Top Tips: (including reminders from Sheikh Asim Khan, London and Dr Sajid Umar, KSA)

1- Purify our intention for Allah alone.

2- Make a plan- The sahabah Radi Allahu anhum prepared for Ramadan months in advance. DON’T LOSE HOPE, you can renew your intention now and start an action plan. Maybe set yourself to read 5 verses a day of Qur’an and gradually increase. Be positive and be proactive! If you want to complete Qur’an in Ramadan, read 20 pages a day. And try to read the translation of Qur’an in your language.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “(Allah said), ‘Every good deed of Adam’s son is for him except fasting; it is for Me. and I shall reward (the fasting person) for it.’ Verily, the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better to Allah than the smell of musk.” [Sahih Bukhari]

2- Cut back on the greasy foods and unhealthy diet. Eat healthy, and balance your meals, with carbohydrates, fibre and protein. Add some healthy fats and dairy too. Moderation is key. Stick to the sunnah regarding food!

3-Practice self-restraint. Guard our tongues and limbs from wrongdoing.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet, and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not hurt (or insult) his neighbor; and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should entertain his guest generously.”Bukhari 

4-Be strong and grateful for Islam and the favour of witnessing Ramadan to get closer to Allah. We will have struggles, jobs, exams, tasks that we have to face with strength. Fasting will not hinder us, fasting sincerely for Allah will help us attain success in this life and the next.

5- Muslims are diverse, Allah created us in different colours and backgrounds, with different languages, so we may know one another. The honourable harbour Taqwa (God-conciousness/ awareness of Allah). We are from Adam and Eve (upon them be peace) at the end of the day, so let’s try to get together in Ramadan and revive the idea of community in Islam, which does not discriminate by race or other factors. Let us try to reunite our families too, for the sake of Allah.

6-Increase your prayers, not just quantity, but quality, learn about the Salah and the meanings of what you recite.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying regarding Ramadan, “Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.” [Sahih Bukhari]

7-Calculate your Zakaah (Zakat- obligatory poor-due charity, 2.5% of your wealth given each lunar year) and pay it in a timely manner, as best as you can. Zakaah is a primary pillar in Islam, which we must not neglect. For more on Zakaah, take a look https://www.nzf.org.uk/Knowledge 

8- Make sure to have the intention to fast (intend in your heart) at night well before the Fajr! Check out our posts on what to avoid in Ramadan and what breaks the fast, and general advice on Ramadan/fasting.

9-Download the most accurate prayer timetable in sha Allah, click here: https://t.me/PrayerTimesCalculatorBot/ 

10- Ease in, burn into your routine, don’t burn out.  So start small, maybe five pages a day to begin with of Qur’an and build up, if you haven’t read in a long time.

11- Focus on quality not just quantity. Focus on perfecting your tajweed/ reciting Qur’an correctly like the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him taught us. (CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION ON TAJWEED AND QUR’AN LESSONS)

12-Be productive, set realistic goals for yourself, based on your habits. So if you want to start giving more charity, first make sure you have done the obligatory Zakat, and then try to make little and often payments of sadaqah, or whatever you like, but measure it so you know when you are slacking.

13-Make a strategy/schedule for yourself. Be pragmatic, as the lockdown due to covid19 means we face different challenges being at home all day,  think constant distractions… Take note men, this is the life of many a housewife! Please be kind to each other, ladies help your husbands to make time with the family, men help your women around the home. If men are working, ladies advise the children to be considerate. If mum needs a break, husbands spend some time with the kids.

14-Set a time where the family sit and learn Islam, BALANCE is key.

15-Be optimistic, like our prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Yes covid19 will change the way we operate socially in Ramadan, but trust Allah and be strong, we will get through this together in sha Allah.

We remind ourselves before we remind you, our beloved, dearest readers. Jazakumallahu khairan.

May Allah, The Most Gracious Lord of all creation shower upon us His blessings, may He make us successful in this month and beyond, may He keep us sincere for Him alone, and may He help us adhere to the sunnah of His final prophet muhammad peace be upon him. And may Allah forgive all our sins, and grant us firmness on the guidance, may He reward us, and may He make us true believers, and those who truly worship and serve none but Him alone, The One, The Irresistable Creator, for He is The All-Powerful. May Allah grant us taqwa and nearness to Him and a high place in Jannat al firdaus with the prophets alayhimusalam. May Allah abundantly bless His final prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Ameen
