A person's intention when fasting, is to bring him/herself closer to God.
• Make a Dua (Prayer List) • Write down your goals • Your best friend is the Quran • Fast with your heart too
The digestive system absorbs nutrients that every system in our body requires. Fasting cleanses your body by removing harmful toxins that accumulate from normal everyday life.
Ramadan is not just about staying away from food, drink or intimate relations. The Quran was initiated in Ramadan as a guidance and should be a focus of our contemplation, especially in this time.
• Take short naps • Contemplate the gift that you have in Iftaar & Suhoor • Perform all Sunnah prayers for each of your 5 daily prayers • Light Exercise – Go For a walk or cycle • Focus on good deeds
Avoid food which contain carbohydrates. Overeating will also sap your energy and give you a stomach ache and headache. Go easy on the fried, oily and spicy food. Limit coffee and tea intake.
Do not splurge on food because Ramadan is approaching. This will only increase your appetite and make it more difficult to fast.
Suhoor, the predawn meal is important. Having an early breakfast from now will help your body get used to the early hours.
Have three main meals; breakfast lunch and dinner and avoid snacking in between. Avoid fried, oily and spicy food.
If you are a coffee lover, reduce your caffeine intake now. Switch to decafe, one coffee a time. Replace coffee with water.
Smokers may experience anger, restlessness and difficulty concentrating. Reduce smoking during the day.
Start regulating your sleep as you will be waking up early for Suhoor. You might want to start sleeping earlier as a result.
Prepare your menu for Iftar & Suhoor for the first seven days and shop for groceries when you are still full of energy.
Schedule an appointment with your doctor. Check with your doctor if it is safe to fast. Do a health check-up if necessary.
