5 Tips for Those Working in Ramadan

ISLAMIC INVITATIONS

It is advisable that we try and take some days off during the month of Ramadan especially during the last 10 days, so that we can devote some time exclusively for Allah. However, this may not be possible for all of us. For those that will be working, we will list some practical steps which if followed, will Insha’Allah allow us to make the most of the time available.

1. Time Management

JOURNEY TO ALLAH

Alhuda, The Quran Club

Imam AlShafi’ee said, “Journey to Allah limping and broken and don’t wait for wellness, because waiting for wellness is inability.”

It means, for example, that you get up to pray but your prayer is still without focus, you recite the quran but it is a broken recitation far from perfection…

Don’t worry, continue and seek out who will teach you to recite.

You begin to live your life in a way that is pleasing to Allah but at times your soul and desires overpower you…
