I am really excited about ramdan I am Inshallah going to make this ramadan the best of all . Alhamdullilah, our school changes its timings as ramadan starts .Our school normally starts at 8:45 am and in ramadan 8:00 am after praying fajr we read Quran for almost half an hour and then go to our school.

^^^ Same Sister :) Can't wait for Ramadan best time of month out of the whole year. Back to the question unfortunately the school times don't change so you have to get up early in the morning and do late night Tarabi, i don't know about everyone else but i find Allah gives you the strength to do it and as long as you eat and drink plenty of fluid before you start your fast inshallah you'll be fine :)

I'm also really excited for this Ramadan. I don't find waking up during Ramadan any different than at other times. I hope this Ramadan will go better than the previous ones insha'Allah.

p.s. As a reminder try to not to fill your stomaches at Iftaar.

Excellent advice, one which most of us sadly forget.
The only teeny thing about this month is that seeing as I was born on the 17th of Ramadhan, I know exactly what my real age is. Which happens to be a whole year older than if I went according to the Gregorian calender :ermm: On the other hand, I must have been a very blessed baby lol:statisfie
That aside, i can't wait for Ramadhan and its vast rewards. I wish it would hurry up a bit...
Thankfully, we've stretched our summer holidays so they end after Ramadhan, which means I should have more time for personal Ibadah with school and teaching out of the way:statisfie

Ramadan is about discipline amongst many other things, how you as a human being can take control of your body and your environment-- I don't find it different than regular days since I wake up that early anyway and then you get busied by the events of the day until it is break fast time- perhaps the only time one perceives a difference is on the weekend because you are trying to rest and not busy yourself with things so you are then made painfully aware of the hours.. in my humble opinion one should utilize that time to memorize Quran or help others in some way insha'Allah...

A friend posted this on fb so I thought I'd share it here with you all...


1.Eat, drink and be moderate
Almost all of us do it - once Iftar time hits, we just keep plowing food and drink into our mouths till it's hard to move afterwards. And those of us who do it know this is totally contrary to the spirit of Ramadan, through which we're supposed to learn self-control not self-indulgence. Let's try to stick to the Prophetic rule on eating: fill our stomachs with one-third food, one-third water and one-third breathing space, even in Ramadan.

2.Give a dollar a day in charity...or five or ten
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was always generous but even more so in Ramadan. Let's open our hearts and dig a little deeper in our wallets this year. Even less than a dollar a day adds up. Whatever you can give, it's the intention that counts.

3.Go to Tarawih prayers
Post-Iftar, the first urge is to sleep after an exhausting day. But try your best to head out to the mosque for Tarawih prayers. Praying alone is wonderful, but doing it in congregation is fantastic. The community spirit is part of Ramadan's blessings. Don't miss it this year. If going every day is not possible, try going at least one week.

4.Go on a technology diet
Even if you work in the IT industry, you can do this. Avoid checking personal email and surfing the web during your fast. After Iftar, instead of plopping yourself in front of the screen, go to Tarawih. The same goes for the television. The point is to try to give our full attention to spiritual elevation this month.

5.Read 5 minutes of Quran a day...just five, not more, not less
Even if you feel you've got absolutely no time, set a timer or the alarm on your cell phone and find a relatively quiet place. You can read the first page of the Quran you open or follow a sequence. The choice is yours. The point is simply to connect with God through His revelation in the month of the Quran.

6.Forgive everyone who has hurt you
Still got a festering wound from the fight with your friend last year? Still upset about something your spouse said during a heated argument? Or are you still bitter about the way your parents sometimes treated you as a kid? Let go of the anger and pain this Ramadan and forgive those who have hurt you. Forgiving someone is not only good for the body, but it's also great for the soul. And in Ramadan, ten days of which are devoted to Allah's forgiveness, shouldn't we lesser beings forgive too?

If you find it very difficult to forgive everyone, forgive at least three people.

The difference during ramadan at my office is that we are allowed to arrive at work an hour late or leave office an hour early because essentially we lose what is usually our lunch hour :)
although we still use it for sholat dhuhur and ashr anyway :)
