Day By Day And Monthly Planning
Day By Day Planning

In Ramadan, there are blessed minutes that we ought not to miss by focusing on different errands.

- Gap your day into at any rate six parts:
- The morning: suhoor, tahajjud, fajr, discussing the Quran after fajr, istighfar
- Work: Remember, fasting isn’t a reason to be inefficient at work; neither does it legitimize being grumpy in light of the fact that you miss your espresso or cigarette! Focus on dhikr, mainly while waiting in rush hour gridlock, while driving to and from work and so on.
- From asr to maghrib: brief rest, family time: conversation, reciting Qur’an, viewing an educational program, portraying the prophets’ accounts, getting ready for Iftar, some other task you arranged, and so forth.

If not, attempt and make a draft for two days. Making a draft causes you to feel less liable if something sudden occurs. It doesn’t mean you escape your genuine task in any case; you may need to double the effort for the following two days. Spot an X on completed tasks, to give you a feeling of achievement!
