Resources to Maximize Ramadan 2020 in Quarantine

Updated: Apr 29


Salaams and Hello To All,


It definitely has been a minute since I last posted here but, InshaAllah that will be changing soon!


Today, I wanted to talk about Ramadan and put out some reminders and tips along the way that may be beneficial for you this Ramadan! The blessed month is approaching near and dear to our hearts and sadly we may not be able to spend it in the way we may have expected to. During the crisis of COVID-19, we are kept in practicing social distancing, so much so that churches, temples and masjids all across the world are closed.


What does this mean as Muslims?


Will we be able to pray taraweeh prayers together, go to Jummah Prayer at the masjid, invite guests over for iftar, or even spend time in the House of Allah. Will it get to the point that we wont have Eid Prayer? Allah Knows Best.


What I do know is that this should not stop us from still getting the benefits of Ramadan. I have done some research and have tried to put as many resources as I could find as well as recommendations on different tools that you can use during this time. I will InshaAllah continue to be adding more to list! If you have an recommendations, suggestions or any additional tips, please get in contact with me so I can add them and give you credit or share them in the comments so that others may benefit!


In the mean time, check them out, benefit from these tools and share them to those around you so that they may also benefit InshaAllah!
