Remember our last post regarding the Significance of Ramadan? Here we are going to talk about the practical implementation of the Ayahs and Hadiths regarding Ramadan.

Intro Text

Introduction

A Muslim is he who surrenders his will to Almighty Allah. Now, when you submit your will, there is no option for you to not obey the commands of Allah SWT and His Rasul (Sm.). And yeah, an intelligent servant would surely understand what his master is trying to focus on and what is most pleasing to his master and he would surely work along with that. We are no different and thus, we ought to carry out certain actions regarding making the use of the month of Ramadan fruitfully.

Things to do in Ramadan if you are a Muslim

1. From Quranic verse – Surah Baqara:185, Surah Qadr, Surah Dukhan:3-6 (From the previous post)

We had derived that these verses tell us the exact reason why Ramadan is so dear and favorite to Allah SWT. The Quran has been revealed this month in the Night of Qadr, and so, our first and foremost activity this month should be – Reciting the Quran.
Now, how should we recite the Quran? And How many times shall we give the Khatam e Quran? The Answers must be the practice of the Prophet PBUH. As he used to finish the whole Quran once in the month of Ramadan, we also should do once. But remember, the Non-Arabs should try to focus on the meaning of the Quran too if they don’t understand Arabic, because remember the Hadith of the Prophet sitting with Jibril (As.) in sessions of Quran? They used to review the essence of the Quran.
So, what are you waiting for? Start reading the Quran by now. Wallahi! That will be the best thing you did in a few lifetimes. And if you are already reciting the Quran? Then Focus on reciting it with meaning and Tafseer (Explanation).
