يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُون َ(2:183)

O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil)

  Holy Ramadan: Authentic Islamic Do’s and Don’ts   

   

DO…

Make intention before the start of each fast.

Take Suhoor (the meal before fasting starts). The difference between the fast of a Muslim and the fast of others is the taking of suhoor (sehri).

Delay the Suhoor to as close to Fajr as possible.

This is recommended

DO…

Hasten to break (iftar) the fast at Maghrib time.

This is recommended

Try to break your fast with dates, as this is a sunnah. If dates aren’t available, break your fast with water.

This is recommended

DO…

Make a dua at the time of breaking the fast, eg. ‘O Allah, for you I have fasted and on Your Provision I have broken the fast, the thirst is gone, the veins are moisten". The reward is certain, inshaAllah indeed for the fasting person, when he breaks his fast, a supplication which is not rejected at iftar.

This is recommended

Use a Miswak during fasting, as this is sunnah.

This is recommended

Provide something to a person who is fasting, to break his fast "He who provides something to the observer of fast for breaking the fast earns the same reward as the one who observes the fast, without diminishing"

From Ahmad & Tirmidhi

Pray the night prayer (tahajjad).

 

DO…

Practice Itikaf (seclusion in the masjid) in the last 10 days of Ramadan.

Forget that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you do not need to fast, although you can if you feel able to and it won’t harm the baby.

 

DON’T…

Worry, it is not a sin to not perform "Taraweeh" prayer. However, praying is of great benefit and reward because it’s a "Sunnah".

 

 

 

A humble request: If you genuinely liked this article and feel Islamic worthiness of it then please share it with your relatives, friends and acquaintances. Insha Allah by doing so, you would also be a partner with me in spreading the words of Allah-swt and his messenger prophet Mohammed-pbuh.

 

Warning:  Preaching, practicing and implementing innovations/Biddats/Biddahs in Islam is not allowed and indeed is a sin and every sin is punishable by Allah-SWT…

Wallaho Alam Bis Swab, Allah knows best (None else)
