This year, Ramadan will be upon us, and many of us are dreading the longest days we have fastedin our lives. In doing so, we have completely forgotten to be grateful for the spiritual buffet that hasbeen presented to us on a silver platter. Muhammad
E
said,
"When the month of Ramadan starts,the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained” 
 [Bukhari]. This one
hadith 
alone eliminates any excuses. However, added to the elimination of the
Shayateen 
are the extraordinary incentives to do good during this month. The Prophet
E
also said,
"Whoever fasted Ramadan with faith and in expectancy of reward, his previous sins are forgiven" 
 [Bukhari and Muslim].However, despairingly few Muslims avail this opportunity. Rather than improving their
adab 
,becoming regular in prayers, reading the
Qur'an 
and praying
qiyam 
, they spend the precious fewdays of this blessed month squabbling and aggressively scurrying through buffet lines, stuffingthemselves in the pursuit of
pakoras 
and
samosas 
. Rather than practicing the
hadith 
of theProphet
E
,
“none of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself” 
, theyscorn, and even curse, anyone who fills their plate before them. These people are fasting andfurious. It is because of this heedlessness that rather than wiping their slates clean, they are juststarving themselves meaninglessly.On the other end of the spectrum are those that acknowledge the golden opportunity in front ofthem and strive to become closer to Allah
I
. They realize that this is a time where rewards areabundant and it is much easier to reap the infinite bounties of Allah
I
. They emancipate theirhearts, control their anger, reflect critically, and arduously practice all the aspects of religion thatthat had neglected in the previous months; they do this openly and proudly, despite scrutiny fromtheir peers. These people too are fasting and furious; however, their fury and hunger are fixated onthe goal of
Jannah 
.However, even amongst these are a majority that, upon completion of the month of Ramadan, tossaside this temporary boost of
iman 
and go back to their usual carefree lives. While this potential isthere after any change a person makes in his habits, it is most pronounced in Ramadan. However,despite this trend, from both a psychological and Islamic perspective,
 
Ramadan is the perfect timeto create new habits. Every year, Allah
I
has given us 29 to 30 days to develop a new habit andmodern psychology corroborates this, stating that a new habit can take anywhere from twenty tosixty days to form.As well as issues directly pertaining to Ramadan, this issue of
Transcend 
contains inspirationalexperiences to motivate change, and self development tips on how to improve yourself during thisblessed month and throughout the whole year
inshAllah 
.Our goal in this issue is to provide clarity amidst confusion. We pray that we will all fill our hollowvessels with the colors of Allah
I
and truly make this a date to remember!
