Mission #26 Monday: Warm Your Home

Asalaamu alaikum ya akhawaati,

We’re getting close to Ramadan! Today is the day to swish and swipe those bathrooms, run a quick feather duster across the furniture, sweep and vacuum. No more than 5 to 10 minutes in each room! Just a quick maintenance clean.

Do not stress and panic. Grab window cleaner, paper towels, the vacuum cleaner, a feather duster or rag and the broom. Just go go go! Set a timer for no more than 10 minutes as you enter a room. Only do the main living areas of your home. The bathrooms, the living room, dining room, your bedroom and kitchen.

Do not allow yourself to get sidetracked. Just swish, swipe, dust, vacuum and sweep. That is it!!!! After you’re finished, light a candle or a burning oil. This will really make your home feel warm and ready for Ramadan.

We’re FLYing!!

*A note to those of you familiar with FlyLady terms: Because the word Blessing has the meaning of ‘worship’, and we know that we do not worship anything other than Allah subhana wa ta’aala, I have changed the term ‘Weekly Home Blessing’ to the ‘Weekly Home Warming’ in order to avoid any reference to shirk.

Mission #27 Tuesday: Review Menu and Supplies

Asalaamu alaikum ya akhawaati,

Today is the day to check your supplies and make sure you have everything you need. Take this time to review your menus, meal plans and double check the pantry and fridge. Make sure you have the spices and extracts you need for any dish you don’t prepare on a regular basis.

Finalize any on-line ordering that you haven’t done. Don’t get sidetracked by any special deals – stick to your budget!

Mission #28 Wednesday: 15 Minutes in the Kitchen

Asalaamu alaikum ya akhawaati,

Alhamdulillah we’re almost there. Just a few days left before Ramadan.

We all know that having a clean and organized kitchen makes it much easier to prepare meals for Suhoor and Iftar. So take advantage of this time to get those pots and pans organized, spices sorted, canned goods arranged.

Remember the Flyladay tip to set the timer for 15 minutes in order to avoid feeling overwhelmed. At the end of each 15 minute interval you will be amazed and proud of how much you have accomplished.

Mission #29 Thursday: A Little Wrapping

Asalaamu alaikum ya akhawaati,

Inshaa Allah your on-line orders have arrived by now, so this is the time to sort the items you are planning on giving to your family, friends, or relatives. Take this time to review your gift list and see what items need to be mailed – and what still needs to be picked up. Remember don’t pick up any extras if it doesn’t fit into your budget. Gifts are fun, but the point of Ramadan is still worshiping our Creator not going into debt.

If you are mailing items, label them with their addresses now. The longer you wait, the more likely these items won’t get mailed on time.

Check your Ramadan Control Journal for your list of deadlines, which should include your mailing dates so you don’t miss them, inshaa Allah!

Mission #30 Friday: Check Your Budget

Asalaamu alaikum ya akhawaati,

Inshaa Allah one or two days from now will be the first day of Ramadan. Hopefully you have completed all of the missions and are ready to begin a successful month of fasting.

Take this time to contemplate over any unaddressed issues you would like to resolve before this blessed month begins. This may be a spiritual issue or an organizational issue. Either way, take a few minutes to decide how it should be resolved and EXECUTE!

Remember to refer to your Ramadan Control Journal for Menus, Recipes, and Travel plans. Inshaa Allah this will be one of the best Ramadan’s ever now that you are organized and focused.

May Allah increase you in all that is good while making your intention for the fast solely to please Him. Ameen.
