A Quick Checklist For Ramdan Shareef


Gham-e-Madinah

Recommended Posts

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalamu 'Alaykum

 

1. Make a resolve to win the maximum favor of Allah by performing extra Voluntary

prayers (Nawafils), making frequent Dua and increased remembrance (Dhikr).

 

2. Try to recite some Holy Quran after every Prayer. In fact if you read 3-4 pages after

every Prayer you can easily finish the entire Quran in Ramadan!

 

3. Study the Tafseer ( commentary) every morning.

 

4. Invite a person you are not very close with or your relatives to your home for

Iftaar, at least once a week (Weekend). You will notice the blessings in your

relationships!

 

5. Bring life to your family! Everyday, try to conclude the fast with your family and

spend some quality time together to understand each other better.

 

6. Give gifts on Eid to at least 5 people: 2 to your family members, 2 to your good

friends, and 1 to a person whom you love purely for the sake of Allah. This is in

addition to normal 'Iddiya' to children.

 

7. Where applicable, make commitment to join Islamic study circles to learn more

about Islam and improve your own life.

 

8. Donate generously to the Masajid, Islamic organizations , and any where people

are in need or oppressed. "Because Ramadan, is a month of sharing!"

 

9. Share month of Ramadan and its teachings of peace and patience with your

colleagues at work, neighbors and relatives.

 

10. Sleep little, eat little! Make sure you do not defeat the purpose of fasting by

over-indulging in food and being lazy.

 

11. Seek the rare and oft-neglected rewards of the night better than other months (

Laylatul-Qadr / Shab-e-Qadr ).

 

12. Weep in private for the forgiveness of your sins: Ramadan is the month of

forgiveness and Allah's Mercy! It's never too late.

 

13. Learn to control your tongue and lower your gaze. Remember the Prophet's

(pbuh) warning that lying, backbiting, and a lustful gaze all violate the Ramadan

fast!

 

14. Encourage others to enjoin and love goodness, and to abandon everything that

Allah dislikes. Play the role of a Da'ee (one who invites to Allah) with zeal,

passion, and sympathy.

 

15. Experience the joy of Tahajjud prayers late at night and devote yourself purely

and fully to Allah in the Itikaf retreat during Mahe Ramadan.

 

16. For extra concerted effort, try to be off work for few last days of Ramadhan for

maximum Ibada. You never know you will be around next time around, so

maximise your time in Ibada.

 

17. Make an effort to reconcile with the people you are not on good terms with.

Forgive everyone and keep your heart clean.

 

18. In all your dhikr, do not forget your parents, your neighbors', relatives, dead

people and Mus lims at large including those fiy sabiliLLAH.

 

MAY ALLAH HELP US ALL IN OUR EFFORT TO EARN THE MAXIMUM DURING THIS HOLY MONTH SUCH THAT WE ARE ABLE TO TAKE THE DISCIPLINE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

 

Ameen................
