Introduction To Ramadan
Ramadan, a month that is categorized as one of the holiest festivals of the Muslim Ummah, began on 23rd April this year 2020. This holy month paves the path to heaven, for it is believed that the gates of heaven open during Ramadan and Allah forgives all sins during this holy month. Muslims from all across the globe observe fasts, that starts from dawn to the sunset; bear in mind that fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. Ramadan is also the impeccable month for Muslims to devote their time to other charitable causes i.e., zakat. In this way and many others, this month presents the opportunity for the believers to cleanse the soul, relocate attention to noble causes, and exercise self-discipline.
Throughout this month, Muslims greet each other by saying “Ramadan Mubarak”. The meaning of this greeting is “Have a Blessed Month”; it is just one conventional way to welcome friends, family and bystanders alike.
Enumerated below are a few of the many greetings that you can use to wish your friends and family even towards the end of this holy month.

5 Things To Do In The Last Days Of Ramadan
More Quran Reading
Islam constantly encourages Muslims to make the best of Laylatul Qadr during the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan. Quran (97:3) describes this night as "better than a thousand months". It is also the very night on which the Quran revelations began. Therefore, we suggest that you connect to Laylatul Qadr with more Quran readings.
Of course, you should seek to push yourself to do more good than usual during these nights. However, try also to read as much Quran as you can. Apart from reading Quran in Arabic or English, read a book that provides the methodical interpretation of The Noble Qur'an. Such a book will be a valuable tool for those who seek to enhance their understanding of the Quran. To accomplish this goal, try to drastically reduce television, facebook, and other socializing chores. After all, the Prophet (pbuh) tells us, "The best of you is the one who learns the Qur'an and teaches it." Al-Bukhari
Make Your Last Fasts Really Count
If you find yourself caught in bad habits even during Ramadan while fasting, put in an extra effort in the last few days of this blessed month, in order to become more aware of these behaviors and put a stop to them before they begin again. These bad habits can range from small bad things such as; swearing, gossiping and getting angry at little things, to big ones such as self-pitying. Take these last few days of Ramadan as an opportunity to completely get rid of the habits you find hard to eliminate otherwise. Take this not only as an opportunity for more sawab, but also self-improvement.
A plethora of Muslims pay this farz i.e. an obligatory pillar of Islam, on yearly basis. Many people call zakat the ticket to paradise. This is because it keeps the giver away from sin, as well as saves him from the moral ill that arises from the love and greed of wealth. If you haven’t paid zakat already, pay it during these last days of Ramadan to benefit from the greater spiritual reward that comes with zakat.
While paying zakat, do not forget the needy relatives, neighbours and friends. After all, charity begins at home. Try also to consider the hot spots of suffering in the current conditions i.e., the destitute who cannot fill their stomach due to lack of work in the COVID situation.
Dua, Dua, Dua
Dua means appeal, which means connecting with a divine being. Dua is a crucial part of a Muslim’s faith as well as his belief. Through dua, Muslims ask Allah Almighty for whatever they want in life, regardless of how big or small it is. Therefore, use as much of Ramadan’s last minutes to make dua as you can. Do not only limit yourself to the dua for day to day necessities, but also seek for Allah’s mercy and forgiveness.
Try to pour your heart out, asking from Allah who is already well aware of your needs and wants truly removes any barrier between Him and you. He certainly listens to us and satisfies our desires. Another upside of Ramadan is that it results in loss of arrogance. This is because when we make dua we submit to the fact that Allah only is the creator and everything is under His control.
As Prophet (SAW) said, “The most excellent worship is Dua.” (Sahih Al-Jami)
Call Your Relatives To Make Eid Plans
Islam puts maintaining contact with loved ones above everything else. In fact, the joyous festivity of Eid is not only about experiencing joy, but also sharing it with friends, family and strangers alike. Therefore, if you haven’t been able to keep in touch with your relatives, use these last Ramadan days to hit them up with an email, call or text about getting together for Eid-ul-Fitr.
For getting back in touch with the lost contacts, you could also send away an Eid gift from the list enumerated above. An e-Card from sites such as JibJab is also a creative idea. This site entails an option to use real photographs of your loved ones in the animated fun JibJab videos. Even something as simple as an ecard may be the perfect fun icebreaker that you need to revive lost relations.
Maintain Your Practices After Ramadan As Well!
The purpose of fasting for a complete month is to instill healthy practices in our daily life. When we try to do good deeds for a complete month, they become more of a habit for us. Try to keep these habits alive; even simple ones such as not telling a lie or keeping your temper in control can be helpful for us. Try to read quran and pray five times a day even after Eid. Help the needy ones and keep in touch with your family all year around!
