Proposed Ramadan Program

Ramadan is a time of spiritual growth and multiplied reward.


To take advantage of what this month has to offer, it's best to be intentional and develop a plan.


To help you with that process, I have highlighted a basic starter plan below.


The goals of this plan include performing all prayers on time with their associated sunnah prayers, making more dua and dhikr, and reading the Qur'an at least once during the month. The plan also takes into account your need to socialize and rest.


As mentioned, this is a starting point and should be altered based on your schedule and additional goals.
