Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth holy month of the Islamic calendar. This is a significant month in the Islamic calendar, and Muslims around the world will be ready to fast in this holy month. It is the month of blessing. In this month Muslims don’t easy after sunrise till sunset. In this time they pray to Allah. They offer prayers. In the month of Ramadan, the blessing of Allah Almighty becomes 10 times double. People give charity to the poor so that they can also do fast in this month.

Ramadan is the month in which Muslims do good deeds. This is the month of spiritual contemplation, personal growth, and increased dedication and worship. It is the month in which Allah Almighty opens the gate of heaven (Jannat) and closes the door of hell (Dozakh). The blessing of Allah Almighty is revealed to everyone who can fast in this month. Muslims who can fast this month for the sake of ALLAH Almighty, Allah bless them with Eid after the month of Ramadan which is the gift of Allah to the Muslim who can fast.

Prepare for Ramadan in advance.

We should start preparing and aim and finish our worldly tasks before Ramadan or, if possible, defer and delay them. Until after Ramadan, allowing us to devote as much time as we need to ‘ibadah (worship) during Ramazan.

Every day of Ramazan should be planned.

We should prepare not only for the month of Ramadan but also for the twenty-four hours of each day of Ramadan. For example, we should set aside a certain amount of time each day to read Islamic books. Recite the Holy Quran, perform dhikr (recitation of Allah), and other acts of worship. This does not imply that we plan for a full day of prayer, since this is technically impossible. The aim of this mental and practical planning is to genuinely free ourselves from worldly activities and get the benefit from Ramadan as a time of calm, meditation, sincerity, reflection, and worship by freeing ourselves from other activities of our daily life.

Self-discipline

During Ramadhan, most people are aware that they should avoid eating, drinking, and having sexual intercourse with their spouse during the day. However, obedience must be established in order to do good deeds and avoid deeds that will bring Allah’s displeasure. That was a simple type of discipline that needed to be established, but one also needed discipline in following a specific Ramadhan routine or schedule. For a person, this would be a life-changing event. They rise for suhoor, but they also pray Tahajjud at the same time. Recite a few verses from the Quran. They consume food. When you’re waiting for Salah, make dua. They recite Fajr. Create zikr and recite the Quran. They will take a break if they need to.

 

The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Qur’ān was revealed as guidance for mankind, and as clear signs that show the right way and distinguish between right and wrong. So those of you who witness the month must fast in it. But the one who is sick, or is on a journey (should fast) as much from other days (as he missed). Allah intends (to provide) ease for you and does not intend (to create) hardship for you. All this is so that you may complete the number (of fasts as prescribed) and proclaim the Takbīr of Allah for having guided you, and (so) that you may be grateful.

Surah Al-Baqarah (2:185)
