Things You Should Do It More In Ramadan
are regular things that all Muslims do them on a daily basis; but this must be much more during the Holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan is the best spiritual month of the year; where you can recharge your faith and develop your piety for the entire year.
Pray more Sunnah praying
“Allah will build house in Jannah for whoever is diligent in observing 12 sunnah rakat (as follows) 4 rakat before and 2 after Dhur, 2 after the Maghrib, 2 after Ishaa, and 2 before Fajr.”
When Ramadan starts, that’s mean the month of blessings just begin, and there are so many extra blessings we can attain and praying our voluntary prayers before and/or after our obligatory salaat is an easy way to gain a lot of these blessings. All we need just some extra time every single day. So if we give ourselves the time to pray these extra salaat for this month, then during the rest of months, it would become like second nature to us. Make this a habit, and you would soon feel incomplete in your salaat without your voluntary prayers, and feel so much more spiritual when you complete them; not to mention, your blessings would be increasing and you would feel more accomplished.
Read Quran daily
Ramadan is the perfect opportunity for all of us to develop our daily routine, and we can make it by reading the Holy Quran as a part of our daily lifestyle. You will be rewarded 10 times for every letter you read. This prize basically illustrates the weight of the Quran in terms of where it should be in your life. So, if you read one part of the Holy Quran each day, by the end of Ramadan month, you would have completed the entire Quran.
Asking Allah to forgive ALL Muslims
Real Muslims not just ask the forgiveness for himself only; but always when he/she asking Allah for forgiveness they ask Allah to forgive ALL live and dead Muslims too.
Do not engage in unnecessary talk
If someone approaches you and engages in non-constructive talk; or want to start gossiping or backbiting then you say ‘I am fasting; I am fasting’ and stop it in its tracks. This is a good way to cleanse your thoughts as well. Think positively and talk positively.
Engage in Duaa and Remembrance of Allah
It’s the best time of the year to turn back to Allah throughout the Ramadan days, every day. Make duaa: remember God blessings, repent and ask forgiveness for your shortcomings, seek guidance for decisions in your life, ask for mercy and forgiveness for all of your loved ones, and more. you can make your Duaa by your own language, in your own words, or you can turn to some duaa samples from the Quran and Sunnah.
Give extra charity
Prophet Muhammad has said: that even a smile is charity. All little things would add up and would be a great source of your blessings. Further, the satisfaction you will get from being kind; and charitable to others would be a fulfilling experience; and it will get back to you in another time according to God choice. Plus you should find a way every day to give extra charity. Feel free to choose your charity work even if it was a dollar a day because the possibilities for charity are limitless.
Increase your remembrance of Allah
“O You who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance”
SubhanAllahwabihamdihi SubhanAllah the greatest (“I praise Allah (or All praise if to Allah) above all attributes that do not suit His Majesty.”)
These few great simple words for remembrance you can use them every where while you’re in the car going to work, or in the check-out line at the grocery. Any and all free time could be the vehicle you use to develop your own remembrance of Allah.
Visiting a sick Muslim
“There is no Muslim who visits a sick Muslim early in the morning; but 70 thousand angles send blessings upon him until evening comes; and if he visits him in the evening, 70 thousand angles send blessings upon him until morning comes; and he will have a garden in paradise.”
One of best good things in all Muslims is visiting his Muslim brother while he’s sick; it’s like great support to him in better or worse.
Attend lectures and events in the Mosque
“Whoever to the mosque not desires except to learn; or teach what is good has the reward of a pilgrim who completed his Hajj”.
Just giving the great knowledge to someone doesn’t have it; or don’t know anything about this knowledge to teach each other.
Reconnect with your relatives and old friends
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Anyone who wants to have his provision expanded; and his term of life prolonged should maintain ties of kinship.”
Another reason why a lot of Muslims are looking forward to the blessed month of Ramadan is the ability to rekindle with your relatives; and old friendships over iftar ?
There are also various options that you and your mates can choose from – from a good old hearty meal at the mosque to various irresistible bazaar goodies.
When you are jam-packed with events and work commitments throughout the year; it sure feels nice to kick back and have a tea (and dates) with your relatives and old buddies.
