Ramadan is one of the holiest months of the lunar calendar and comes after the month of Sha’aban. Because it is one of the pillars of Islam, we should take advantage of this great month in everything that is useful, in relation to getting closer to God Almighty and about our physical condition. In this article you will find very important information related to the month of Ramadan, which you can easily follow.
Why do we fast during Ramadan?
As we have already mentioned, Ramadan is one of the pillars of Islam. The more we think about what the objectives of the month of Ramadan are, the more we find that the answer to this question is long and limitless, but we can briefly divide these objectives into two parts: religious and humanitarian objectives. As for the religious aspect, fasting brings us closer to God Almighty, because fasting purifies the soul. As far as the human aspect is concerned, the aim is to feel for the poor and those who do not have the sustenance of their day and to thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed on us.
How to make the most of the month of Ramadan
When the month of Ramadan comes, we want to get closer to God Almighty than at any other time. But sometimes we may find it difficult to organize our time to do all our duties towards God and what concerns our personal life (work, studies, sports, etc.). But if we knew how to organize our time we could easily overcome this problem.
How to organize the day
The month of Ramadan is the month of tranquility, rest and closeness to God Almighty, but sometimes we feel that it passes too quickly and days may go by without us making the best use of this holy month. Here are some simple steps you can take to organize your time during Ramadan:
- Try to go to bed early to get enough rest and not feel sluggish during the fasting hours.
- Wake up an hour or two before dawn to pray at night, read the Qur’an, eat, and pray Al-Fajr.
- Use the time after Al-Fajr prayer and before you start your work to draw close to God Almighty through prayer, reciting the Qur’an, seeking forgiveness …
- Pray Al-Dhuhr and take any opportunity or free time you have to draw closer to God, even if it is at work/study through remembrance or forgiveness, for example.
- Take a break before Al-Asr prayer, go out to buy what is missing at home, play sports, visit your family or friends….
- Prepare the breakfast table and get ready for Maghrib prayer. Take advantage of breakfast time to talk with your family and create a fun atmosphere.
- Pray Al-Isha and Taraweeh in the mosque or with your family members at home or on your own and go to bed early to prepare for the next day.
Tips for this month
Here are some general tips on how to make the most of Ramadan and take care of your body:
- As mentioned earlier, take every opportunity you have to get closer to God, as this is the main purpose of this holy month.
- Purify your heart and soul and forgive injustice. Visit your family and friends and renew the love between you. Be good to your parents.
- Do not give up Suhoor food, drink plenty of fluids and do not overeat.
- Don’t be lazy exercise, walk and keep moving.
- Get enough rest. Sleep is very important to relax the body and mind.
Get rid of gas and cramps in the month of Ramadan
During fasting, some people may suffer from excessive gases and flatulence in the abdomen, so it is very necessary to take care of the food that we eat, drink water frequently between breakfast and suhoor and sleep for enough hours. In addition, we can use activated charcoal, which has many benefits for the human body, in the form of a food supplement.
MARNYS® New Carbon enhances the performance of the digestive system optimally, which reduces the feeling of discomfort caused by flatulence and stomach cramps, and thanks to the interaction of its natural components (mint and anise), it contributes to the reduction of increased gas and intestinal cramps.
Finally, I ask Almighty God to accept our fasting and deeds. Amen.
