10 Beneficial Tips to Prepare for Ramadhan  by Shaykh Abdul Raheem hafizahullah

1. To fast some days in the month of Sha’baan
This will get you in the system, and then fasting will become easy. The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to fast in the month of Ramadhan perpetually.

2. Sincere tawba & Istghfaar
It cleanses the heart so the NOOR and Barakah of Ramadhan can enter the heart

3. Pray
We should start praying 5 times a day with Jamaat and Takbeere Ulaa

4. Zakat
We should calculate our Zakat and pay in Sha’baan, or you can pay it gradually throughout Ramadhan

5. Giving Up Sins
We should give up all our bad habits before Ramadhan starts.if we don’t, they will carry on in Ramadhan too.

6. Have Great Terms With Close Ones
Forgive one another, help one another, advise one another. Spring clean the heart

7. Qaza
If you have missed any fast from last Ramadhan, make up for them before Ramadhan starts. Also make up for any salah, kafaraa etc..

8. Plan Your Daily Schedule
This will help you throughout Ramadhan

9. Dua
The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to make this Dua:

اللهم سلمني لرمضان وسلم رمضان لي وتسلمو مني متقبلا

10. Social media
Minimize it, only use it for Necessity. This will help you focus to worship Allah more.
