How to Try Your Best with Balance

The month of Ramadan pushed us to be the best versions of ourselves, but it’s difficult to maintain that effort throughout the entire year. Thankfully, this isn’t what Allah (swt) expects from us. Islam is meant to be easy, and Allah (swt) wants us to put forward our best effort. How can we try our best throughout the year without burning out?

Sh. Abdullah Oduro guides us through a balanced approach to trying our best in our relationship with our Creator.
