Today I was reminded by my teacher that taqwa is to be acquired, which in turn gives birth to hikmah (the wisdom to do the right thing at the right time and place) which helps develop the furqan (the ability to differentiate between right and wrong) and this all increases a believer in guidance. All this is a sheer blessing from Allah (subhanahu wa taa’la). Therefore, we must strive to acquire taqwa by enriching our soul.
This is what we should aim to focus on this Ramadan; instead of being focused on enriching our bodies we need to be focused on enriching our souls in sha Allah.
