7 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Ramadan

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year for Muslims, a month of Peace and Blessings. This month has a lot of importance in Islam because it is the month when Quran was revealed to our Prophet (PBUH).

In the Blessed Month of Ramadan, our hearts cry with joy and our souls warm with pleasure thanks to the opportunity that we are given to become closer to our Lord. The Shayateen (devils) are chained up, the Gates of Heaven and opened while the Gates of Hell are closed, and the rewards for performing every good deed are multiplied many fold.


Here is a list of 7 easy ways to attain more rewards this Ramadan.


1. Prayers

Salah is the second pillar of Islam and also the major form of worship. Salah is obligatory on every Muslim and should offer it five times a day with no excuse for its specific time. 

Allah Almighty says in the Noble Quran: 

“O you who believe! Respond to (the call of) Allah and His Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.”

(Quran, 8:24)


2. Quran:

It is important to note that our relationship with the Qur’an in this month should not be limited to just the nightly Tarawih prayers. We must devote ourselves to studying the Qur’an outside of prayer as well.

“Recite the Qur’an, for, on the Day of Resurrection, it shall come as an intercessor for its companion.” [Muslim]

In one of Hadith of Prophet (SAW) there is an explanation of getting rewards on every letter that someone recited from Holy Quran in these words:

“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward, and this reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that ‘Alif, Laam, Meem’ (a combination of letters frequently mentioned in the Holy Quran) is a letter, rather I am saying that ‘Alif’ is a letter, ‘Laam’ is a letter and ‘Meem’ is a letter.”(Tirmidhi).


So try to increase the recitation of Holy Quran if you want to get the rewards in abundant from Allah Almighty.

3. Tahajjud Prayer

Tahajjud namaz is one of the non-obligatory prayers which one should pray in the later part of the night after getting some sleep. 

“And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station.” 

(Quran, 17: 79)


Muslims have the opportunity every night to ask Allah (swt) for their wishes and they will be granted.

Prophet Muhammad  (PBUH) said: “During the night there is a time when the Muslim does not ask for the good of this world and the Hereafter but it will be given to him, and that happens every night.”

4. Charity

Sadaqah and charity are financial forms of worship. 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

Allah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’” 

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5073; Muslim, 993. 

Giving charity protect us from the hellfire. it eases the hardship of the day of judgement. 

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said,

“Protect yourself from hell-fire even by giving a piece of date as charity.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

5. Astaghfar

Astaghfirullah is the act of seeking forgiveness from Allah. It is a door of mercy through which you turn towards the right path. 

And whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

Surat An-Nisa 4:110

A person who constantly and regularly does Istighfar will be forgiven by Allah Almighty. Allah will not punish the people who always do Istighfar.

Allah says in Holy Quran:

“But not is (for) Allah that He punishes them while you (are) among them, and not is Allah the One Who punishes them while they seek forgiveness.”

(Quran, 8:33)


6. Supplication (DUA)

Supplication is the best and most tried-and-tested means of beseeching in the court of Almighty Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, gaining nearness to Him, becoming worthy of His favors and bounties and receiving the glad-tidings of forgiveness and absolution. Offering Dua has also been a regular practice of the Holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ and the pious predecessors. In truth, Dua is not just a form of worship but the brain, core and essence of worship and a great blessing of Almighty Allah for his sinful bondmen. The true value of offering Dua may be realized by the following verses of the Noble Quran in which

Almighty Allah عَزَّ وَجَلَّ declares:

“I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he calls on Me.”

(Baqarah 2:186)

Making Dua in this holy month is one of the major deeds Muslims do to invoke Allah and seek His blessings. Therefore, besides the general Ramadan Duas, there are other supplications that Muslims can recite while fasting.

7. Kindness

Allah  sent the beloved Rasool صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ   full of mercy and kindness for all the worlds. As He says in Quran:

“And We did not send you (O beloved Prophet) but as a mercy for all the worlds.”

 (Al ambiaa, 107)

In Ramadan the smallest act of kindness releases tremendous spiritual bounties.

Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said,

“Every act of kindness is a Sadaqa (charity)”

(Bukhari, Muslim).

In Ramadan the smallest act of kindness releases tremendous spiritual bounties.
