Ramadan Plan: How to Prepare Daily Action Plan For Ramadan

Ramadan goals 



Ramadan goals basically include how much Quran you will read, how you can improve your prayers, what good deeds can take you close to Allah and what are some small daily tasks that will get you rewarded big time if you have the right intention. Just like we make advance preparations for every major occurrence in our lives, Ramadan also deserves the same level of preparation, goal-setting, and enthusiasm.

With the passage of each day of Ramadan, we get a shortage of time to do so many things that we had planned. So instead of regretting for the things that you could have done during the month of blessing, you can plan your month by allocating time for each goal for each day.



How to Prepare Daily Action Plan For Ramadan


Ramadan is a major event for Muslims all over the world and just like any other event, it is best to prepare for it in advance with a daily action plan. The planning requires goals of education and thoughtful spiritual experience. To avoid disappointment and frustration at the end of the month, a daily action plan shall be devised to get the best out of Ramadan.

As the Prophet (PBUH) has narrated that the value of any action is dependent upon the intention. A person gets a reward for its intention as narrated in (Bukhari Shareef). In Islam intention has supreme importance, so during Ramadan’s first night plan your month with good intentions and make a daily plan to stay on track for the whole month.

If you intend to perform all the good deed in the Ramadan planner but are unable to do it, Allah will reward you for your intention as if you have performed the good deed.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran that the days of Ramadan are numbered; it is so true as the Ramadan truly flies by. You cannot meet your goals until you have a complete action plan. The action plan shares a beautiful Hadith of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) as a daily reminder.





Ramadan Action Plan

If you tick mark the salah you have offered each day, it will give you a renewed enthusiasm to keep doing it. Also, encourage your children to join you when you are offering Taraweeh and Tahajud prayer.

 

Allah listens directly to the Dua that is made by the Muslims during the month of Ramadan and Allah also loves those who pray for others before themselves.
