For a productive Ramadan, we have brought you the 5 tips that will help you in planning it successfully. We usually end up spending Ramadan just by limiting our activities to fasting. But, it's not up to here.

Productive Ramadan

Islam has special rewards for all the good deeds you perform in this blessed month.

5 tips for productive Ramadan:

Here is the to do list to plan a productive Ramadan. Let's do these five activities in the month of Ramadan & get the most out of it.

1. Don't eat & drink too much.

Eating too much is a common mistake made by many who fast during Ramadan.
Once it's time to eat, we eat like there is no tomorrow overloading our stomach until it's it difficult to move. This then makes us lazy and less productive. 

Keep in mind that Ramadan is about self-control, not self-indulgence. So let's try to stick to the prophetic rule on eating.

Productive eating in Ramadan

The prophetic rule of eating prescribes:

Fill our stomach with one-third food, one-third water and one-third breathing space.

2. Give charity daily. 

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was always generous but even more so during the month of Ramadan. 

The rewards for charity increased so much during Ramadan. That's why everyone is strongly advised who can to donate a little amount every single day during this month. 

The reward will be multiplied many times. This way you can also guarantee one thing; Your donation is on Laylatul Qadr, the night of power.

A person who donates only £10 on Laylatul Qadr will have the reward of donating £300,000 of charity. 

So, Don't miss it out!

3. Pray five times a day. 

During the month of Ramadan, you will find the masjid completely packed out during Taraweeh prayers. That's amazing. 

But then during the five daily prayers, you will notice the masjid nowhere near as packed.

Unfortunately, many people have mixed up their priorities. The Farz (Obligatory) 5 daily prayers have been put below the sunnah Taraweeh. Although nobody can deny the importance of the Taraweeh prayers. It comes with an abundance of rewards and blessings. The 5 daily prayers will always be greater and above all the sunnah or optional prayers. 

So, please do not neglect your obligatory activities in Ramadan.

4. Ramadan is the month of the holy Quran.

During Ramadan, many Muslims try to finish the Holy Quran as fast as possible. Some people finish reciting it 2, 3 or even 5 times. SubhanAllah as though it's a speeding competition. It is recited without any understanding or contemplation. Although there is always benefit (Spiritual) in reciting the verses of the Quran. 

But, there is greater benefit in reciting it with understanding because the purpose of the Quran is to guide mankind. And how can we be guided if we don't take time to understand the verses?

So, make this Ramadan... You truly connect with the Quran.

5. Attain Taqwa (God consciousness). 

The Quran prescribes fasting for the believers as:
Oh you who have believed decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you, so that you may attain Taqwa.

- The Holy Quran: 02, 183.

Hence the intent and effect of fasting as described in this verse are to acquire taqwa. Presence of taqwa helps protect a believer from committing sins and to overcome the nafs (desire). There is no equivalent English word for taqwa.

In Islamic terminology, taqwa refers to the state of consciousness where one constantly feels the presence of his Creator, obeys His command to attain his pleasure and avoid disobedience to him not only out of His fear...but also for the love Of Him.
