A Quick Preparation For Ramadan

  1. Start reading Quran daily after Solat al-Fajr.
  2. Spend some time listening to recitations from al-Quran.
  3. Train yourself to go bed early so that you can wake up for Solat al-Fajr.
  4. Keep yourself in state of Wuduk (Ablution) most of the time.
  5. Evaluate yourself daily before going bed.
  6. Thank Allah for good deeds and repent to Him for your mistakes and sins.
  7. Start giving Sadaqah daily no matter how little. Make it a habit like eating and drinking.
  8. Find time to pray extras such as Tahajjud prayers.
  9. Spend more time to read Islamic books especially the Quran, Hadith and Fiqh.
  10. Find time to help others with your wisdom, knowledge and other talent.
  11. Try to write articles on Islam for Muslims as well as for non-Muslim.
  12. Associate with Muslim scholars/ulama or other pious so that you may learn from them.
  13. Train yourself to do good, render free service to others to seek the pleasure of Allah.
What To Avoid
  1. Avoid/reduce watching TV, instead spend more time reading the Quran and other Islamic literature.
  2. Avoid looking at unlawful picture whether magazines, department store catalog or otherwise.
  3. Spend free time in Masjid, Islamic organizations, make that a daily habit.
  4. If you smoke, try to reduce daily usage, otherwise Ramadan will be very difficult for you o observe.
  5. If you have friends who do not practice the teaching of Islam, try to avoid socializing with them.
  6. If you travel a lot on business, try to do more local business so you can be more closer to your family and community.
  7. If you are used to staying up till midnight, try to go to bed earlier so that you will be able to wake up early for Solat al-Fajr and Tahajjud prayers as well.
To prepare ourselves before the month of Ramadan arrives is far better than waiting till it comes.
To prepare ourselves for anything in life is a sign of wisdom and maturity.
No one is assured of living one day more, tomorrow may not come.
So hurry and benefit from blessings and rewards from Allah.

Remember

"Time is not money or gold,
it is life itself and is limited.
You must begin to appreciate
every moment of your life and
always strive to make the best use of it!"

A Quick Checklist
  1. Make a resolve to win the maximum favor of Allah by performing extra voluntary of prayers (Nawaafil), making frequent Doa and increased remembrance (Zikir).
  2. Try to recite some Quran after every prayer. Infact, if you read 3-4 times pagers after every prayers, you can easily finish the entire Quran in Ramadan.
  3. Study the Tafsir (commentary) every morning.
  4. Invite a person you are not very close with or your relatives to your home for Iftar, 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 gift on Eid to at least 5 peoples: 2 to your family members, 2 to your good friends and 1 to a person whom you love purely for the sake of Allah.
  7. Make commitment to join Islamic study circles to learn more about Islam and improve your own life.
  8. Donate generously to theMasjid, Islamic organizations and any way peoples are in need or opressed because "Ramadan is a month of sharing!"
  9. Share month of Ramadan and its teachings of peace and patience with your neighbours.
  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-negleted rewards of the night better than 1000 months (Lailatul-Qadar)
  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 tougue and lower your gaze. Remember the Prophet's warning that lying, backbiting and lustful gaze all violate the Ramadan fast!
  14. Encourage others to enjoin and love goodness and to abandon everything that Allah dislike.
  15. Play the role of Da'i (the person who invite to Allah) with zeal, passion and sympathy.
  16. Experience the joy of Tahajjud prayers late at night and devote yourself purely and fully to Allah in the Iktikaf retreat during the last 10 days of Ramadan.
Continue the above practice till next Ramadan and so on...
