Asalamu'Alaikum to my muslim readers, this post would be mainly aimed to you guys, but to those who are curious and just want to read this post, then go ahead. I hope this benefits to those who going through the holy month of Ramadhan. 

So it's 5 days into Ramadhan and so far for me, Alhumdulillah it is going well, heat is a struggle, but besides that Ramadhan is going soo well,. How about you guys, are you having another struggle? How is Ramadhan for you so far? , Now this may be quite late to post, since I should have posted it in the beginning, but its better late than never right? So I will be telling you guys some of my tips for Ramadhan.

1. Set 1 or 2 missions, and work hard on it to fulfill it. For example, if you plan on to stop using bad language, then make sure you try your very best to stop. I know it won't happen straight away, so let it decrease gradually, and hopefully by the end of Ramadhan you would have reached your aim.

2. Ramadhan is a month of forgiveness to Allah, so don't forget to always make dua to Allah, and ask for forgiveness. Don't just do it once, keep it up for the 30 days. 

3. Never miss suhoor/sehri. This is the most important meal of the day because it sets you for the rest of the day. Don't eat heavy oily food, but instead have healthy and light food, for example fruits, yogurts etc. Things that will provide fuel for you throughout the whole day. 

4. Ibadah - Allah has created us to worship him only, so pray your namaaz on time, because once you've prayed it you won't have to worry about it getting done. Also take out at least 1-2 hours of your day in praying the holy Quran. 

5. Plan your day out the night before, and note them down in a journal. Then the next day, start your day of by doing one task at a time. Don't multitask because that won't produce a great results. By doing them one at at time, you are focused in it and will produce a better result. 

6. Plan your day around the salah times, not the other way round, as praying your salah is more important. 

7. Take a nap after Zuhr namaaz, as there is a large gap between Zuhr and Asr. However don't take a large nap, as Ramadhan is a month of being productive, and worshiping Allah. 

8. Break your fast with something simple, like Dates and Milk, or Dates and Water. 

9. Do not overeat for iftaar, as it could cause weight gain.

10. Try to keep hydrated during the period when not fasting.

11. Make loads, and loads, and loads of dua. Remember the poor and needy people around the world, who face many problems every day for no reason at all. 

12. Do a lot of Dhikr too!

13. Give and help the poor & needy.

14. If you love reading, then spend some time reading and learning about the prophet's or Islamic knowledge. This way you will learn more about Islam, and feel closer to your religion, Also it will inspire to becomes a better Muslim.

15. Stay away from sins. Ramadhan is a month for you to make a change, and become a better Muslim. So don't get involved in gossips, backbiting, false actions, listening to music etc. You don't want to be doing more sins in this blessed month.

16. Use your time wisely.

17. Ask for forgiveness, and forgive those who have wronged you. 

18. It's never to late to do good deeds. 

19. Social Media - I know for this generation social media is a big thing for teenagers, and young adults. Even myself. But during Ramadhan try not to go on it too much. I'm not saying don't use it at all because I know for most people it may be hard. So set a time a limit, Just don't let it consume you into, which eventually makes you distracted from the aim of this month. 

20. Lastly just enjoy this month. It only comes once a year, so make the most out of it.

I hope these tips have helped you. If you have any tips you would like to share then leave it in the comment down below. May Allah make our fasting easy for us, and accept our duas and forgiveness! Enjoy the last 25 days of Ramadhan <3
