5 Ways to Make Time For Dhikr in Ramadan.

Here Are a Few Easy Steps to Salvage Your Time in Ramadan and Engage in Dhikr:

1. DEDICATE A SPECIFIC PORTION OF YOUR DAY FOR DHIKR

Plan your daily activities in a way that you are able to take out an hour or even half an hour, which you can safely dedicate to dhikr. In this way, no matter how busy your day gets, you will still be able to make time for Allah (SWT).

If that means that you have to re-adjust your working schedule or your children’s activities, do it – it will go a long way, not only in this world but in the next as well. Try to come home earlier so you have more time not only for yourself and your family, but for your Lord as well.

2. BETWEEN DAILY TASKS

If you cannot manage to dedicate a specific time slot to dhikr on an everyday basis, you can make it a habit to perform dhikr in any free time slots you get in between your daily tasks.

For example, if you are driving home from work or going to the grocery store and you have a fifteen-minute journey, utilize that time to engage in dhikr, or if you have ten-minutes in between work meetings or your children’s play dates, utilize that slot for dhikr.

In this way, you will be able to maximize all your free slots throughout the day which would eventually amount to a lot of time being dedicated to dhikr.
3. WHILE CARRYING OUT DAILY TASKS

You can essentially remember God anywhere, anytime and for however long you want. All you have to do is memorize a few verses this Ramadan and constantly recite them while you carry on with your daily tasks, which take up most of your time.

For example, you can engage in dhikr while you are cooking or doing household chores or basically any tasks, which essentially do not require a lot of your conscious attention.

4. SET REMINDERS

If you are the forgetful kind, set reminders on your phone or tablets in order to remind yourself to engage in dhikr throughout your day. You can make reminder schedules on your phone and then make a conscious effort to follow through with them instead of swiping the notifications away.

5. BEFORE SLEEP

After the hustle bustle of the day, the time when you go to bed is an ideal time to remember Allah (SWT), because then, there are no more distractions around you. If you cannot manage to keep up with the daytime reminders, you can make it a habit to do dhikr at night. Try to go to bed early so you have more time to dedicate to your worship.

These are just a few simple tips for those looking to maximize their time of devotion to Allah (SWT) in Ramadan and hopefully they will come be of some benefit!

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life.
