In the month of Ramadan, we are required to control our temper to the point where the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that if somebody tries to engage, you say in Nimrod saw imminent, I'm sorry, I cannot engage you because I'm fasted. What this is teaching us His discipline, it's teaching us control. And the point is that if we are able to regulate our emotions, if you are able to regulate ourselves in the month of Ramadan, definitely we can regulate ourselves out of the month of Ramadan. Also, Stephen Covey, in his book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People mentions that between a stimulus, and a reaction is a window period, which a person has, we
can decide how to react, and how to respond. So let's take an example. At a time of Soho, your son or your daughter spilled coffee onto your Garmin,
you have one of two choices. Either you get upset, and for the rest of the day, you're going to be upset, you're going to walk into Office also upset. And it's almost like this call today for you. Because you had your special Garmin, your special attire for the day, you neatened up your grooming up, and you were just about to leave the house and this happen. That's scenario number one. You take the same same scenario with a different twist to it. The coffee spills onto your garment. But you don't get upset. You know that you can't do anything about it. So you go out with change, you put on a new attire and you leave the house, what will be the difference? You will walk out happy, you will
walk out without any resentment and you will be less angry, you will not get upset and you'll have a good pleasant day for the rest of the day. So see, this is what Stephen Covey is saying that between a stimulus and a reaction is a window period that you have where you can choose to react responsibly
