Faith can come in many different forms. Whether it is religious faith, faith in those we love or simply just faith in ourselves; all are vital and equally valid forms of faith.
However, for us here at Muslim Aid, faith is never more important than during Ramadan.
Ramadan 2017 is fast approaching, making this the perfect time to get back in touch with your faith and prepare for the month to come.
If you regularly find that your levels of motivation are low or that you are struggling to incorporate faith into your daily life, this is the perfect time to address these issues and reacquaint yourself with the importance of faith.
What is Faith?
At its core, faith is beyond just a mere feeling. It is a deep-rooted sense of peace, guidance, and acceptance; the knowledge that you are on the right path. Faith breeds hope, allowing us to dream and work towards a better future. Faith lives in the heart and soars with the spirit, untroubled by logic and reasoning.
Faith can’t be explained, but those who have faith can’t live without it.
Faith Brings Motivation
When you feel like giving up, faith is the little voice in the back of your mind, encouraging you to keep going and push on through. Motivation comes from faith, and it is motivation which allows us to be more successful, striving towards a brighter future.
Faith Banishes Fear
Similarly, faith also helps to banish negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, and nervousness. Feelings such as these are instantly driven away once you take the time to get back in touch with your faith – hope and faith are the positive emotions you need to improve your life for the better.
Faith Makes us Better People
With the solid presence of faith behind us, we are able to confidently move through life, creating the best possible lives for ourselves. Faith makes us kinder and more tolerant, encouraging us to carefully consider our words and actions and ensuring that we are always courteous to those around us.
This positivity also extends further beyond the boundaries of our immediate interactions, enabling us to support people in need around the world. Ramadan donations are especially important, as Ramadan is the perfect time to educate people about faith and send aid to vulnerable people during this holy time.
