Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Preparation

So Ramadan is almost upon us insh’Allah, a matter of two or there days to go. I have been thinking about preparation is required on and off, and nothing much had come to mind. I haven’t needed to do a big shop, because we have all the shops on our doorstep almost. I haven’t made samosa’s and spring rolls to freeze, because it didn’t seem worth the trouble (we buy Classic kebabs, the best I have tasted and Lazeeza samosa’s and spring rolls – based in Birmingham I think, but I can’t find a link).

My younger sister dropped off a big box of dates for us to breakfast. I did debate making Ramadan decorations, but my heart wasn’t in it and I wasn’t sure I wanted the clutter where I could see it all day long (I might change my mind on that though).  I have joined an online tafseer class (Quran explanation), that runs for only half an hour a day and I hope it helps to improve the quality if my worship in Ramadan and beyond.

Other than that, I am just seeing how it goes, what routine I will fall into, debating reducing my morning coffee intake and taking it easy insh’Allah.

Have you done any Ramadan preparation? Do you have big intentions this year, or do you just want to get through each day?

  1. Salam aleykoum,

    Same here: take it easy, focus on fasting (I plan to have some days off, that's never possible the other years!), being with the kids, no decorations or special activities at the moment... but if the will comes, maybe!
