So here we are, in 2012.
Many people talk about new year resolutions. Some want to buy a house, some want to change their cars, some want to get promoted, some want to get married. Ok, let's not go to that whole "getting married" thingy. I wouldn't want to fall into my own trap :p
As for me, my new year resolution is only one - to be a better Muslim.
What? Only one resolution?
Aha.. you must realise that being a better Muslim also means:
- Being a better daughter
- Being a better grand daughter
- Being a better sister
- Being a better best friend
- Being a better friend
- Being a better worker
- Being a better colleague
- Being a better knowledge seeker
- Being a better driver on the road
and the list can go on and on.. so it's actually not only one resolution.
You see, that is the beautiful thing about Islam.
It's not only about praying 5 times a day, fasting during Ramadhan and going for hajj.
It is so much more than that.
So let us all be better Muslims.
Let us strive for Allah's love and His blessing upon us.
May Allah be with us.
