5 Good Habits in Ramadan to Carry Forward

Man reading image

We are more than halfway through Ramadan, and you’ve probably built some great habits this month. Good habits in Ramadan, like more prayer, increased charity, and a new level of self control, should stay with you beyond the holy month. 

But how can you carry on these habits into the coming year? Below are a few great tips to help.

5 Good Habits in Ramadan (and How to Keep Practicing Them)

1. Make time for the Quran

During this holy month you’ve probably made it a habit to integrate the Quran into your day. Pencil it into your calendar if you can. If that’s difficult, try downloading a Quran app and read it for 15 minutes a day.

2. Keep the suhoor alarm on

You’ve probably gotten used to waking up a bit before sunrise everyday. Keep the alarm on and use the pre-dawn minutes to reflect on the upcoming day and prepare for the Fajr prayer.

3. Try fasting twice a week

The Sunnah (Prophetic tradition) is to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. This will help extend the mindfulness of Ramadan to the entire year. Plus there’s a lot of research that touts the benefits of intermittent fasts.

4. Eat with the family

You don’t have to be fasting to have family dinners. Hold on to the feeling of Ramadan iftars by prioritizing family dinners every night. These moments ensure everyone at home has a chance to talk and share about their day.

5. Hit play on the lectures 

Learning nourishes your spirituality. Keep listening to your favorite speakers even after Ramadan ends. Listen to stories of the Prophets, Sahaba (RA) – the companions of the Prophet (PBUH), and Quranic commentary.
