Don’t you just love graphic organisers? Not only do they condense information for you, it’s presented in a concise and creative manner. All my visual design people can relate, amirite? And what about a graphic organiser that helps you organise your Ramadan effectively? #organiserception #doublewhammy I know it’s very tempting to just want to sleep the whole day away during Ramadan because…well, we’re fasting. But Ramadan is the best month to work on our iman, mental and physical health as well as squeeze in some amal jariah. It may seem daunting but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Here are 10 tips for you to have a meaningfully productive Ramadan, from the folks over at productivemuslim.com!
Have sincere intentions, work hard and make lots of dua for an ultimate productive Ramadan!
Plan your day each day of Ramadan, the night before. Choose 3 important tasks you want to achieve the next day and record it in your diary or our ultimate taskinator!
Never EVER miss Sahur, wake up at least 1 hour before Fajar and have a filling and balanced meal.
Start working on your most important tasks right after Fajar and get at least 1 or 2 done.
Try to get an afternoon nap, not more than 20 minutes, either just before Zuhur or after Zuhur.
Plan your Ramadan days (and life!) around Salah times, not the other way round!
BLOCK at least one-hour for reciting Quran each day.
Break your fast with dates and milk or dates and water; go pray Maghrib, then come back for a light meal.
Give lots of ‘Physical Sadaqah’; get involved in organising community iftars, charity drives, helping orphans etc. Earn reward working for others.
Don’t miss an opportunity for Dawah! When someone asks you why you’re not eating, give them a beautiful explanation of Ramadan and Islam.
