Wow I can not even believe that Ramadan is in 16 days. I am excited but nervous at the same time. Summer Ramadans really take their toll on you and I especially feel for those who do not live in a Muslim country. Here in Saudi most people get off work at dhur and also get a week off for Eid so that really helps a lot. Also if you happen to be out when magrhib is called there are people in the streets giving you packs of dates and bottles of water to break your fast with. MashAllah no place tops Saudi Arabia during Ramadan.
A few years ago a friend over at Cafe Muslimah shared this tip with us about completing the entire Quran during Ramadan and its something that I do every single year now and it really works perfectly so I wanted to share it with each of you. I have found it better to have a plan for everything before hand that way it comes easy.
The Qur’an has 600 pages approximately if you divide it on 30 days, that’s 20 pages a day. You see, that’s difficult to do right? But, if you divide it on the 5 prayers a day, it gets easier.
If you read 4 pages after every salah in Ramadan, then you’ve completed the Qur’an. If you want to complete the Qur’an twice, you read 4 pages before and after every salah.
