Ramadan is on it’s way.. Prepare for it!

By Umm Bilal

Ramadan is the month of excitement for Muslims. It is the month of revelation of the Quran, the month of reading and reciting the whole Quran, the month of Tahajjud and the month of Tarawih prayers, of Sadaqah and Zakah-ul-Fitr.

No one can go anywhere without preparation, and no one invites a guest without preparing to welcome him/her. Similarly, to welcome Ramadan, the month of fasting, one has to prepare.

Tips for Preparing for Ramadan:

  1. Try to fast on Mondays and Thursdays as of today.
  2. Start reading the Quran everyday after Fajr prayers.
  3. Spend some time listening to recitations from the Quran.
  4. Train yourself to go bed early so that you do not miss the Fajr prayers.
  5. Keep yourself in a state of Wudu most of the time.
  6. Evaluate yourself each day before going to bed.
  7. Thank Allah for good deeds, and repent to Him for your mistakes and sins.
  8. Give yourself time alone, so that you can meditate, make dhikr and tasbeeh.
  9. Start giving Sadaqah each day, no matter how little. Make it a habit like eating and drinking.
  10. Spend more time reading Islamic books, especially the Quran, Seerah, Hadith, and Fiqh.
  11. Find time to help others with your wisdom, knowledge and talent.
