Preparation for the month of Ramadan
A Muslim needs to decide to fast during the month of Ramadan before the month of Ramadan arrives. After making the intention, I have to plan how I will spend the month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is a month full of special virtues. It is not possible to describe the virtues of Ramadan in a few words. Before we the virtues of Ramadan have already been discussed. So here he does not want to talk about. You can see my previous discussion where I discussed the virtues of Ramadan in detail. To achieve the virtues of Ramadan, it is necessary to make some preparations before Ramadan after planning how to spend Ramadan, i.e. what to worship.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to prepare himself mentally for the great good of Ramadaan long ago. He used to take mental preparation from Shaban, even Rajab month. And in this way, it is possible to perform any work in a beautiful, fair, and tidy manner only if there is determination and mental preparation from the east.
Here are some of the things that can be done in preparation for Ramadan.
1. Know the duration of Ramadan and multiply the days
A Muslim waits anxiously for the great month of Ramadan. Does he count the days when the month of Ramadan will come? Since when will I fast? For Muslims, the arrival of Ramadan is like this: someone’s relatives are returning home by plane from far away. His relatives are eagerly waiting at the airport and home. When will the plane arrive? When will he get off the plane? And When to reach home. Muslims are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is according to our relatives. So know well, when is the month of Ramadan going to start according to the calendar we follow? Then start counting the days.
2. Decide in advance where to stay in Ramadan
Where will you stay in Ramadan? At work? Do you visit the village home or outside? Plan your Ramadan according to the location or area and prepare mentally accordingly.
3. Prepare family members mentally for fasting
In addition to your own mental preparation, keep your family members, relatives, and subordinates mentally aware and ready to welcome the month of Ramadan and observe fasting throughout the month. Have a family meeting for this purpose. Suggest. Plan to observe Ramadan properly. Divide responsibilities among family members.
4. Aware relatives, neighbors, and social friends
Tell everyone that Ramadan is coming, Siam is coming, Siam is just a day away. In this way, keep your relatives, neighbors, and social friends aware of the fasting month of Ramadan. There are also virtues and rewards in announcing the date of the beginning of the fast of the Laks.
5. Reschedule office-court and work-time
In the month of Ramadan, a Muslim has to make some changes in his daily lifestyle, change his schedule, change his schedule. He has to make changes in his sleep and waking schedule, rest and eating schedule, office court schedule, schedule of activities, schedule of leaving his residence, and returning to his residence. Apart from that, some new activities have to be added to his program this month. During this month he reduces his worldly activities and increases the fruits of his worship and good deeds. With these things in mind, you can change your traditional lifestyle and reschedule before Ramadan.
6. Make the necessary financial preparations
Make financial preparations for this month before the start of Ramadan. There are several reasons why a Muslim spends more money this month. Such as 1. Due to breaking the fast of the fasting people. 2. Due to more and more donations. 3. Due to the increase in the price of goods by hoarders and unscrupulous traders. 4. Many people pay annual zakat this month. 5. Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations ahead. . Due to the collection of Fitra. So be prepared to spend the necessary money on these sectors and reasons.
7. Take the initiative to keep the market transparent and controlled
Because our society is not completely honest and transparent in terms of policy and ethics, it is seen that even in the month of Ramadan, there is an indomitable tendency to adulterate food, change the size, speculate, cheat and increase the price. As a result, the fasting people have to suffer a lot. As a conscious citizen and as a Muslim, you also have a huge responsibility to keep the market transparent and regulated. You may also be a businessman, lawyer, doctor, government employee, private employee, policeman, army member, factory owner, artisan, teacher, student, or farmer, or any other employee. And You also play a role in keeping the market transparent and regulated. You keep yourself transparent and controlled in your position. Make others aware of transparency as well, encourage, motivate. Do these things before the start of Ramadan.
8. Take the initiative to create a holy environment conducive to fasting
Take the initiative to create an emotional and real environment in the society even before the beginning of Ramadan to uphold the special and supreme holy dignity of the month of Ramadan. For this purpose already 1. Keep making people aware. 2. The Khatibs and Imams of the mosques discuss the khutbah and before and after the prayers. 3. At home, in the mosque, in the official court, read and discuss the verses and hadiths of the Qur’an and Hadith related to fasting. 4. Print and distribute Ramadan calendars. 5. Print and distribute leaflets and booklets.
9. Make arrangements to increase the facilities for the worshipers in the mosques
In the month of Ramadan, Muslims compete for the unconditional mercy, forgiveness, and good deeds given by Allah Almighty. Men come to the mosque in large numbers for day and night prayers. In the mosques of our country, even if less in the cities, especially in the mosques of Mofasbal, there is a huge shortage of necessary facilities for the worshipers. So to increase the facilities of the worshipers in the mosques through private and joint ventures
01. Expand space if space is not available. 02. Arrange for ablution. Adequate provision of azure water. 03. Make arrangements for urinals/toilets etc. 04. If there is no fan in the mosque, arrange to install a fan. 05. Increase the number if there is a shortage of fans. 06. If there is no power line, connect the power line. 07. Install air conditioners in the mosques of the city wherever possible. 08. Keep the windows and doors of the mosque tidy. 09. Arrange mats/rugs/carpets etc. for the convenience of the devotees. 10. Make good arrangements for the beautiful and safe position of those who will perform i’tikaf.
These and other such measures need to be done as much as possible in private initiatives. The mosque committee should take initiative in this regard. Besides, those who have been given more blessings by Allah Pak, come forward.
10. Arrange Tarabeeh or night prayers in the mosque
To get a great reward, a large number of devotees gather in Tarabi’s prayers. For this purpose 1. Arrange for the recitation of Tarabi by the Hafez for the long recitation of the Qur’an in a beautiful melodious voice. 2. Instead of reciting the Qur’an quickly in Tarabi’s prayers, arrange to recite it slowly and slowly. 3. On the day that the part of the Qur’an that will be recited, Imam Sahib or Hafez Sahib, before the start of the prayer, recite the meaning of that part to the worshipers.
11. Mahe welcomes Ramadan
See the moon of Ramadan at the end of Shaban. Look alone, look in groups. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘You fast when you see the moon.’ So look at the moon of Ramadan. Welcome the month of Ramadan by looking at the moon in this way and pray to Allah for the grace of fasting the whole month.
