Preparing for Ramadan at home
Welcome Ramadan to your home
Ramadan is here and we wanted to help you get ready at home. These are some of our favorite suggestions for how you can plan for the blessed month.
1. Start decorating early
It’s never too early to start putting up Ramadan decorations. If you have kids at home ask them to help put up the decorations. You might even encourage them to create handmade banners and posters to welcome this holy month.
2. Stock up on the essentials
Make sure your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry are stacked with the things you need for suhoor and iftar. Filling them up now will let you focus less on last-minute trips to the grocery store while fasting and more on your reflections.
3. Make space for worship
Take advantage of this spiritual month by setting up a specific quiet place at home for worship. It can be a room or a nice corner where you want to spend nights praying, reciting Quran, remembering the Creator, and doing supplications.
4. Practice like the Sahaba (RA) – the companions of the Prophet (PBUH)
Ramadan during the Sahaba’s time was not focused on iftars and gatherings. It was all about the Holy Quran. Remember this is the month when the first verse of the Holy Quran was revealed. It’s a chance to reconnect to the Words of your Creator.
5. Renew your intentions
Remember that everything from prayer to charity starts with your intention. Make sure you start every action with the goal of pleasing your Creator and expect your reward in the hereafter.
As we welcome Ramadan this year, we’re reminded of the blessings of our homes. Since 2002 Guidance Residential has helped over 28,000 families celebrate Ramadan in their new homes. We are so thankful to be part of these celebrations.
