Ramadan is back giving us a precious opportunity to get closer to God and shape up our souls. While time flies too fast, Muslims should get into Ramadan mode as fast as they can and grab the most possible blessings of the holy month:
Here are some tips to make your Ramadan different:
1- Be pure and sincere:
If you ask yourself about the essence of any deeds you’ll find that only sincere intention makes them acceptable. Purify your heart and seek nothing, but God’s pleasure in all worship acts.
2- Have a healthy lifestyle:
Make Ramadan an opportunity to detox your body through reducing caffeine and smoking intakes, if you are a smoker. Start with a carbohydrate Sahur, the pre-dawn meal, to keep your body energized through the day. For Iftar, evening meal where Muslims break their fasting, make sure to replenish energy levels through having the major food groups within the meal. However, avoid excessive eating. Follow the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad and break your fast with dates. It was proven that dates are easily digested and rich with sugar.
