“O ye who believe, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon those before you, so that ye may learn self-restraint”. (Al-Quran:2:183). Best to finish reading the whole Quran in this blessed month. Come for Umrah for those who can afford…. Spend most of your time at masjid.

“O people! The month of Allah(swt) has come with His mercies and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all months. Its days are the best of days, its nights are the best of nights, its hours are the best of hours”.(Prophet Muhammad-saw)
Perform a lot of prayers….
Pray that Allah gives us the strength and patience and to accept all our fasts in this holy month.
Do a lot of tasbih…
Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, that Allah Subhanahu-wa-Ta’ala said:
“All the deeds of man are for himself, except for fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward it MYSELF”.
Give thanks that a messenger was sent to guide mankind…
In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through which those who fast will enter, and no one will enter it except them; when they have entered, it will be locked, and no-one else will enter through it.
Fasting will intercede for a person on the Day of Judgement, and will say, “O Lord! I prevented him from his food and physical desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.”
Whoever fasts one day, seeking the pleasure of Allah, if that is thelast day of his life, he will enter Paradise.
The night of Power
Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [ Jibrael (Gabrial)] by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees.
(All that night), there is Peace (and Goodness from Allah to his believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.
Verily, We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree).
And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)is?
The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months.
What to do in the Night of Power
Narrated Aisha (r.a.a.), Allah’s messenger (s.a.w.) said, “Search for the night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan”.
Aisha (r.a.a.) narrated, “I asked Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.) what should I do if I find the night of Qadr”.
The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) replied, “Pray to Allah: O our Lord! You are the most Forgiving, You love to forgive, so forgive us”.
During Ramadan, maximum food is wasted. People cook lavishly just to show their grandness of iftar. After fasting the whole day, and praying all the 5 times, finally committing a big sin – throwing away food. Did you ever realize in some countries, not having anything to eat, water and salt is used for iftar.
Instead of cooking extra food and throwing it away just to please your friends and relatives, prepare what is necessary and please Allah by sending a sizeable amount to poor countries for their saier and iftar.
Brothers and friends

Did you care to share food with a poor in the last one decade?
Did you care to share food with a poor in the last one year?

Please do it if you have not and keep doing it if you already did, because it is never enough and nobody knows whose child will be sitting there forraging for scraps of food!

Dear Lord,I promise I will never waste my food no matter how bad it can taste and howfull I may be. I pray that He will protect this little boy, guide anddeliver him away from his misery.

AMEN.I hope this picture will always serve as a reminder to us that howfortunate we are and that we must never never take things for granted.__________________

Complex carbohydrates at sehri so that the food lasts longer making you less hungry.
Haleem is an excellent source of protein and is a slow-burning food.
Dates are excellent source of sugar, fibre, carbohydrates, potassium and magnesium.
Almonds are rich in protein and fibre with less fat.
Bananas are a good source of potassium, magnesium and carbohydrates.
As much water or fruit juices as possible between iftar and bedtime so that your body may adjust fluid levels in time.
Constipation can cause piles (haemorroids), fissures (painful cracks in anal canal) and indigestion with a bloated feeling.
Causes: Too much refined foods, too little water and not enough fibre in the diet.
Remedy: Avoid excessive refined foods, increase water intake, use bran in baking, brown flour when making roti.
Indigestion And Wind
Causes: Over-eating. Too much fried and fatty foods, spicy foods, and foods that produce wind e.g. eggs, cabbage, lentils, carbonated drinks like Cola also produce gas.
Remedy: Do not over-eat, drink fruit juices or better still drink water. Avoid fried foods, add ajmor to wind-producing foods.
Lethargy ('low blood pressure')
Excessive sweating, weakness, tiredness, lack of energy, dizziness, especially on getting up from sitting position, pale appearance and feeling faint are symptoms associated with "low blood pressure". This tends to occur towards the afternoon.
Causes: Too little fluid intake, decreased salt intake.
Remedy: Keep cool, increase fluid and salt intake. Caution: Low blood pressure should be confirmed by taking a blood pressure reading when symptoms are present. Persons with high blood pressure may need their medication adjusted during Ramadhan. They should consult their doctor.
Causes: Caffeine and tobacco-withdrawal, doing too much in one day, lack of sleep, hunger usually occur as the day goes by and worsens by day end. Associated with "low blood pressure", the headache can be quite severe and can also cause nausea before Iftar.
Remedy: Cut down caffeine and tobacco slowly starting a week or two before Ramadhan. Herbal and caffeine-free teas may be substituted. Reorganise your schedule during the Ramadan so as to have adequate sleep.
Low Blood Sugar
Weakness, dizziness, tiredness, poor concentration, perspiring easily, feeling shaky (tremor), unable to perform physical activities, headache, palpitations are symptoms of low blood sugar.
Causes: in non-diabetics Having too much sugar i.e. refined carbohydrates especially at suhur (sehri). The body produces too much insulin causing the blood glucose to drop.
Remedy: Eat something at sehri and limit sugar-containing foods and drinks.
Caution: Diabetics may need to adjust their medication in Ramadan, consult your doctor.
Causes: Inadequate intake of calcium, magnesium and potassium foods.
Remedy: Eat foods rich in the above minerals e.g. vegetables, fruit, dairy products, meat and dates.
Caution: Those on high blood pressure medication and with kidney stone problems should consult their doctor.
Peptic Ulcers, Heart Burn, Gastritis and Hiatus Hernia
Increased acid levels in the empty stomach in Ramadhan aggravate the above conditions. It presents as a burning feeling in the stomach area under the ribs and can extend upto the throat. Spicy foods, coffee, and Cola drinks worsen these conditions. Medications are available to control acid levels in the stomach. People with proven peptic ulcers and hiatus hernia should consult their doctor well before Ramadhan.
Kidney stones may occur in people who have less liquids to drink. Therefore, it is essential to drink extra liquids so as to prevent stone formation.
Causes: During Ramadhan, when extra salah are performed the pressure on the knee joints increases. In the elderly and those with arthritis this may result in pain, stiffness, swelling and discomfort.
Remedy: Lose weight so that the knees do not have to carry extra load. Exercise the lower limbs before Ramadhan so that they can be prepared for the additional strain. Being physically fit allows greater fulfilment, thus enabling one to perform salah with ease.
Please do not forget me in your Duas.
