones. Starting from punctuality (pray on time), focus (khusyuk in solah), generosity (sadaqah), steadfastness, avoiding smoking, cursing, backbiting and many more.

Continue for some more time even after Ramadan, because we are Rabbaniyyin (worshipers of Allah), not Ramadaniyyin (worshipers of Ramadan), and we'll manage to get new habits insya Allah.

We are what we repeatedly do. After all, bad habits are like a comfortable bed; easy to get into, but hard to get out of.

Happy fasting! ;)
