    First Ramadan




    What mistakes do I need to avoid that new fasters make?

    Any tips or things you've learned about fasting such a long time, would be welcomed.

    Re: First Ramadan


    Try to fast a couple of times (ideally Mondays and Thursdays as it is a sunnah) before Ramadan starts to help you get into it. That's what I do.
    Pray. Fast. Zakat. Pilgrimage. Allah.

    Awww ma sha Allah

    Take it easy on yourself... remember the Ayah of Ramadan mentioned in the Qur'an:

    "The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. "

    In the same Ayah, Allah Says:

    "Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship" [2:185]

    I can honestly tell you now- we can only fast during Ramadan because Allah makes it easy for us. Alhamdulillah.

    Try to have suhoor- even if it's only a little something. It will help you throughout the day in sha Allah. And ask Allah to make performing acts of worship easy for us all in sha Allah.
    ~‘And He will provide him from (sources) he could never imagine. And whoever puts their trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed, Allah has set a measure for all things.’~ - سورة الطلاق : 3

    it's really not as hard as it looks lol, everyone gets scared of the long hours before ramadan comes in but when they start fasting, those hours fly by.
    best thing would be if you have some sisters around you to help you along, if there is a masjid close to you they are likely to have some lectures happening around this time regarding ramadan and do's/don'ts of fasting
    شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
    فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
    وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
    ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

    Practice before Ramadan so you get a feel for it.

    Make sure you eat suhoor too and that it has some carbs that stays with you throughout the day. Drink plenty of water before and after fasting. And don't eat too fast. A mistake a lot of people make is that when they're hungry they eat everything in sight. Break your fast with a date and water. Pray. And then eat a balanced meal after but nothing too big or small. You can have snacks after so don't rush it and end up with indigestion or a trip to the hospital.

    Don't push yourself too. If you feel sick then don't fast. If you get your period, don't not eat. You need food so eat it when you're sick or menstruating.

    And the most important tip - create a plan of what you want to accomplish during Ramadan. How much of the Quran do you want to read? How many times do you want to go to the masjid and pray? What do you wish to eat? Planning it out will make it easier for things after so you don't feel like you're rushing or spending all of your time in the kitchen. And write a diary or journal during Ramadan to clear your thoughts and remind you of what's important.

    May Allah make this Ramadan a spiritually cleansing one and make us better people after it. Ameen.

    "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
    It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."

    That's really helpful Pippin, especially planning it out. I think planning what to read each day and planning a balanced nutrition during the hours that we can eat, is such a good idea so that when I'm at work during the day, I don't have to think about it.

    Ameen to your dua'a

    Barakallahu feeki Pippin

    Thanks Rumaysah, there are some sisters at the masjid but I don't see them hardly. They go during the week when I'm at work so in the evening when I go, they are not around.

    I'll look out for some lecture on Ramadan. Both the masjids close to me have lots of info on their website about Ramadan.

    Inshallah, I might try the masjid close to my work as well. I'll not be needing my lunch break during Ramadan so maybe I can go to the masjid during that time.

    Barakallahu feeki sister.

    Thank you sis,

    Last year I observed others during Ramadan and tried to be helpful buying dates for them (I thought it was 3 dates that breaks the fast) but I failed to realise the dates I'd purchased were from Israel and the recipients face gave a glint of horror before they smiled and said thank you.

    It's a comfort running throughout Islam that Allah (swt) wants it to be easy for us and I'm sure with Ramadan, once I get the hang of it, inshallah it will be the same.

    Barakallahu feeki sister for the encouragement and verses

    Wa 'alaykum assalaam wa rahmatullaah,

    Alhamdulillaah - your first observance of Ramadhaan. Amazing. I think the other members have given good suggestions, try to prepare as much as you can by listening to lectures about Ramadhaan, and fasting beforehand to get a 'feel' of things.

    Keep a diary - it's always good for reflection, and an Action Plan to see what you'd like to achieve during this blessed month.

    Make your Action Plan Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timely.

    Plan your meals, make them light but fulfilling, otherwise the Night Prayers will be difficult.

    Generally - focus on as many acts of worship you can do as possible.

    All the best.

    Re: First Ramadan

    Don't use air freshener or spray deodorant during Ramadan. Switch to gel air freshener and roll on deodorant.

    Don't gargle deep in your throat during wudu or sniff water too far into the nose.

    Don't worry if you forget something, genuine forgetting doesn't invalidate the fast.

    Allahu A'lam

    I watched lectures and asked questions to prepare for my first Ramadhan too. The experience made it easier for me to fast the following 6 days of Shawwal.

    Re: First Ramadan



    First a big congratulations on your first Ramadan, may Allah grant us all the opportunity to gather as much as possible from it.

    Regarding tips, more on the practical side of things, but if one is used to tea/coffee, best to cut down and eventually eliminate it beforehand. Slowly and preferably over a period of two weeks, but a low as two days in advance can still help. Otherwise it might be difficult the first couple of days, mainly the first. I find as I get older, or maybe as I drink more tea, it gets harder to leave it. Last time it was a good two weeks of grogginess and a heavy head, wasn't Ramadan for me at the time though.

    Just to clarify ukthi Rifqah,

    Islam By its nature is easy, Allah عز و جل intended ease and is the one who ordained fasting in Ramadan ... So it is easy , it is made easier than other months by the shayateen being chained up too,

    The take it easy and Allah عز و جل intends ease argument doesn't mean we can skip obligatory fasts or reduce it etc without a Shariah reason,

    Re: First Ramadan

    Don't stuff yourself like a pig when Maghreb happens or before Fajr.

    I made that mistake the first time and almost threw up.

    Also, food isn't as important as water. So drink more before Fajr than what you eat.

    Re: First Ramadan

    Try to reduce your workload during Ramadhaan so that you can spend more time relaxing, making dhikr, making tilaawat of the Quraan, etc.

    Be ready to open the fridge then realizing you are fasting and close it. You will do this repeatedly during the first week.

    Re: First Ramadan

    Dua when sighting the new moon:

    *اللَّهُمَّ أَهِلَّهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْيُمْنِ وَالْإِيمَانِ وَالسَّلَامَةِ وَالْإِسْلَامِ وَالتَّوْفِيقِ لِمَا تُحِبُّ وَتَرْضَى رَبِّي وَرَبُّكَ اللَّهُ*


    *Allaahumma ahillahu 'alayna bil yumni Wal eemaani was salaamati Wal islaami wat tawfeeqi limaa tuhibbu Wa tardhaa Rabbee Wa Rabbukallaah*


    "O Allaah, let this moon (month) pass over us with blessings, Eemaan, safety, and in the belief of Islaam. Grant us the ability to act on the actions that You love and Pleases You. (O moon) My Lord and Your Lord is Allaah".


    Do we say this du'a while looking at the moon this evening or is it okay to say it even while not actually looking at the moon?

    Re: First Ramadan

    Things I have learnt is that you will feel hungry in the first few days and think that you can't do this but once you have been fasting for a week, you will get into the routine and it will get easier as the month progresses...

    Sometimes you forget you're fasting and just eat or drink something...a hadith even mentions it

    Al-Bukhaari (6669) and Muslim (1155) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever forgets he is fasting and eats or drinks, let him complete his fast for it is Allaah Who has fed him and given him to drink.”

    And you don't need to make up that fast.

    “but He will call you to account for that which your hearts have earned”

    [al-Baqarah 2:225]

    Forgetfulness is not something which is earned by the heart.



    An interesting story was narrated by ‘Abd al-Razzaaq from ‘Amr ibn Dinar: that a person came to Abu Hurayrah and said: “I started fasting in the morning then I forgot and ate.” He said, “It does not matter.” He said: “Then I entered upon someone and by mistake I ate and drank.” He said, “It does not matter, Allaah has fed you and given you to drink.” Then he said: “I entered upon another person and forgot, and ate.” Abu Hurayrah said: “You are a person who is not used to fasting.”.
    “Whoever wants to purify his heart must prefer Allah over and above his own desires.” .

    Re: First Ramadan



    I'm just checking that the regular five prayers have no changes to them during Ramadan?

    That is correct though people delay magrib slightly in order to break the fast
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

    I had planned some water and three dates, then magrib salah, then a meal after, so yes, slightly delayed.

    Is that allowed to delay prayer? It is said hurry to prayer, go immediately. I suppose it is only slightly delayed.

    We are encouraged to hasten in breaking the fast so yes it's allowed

    Re: First Ramadan



    Can you combine Shawaal and missed days of a fast?

    This issue is known to the scholars as the issue of pairing or combining acts of worship. It takes many forms such as this one, which is combining an obligatory and a mustahabb action with one intention. If a person intends to do the mustahabb action, that will not be acceptable for the obligatory action. If a person fasts with the intention of ‘Ashoora’, that will not be acceptable as making up for a missed Ramadan fast, but if he intends to make up the missed Ramadan fast and does that on the day of ‘Ashoora’, then his making up the missed fast will be valid, and there is the hope that he will also attain the reward for ‘Ashoora’, according to some scholars.

    Ar-Ramli (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Nihaayat al-Muhtaaj (3/208): If he fasts in Shawwaal to make up a missed fast, or in fulfilment of a vow, or otherwise, or on an occasion such as the day of ‘Ashoora’, he will also attain the reward for the voluntary fast. This was stated in a fatwa by my father (may Allah have mercy on him), following al-Baarizi, al-Asfooni, an-Naashiri, the faqeeh ‘Ali ibn Saalih al-Hadrami, and others, but he will not attain the full reward that comes from doing what is required, especially if he missed Ramadan and fasted Shawwaal to make up for it.

    Re: First Ramadan



    I started Eid today as I wasn't sure about sighting through a telescope and everything so, to be on the safe side, I went with Monday.

    The thing I noticed today was that I thought I'd want to eat myself silly but I didn't. I think because of why we fasted it felt obscene to do that, I just felt so much gratitude for our ability to stretch out our hand and food is at the end of it, unlike a lot of our brothers and sisters for whom fasting is their week and if they are blessed some if their week will include rice. Sometimes grain by grain rescued from the dirt spilled by others.

    I hope I never lose these thoughts and the respect and gratitude for what we have.
