As summer is starting, we often find ourselves loafing around the house and not using our time effectively. We think to ourselves, I have worked so hard all year, just let me relax. But in reality, now is the time to really do all the things you enjoy and give back to your community. I encourage all of you to find something that you can do that is beneficial for not only yourself but for the people around you. When you find a chore or job that you really enjoy, it is no longer a chore, it as an opportunity, a chance to do something great. Ramadan is in a week. We will all be tired and sore throughout the days, but it is all a reminder of how fortunate we really are. Help out around the house or go volunteer downtown. Not only will you feel good in your own eyes, but in the eyes of Allah (SWT).
