Nafs Hack: Zhikr in Your Daily Routine
Assalamu alaikum. My name is Sana Mahmood, and for my Nafs Hack, I’m going to be talking about how to bring zhikr into your daily routine.
We live in a fast paced society, and it can get really tough to slow down and remember Allah (SWT), especially in times when we’re not praying. So, while I’m commuting or if I’m cooking, while I’m doing some of these mindless tasks, I like to do my zhikr.
As I do my zhikr, I am able to really reflect upon my day. I’m able to reflect about my nafs, the state of my heart. In those moments, I’m really able to see where my heart is and how it really needs to grow or the action items that I need to be taking in order for it to continue growing the way that I want it to.
So, this Ramadan, try to pick a daily task, whether that’s preparing for iftar or commuting home, and really try to remember Allah (SWT) in your zhikr and reflect upon the state of your heart.
