The month of Ramadan

In this fast pacing world, enjoying the holy month of Ramadan to its fullest may become difficulty. The burdens of our daily routine create hindrance in getting the most out of this month of blessings.

So, in this blog, we will list down some of the ways you may imply to enjoy the true spirit of this month.

1. Prioritize and Distribute Time:

Ramadan brings many changes in our lives. The three time meals are replaced by Sahoor-o-Aftar and the sleep schedule changes entirely. All this change of routine and schedule may become overwhelming if not managed properly.

Prioritize what is important and what is not. Now distribute time to the tasks with respect to their priority. For this purpose, a Ramadan planner may come in handy. The planner will help you list down all your tasks, making them easy to manage.

2. Pray Abundantly:

Ramadan provides us all to stock up on the good deeds as much as possible. Simple tasks like eating in Sahar-o-Aftar yield so much sawab for everyone involved, imagine how much sawab it would be to pray.

Make it a habit to pray abundantly in the month of Ramadan as it is a month of giving. Open your heart to Allah, the provider of all providers. Strive to Understand Ramadan, to understand what the true essence of this month is and what it means to embrace it fully.

As narrated in The Holy Quran:

And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad ﷺ) concerning Me, then surely I am near. I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he calls to Me.”

3. Give Sadaqah:

The month of Ramadan strives to make us mindful of the hardships of our brothers who are struggling financially. In this month, we fast to feel the pain of those who cannot get food in abundance, rather have to struggle for it daily.

So, make sure to give Sadaqah to those who need your help. Help them to enjoy the most of this month by helping them financially. This Sadaqah will not only help them but also you on the Day of Judgment.

As narrated by Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ:

“Sadaqah extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire” (Hadith, Tirmidhi).

He also said:

“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be their charity” (Hadith, Tirmidhi).

4. Spend Quality Time With Family:

Family and Familial values are ranked highly in Islam. It is very important to be a good family man in order to be a good Muslim. As Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ said:

“Of the dinar you spend as a contribution in Allah’s path, or to set free a slave, or as a sadaqa given to a needy, or to support your family, the one yielding the greatest reward is that which you spent on your family”.

Spend the magical times of Sahar and Aftar indulging in meaning full conversation with your family, pray together and help each other to become a better human and a good Muslim. Encourage children to learn more about Ramadan by telling them stories and Ayat which will inspire them.

Invite your loved ones to Aftar and share the blessings of this Holy month with those who matter. Rekindle relationships that are under some strain, rebuild broken ties, be the bigger person. As said:

“A man’s spending on his family is a deed of charity.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 4006]
