One of my friends just produced these super-awesome RAMADHAAN Planning Tools.
Use them to the fullest and share with friends and family. Spread the good word so you can get the reward as well inshaAllah.
I’ll be sharing my own filled version of it inshaAllah over the weekend (if anyone wants to model it, they are most welcome to)
Click link below…
Remember to spread these to others inshaAllah. Let’s see if we can get 500 downloads inshaAllah of these files.
Hope Allah gives us a blessed Ramadhaan and helps us to make the most of it.

Allâh says (what means), “The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).” (Al-Qadr 97:3)
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allâh, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allâh gives manifold increase to whom He pleases. And Allâh is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.” (Al-Baqarah 2:261)
Just imagine the returns if you give 1 Dinar or 1$ sincerely in the way of Allâh on laylatul qadr! Suppose you give 1$ every night in these last 10 nights of Ramadhaan you would have spent 10$. And the returns are much more than:-
1*7*100*1000*30 + 9*7*100 = 21,006,300 (Yes in words that’s much more than 21 million!!!)
The more you’ll give with ikhlaas (sincerity) the more you’ll get. Verily, Allâh never breaks His Promise.” (Aali Imran 3:9).
BaarakAllaahu feekum. Please share with others. WAllaahu ‘aalam.

I pray to Allah that everyone is taking full advantage of this blessed month of Ramadhaan. For verily, it could surely be our last.
Wanted to share a few quick things about spending Ramadhaan outside of the US and wanted to hear your comments also.
Spending the first 10 days of Ramadhaan in Pakistan.. It’s really a different feeling here. Especially at the time of each prayer. The moment you start walking towards the masjid, you see so many people mashaAllah going to the masjid for the congregational prayer. At least where I reside in CT, you hardly notice any difference except for ‘isha and taraweeh.
Breaking iftaar with the whole family is also more special because there are 10 minutes between the time of adhaan and the iqamah. So we eat what we can in that time and then the men start walking to the masjid.
Walking to the masjid is really tremendous. Not only do you get reward as mentioned in the following hadith but its also good for the health of the body mashaAllah.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).”
However, its a little frustrating to see the opposition to the Sunnah. Just today, at the masjid for ‘isha, I saw a person in the row who was standing on his own prayer rug and both people on either side weren’t stepping on the prayer rug to close the gaps. There was easily room for one more person on either side.
It’s really nice however, to see so many people in the masjid for all the prayers. Makes you feel like this is a special month.
May Allah guide the rulers of the Muslim lands and guide the Muslims to Tawheed and the authentic Sunnah and away from acts of shirk, innovation and blind following of the madhabs. Ameen.
What have been your experiences of Ramadhaan outside of the US in Muslim countries? Go ahead and share. BarakAllahu feekum
