Ramadan is almost here, and it is the most awaited month for all Muslims.
As we all know, Ramadan isn’t just a month to abstain from food and drink, though it is one of the conditions of fasting it is also a way for us to become more mindful of the actions that we commit on a daily basis.
In today’s post, I’m including some tips on how to make the most of your Ramadan.
1) Understand Quran by Reading the Tafseer
The Qur’an is the words of Allah swt, which our Creator sent to us as a guide. Therefore, it is important to understand what you are reciting. Seeking knowledge is one of the highest forms of worship. This blessed month of Ramadan, try to increase your knowledge this blessed month and study the explanation of the Qur’an.
2) Feed the Fasting
This Ramadan, when the dusk adhan rings out, most of us find relief from our fast in a plentiful iftar. However, for many this hunger doesn’t end. One in nine people will go to bed on an empty stomach this Ramadan.
This Ramadan, let’s obtain reward by feeding those who are fasting.
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.”
3) Build Broken Ties
Forgive each other and start your relationships anew. Make effort to reach out to your relatives that you haven’t seen in a long time.
Allah swt has promised to keep good relations with those who keep good relations with their family members.
4) Taraweeh Prayers
Taraweeh prayer is one of the remarkable specialties of Ramadan nights.
This month a Ramadan, let’s try to attend as many Taraweeh prayers as possible. It is only during this blessed month that you will get such an opportunity. If you have missed a few nights, make sure to attend the closing nights so you can benefit from the Dua’s made at the end by the Imam.
Finally, in this blessed month that Allah swt has allowed us to witness once again, let us make a firm resolution that we will do more to learn about Islam and take from the inheritance left to us by our Prophet. Together, let us make Dua for the thousands of Muslims who have passed away this year without witnessing Ramadan.
Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslim brothers and sisters.
