To improve anything in life one must evaluate the past and make amendments for the future. This concept is applied in every aspect of life in this world, from business to education.

As Muslims we must also do the same. We find the Prophet (SAW) advising us to avoid being stung by the same snake hole’ – meaning not to commit the same mistakes and this will happen by reflecting upon the past. Similarly he said ‘there is no better intelligence than good planning’. They both point towards past reflection and future planning.

Some of the points of reflection and improvements

  • Sincerity to Allah – Do I worship for the pleasure of Allah alone? How was my Salah this year?
  • How often do I pray in the Masjid?
  • Do I serve the deen of Allah by volunteering for good causes? How is my relationship with parents and family?
  • Do I earn and eat halal?
  • How is my charity and spending in good causes?

Asking the above questions and making targets for improvements will definitely help a person to improve, by the will of Allah.
