This Youtube video from One Path Network advocates continued worship at home during the month of Ramadan. The speaker explains the need to encourage family competition in devotion, prayer and Quran recitation at home during the pandemic lockdown as a partial replacement of meeting in a congregation in a Masjid.


Have you ever wondered why is easy for Muslim to fast in the Ramadan? It is extremely difficult to fast during any other time of the year. Have you ever wondered why it is easy to pray to Allah during Ramadan? It’s almost impossible to get up after isyak any other time of the year. The main reason why this happens is the fact these actually do become easy in Ramadan. Why? One of the reasons is simple, it’s because everyone else around us is doing it. The mere sight of seeing people around excelling good deeds, motivates us and indirectly encourages us to do better. The thought that 1.8 billion people are fasting alongside me today makes fasting easier. The side of a young boy or the elderly man amongst hundreds of others in the Masjid going strong …. is giving you a major motivation to continue. The thought of everyone around you pacing through the Quran is giving your brain indication to keep going. It’s the blessing of congregation, and it’s a concept that has long been understood when it comes to why Ramadan is so empowering. It’s the month to bring Muslims together from all around the world, all competing together, to obtain the love, the mercy and the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. Yet as beautiful and unique as this concept is in 2020 or 1441 hijri, this concept is no more. Yet as sad as this feels, we can’t let it bring us down.

Yes, we are hit hard by losing to … blessing, we have to minimize our losses. And the best way we can do this is by replicating this jamaat in our home and recreating our environment of motivation. Gather your family around and do your good deeds together, pray together, read Quran together, perform your afkar and learn about your faith together. Compete among one another to perform the most deed to subhanahu wa ta'ala states in the Quran. “So, all race to (all that is) which is good”. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala also says “Race toward your Lord and toward Paradise.” Race among one another and compete to really drive the motivation spirit toward your family, so be sure to keep up the positive attitude, and be sure to plant the seeds of motivation to all around you, and know with certainty that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala wants to see how you respond and how we respond how we push ourselves in worship this circumstance. We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to accept from us all.
