Marhaban Ya Ramadhan!!
Nabi SAW said:”Every good deed of the child of Adam is incresed (in reward) from 10 to 700 times.” and Almighty Allah says:”Except fasting, for verily it is for me and I,Myself will reward it.” “The fasting person abstains from food and desire for my sake.” (Mishkaat Shareef). Nabi SAW said: “For the fasting person there are two occasions of joy-pleasure at the time of breaking the fast and at the time of meeting his Rabb (Sustainer).” (Mishkaat Shareef)
One of the most essential elements of preparing for the arrival of Ramadhan is to make the intention for preparation for verily “every action judged by it’s intention”(Hadith-Bukhari). The preparation begins the day you start practicing humility and patience and learn how to control your nafs (desires) and anger.
In the spirit of Ramadhaan, it is best to start preparing for the blessed month by performing actions that are rewarding and appreciated by our beautiful Allah SWT According to a Hadith, “If a person says, “SubhanaAllah”(Glory be to ALLAH) 100 times, a thousand good deeds are recorded for him and a thousand bad deeds are wiped away.”
To start preparing for the blessed month of Ramadhan, it is best if you start increasing your worship. This will allow you to adjust your routine for the arrival of Ramadhan. Increase all forms of Ibadah(worship) such Fasting,recitation of Qur’an, Zikr, Sadaqah(Charity) , Nafl (voluntary) Salaah etc
To adjust your body to fasting, it is best that you start fasting beforehand. You should define specific days for fasting. For example, if you fast every Monday and Thursday, you will be more fully prepared for Ramadhan making the adjustment much easier.
For individuals who have not prepared for reading and reciting Qur’aan during Ramadhan, Qur’an Kareem recitation while fasting becomes difficult. It is best if you start reading the Mubarak Qur’aan after Fajr salaah on a daily basis just to prepare for the Ramadhan spirit.
Ramadhan teaches us to adjust the way we lead our life. Therefore, before the arrival of Ramadhan, it is ideal if you start adjusting your sleeping habits. You should start off by going to bed early and rising early. If you are used to this routine, you will not feel sleepy and tired when Ramadhan arrives.
Ramadhaan is the ideal month to embark on your journey to fresh objectives. If you are a smoker and want to quit this habit, you should start off with this month. If you want to be an early riser, still Ramadhan is the perfect month for you. In essence, Ramadhan is the most blessed and rewarding month. Therefore, all Muslims should try their best prepare for this auspicious month of Ramadhan. Regular recitation of Qur’aan, voluntary charity and recitation and offering prayers will help you prepare for the Ramadhan spirit. Inshaa-Allah!
