1. Alhamdulillah, I’m doing well during Ramadān, although it’s been a bit hectic balancing classes with fasting and other acts of worship. However, Allah has made it manageable, and I’m grateful for His blessings and guidance

2. As we approach the end of this blessed month, here are some general pieces of advice for fellow Muslims:

Reflect on Achievements: Take time to reflect on your spiritual growth and accomplishments during Ramadan. Celebrate your efforts in observing fasting, prayers, and acts of charity.

Maximize Worship: Strive to increase devotion and worship in these final days of Ramadan. Spend extra time in prayer, engage in additional acts of charity, and seek forgiveness for any shortcomings.

Prepare for Eid: Start preparing for Eid al-Fitr by planning celebrations with family and friends, shopping for gifts and new clothes, and making arrangements for communal prayers and gatherings.

Seek Forgiveness: Take advantage of the last days of Ramadan to seek forgiveness from Allah for any sins or mistakes committed during the year. Repent sincerely and strive to improve yourself in the coming months.May Allah accept our fasting and prayers and grant us forgiveness and blessings in this blessed month and beyond.Warm Regards.

1. My experience

 It has not been easy of course. But it is essential to strike a balance between the two. I try to cram as many Ibaadats as I can into my day. I also study the less difficult parts during the day. This gives me enough time to study the more difficult ones at night with a full stomach😅.

2. Advice

The last 10 days of Ramadān are upon us. I hope we all take full advantage of these blessed days. May Allah accept it from us😍.

1. The experience is quite novel being my first in college. There are times you are drained of your last energy but you know you can’t go a day without reading especially now that our incourses are as close as ever. But  Alhamdulillah in all, challenges are meant for humans and they are to be solved. I can see it getting better every new day.

2. Advice- Let’s all make the best use of this Ramadān, especially the last 10 days. It’s a month of multiple blessings and acceptance of prayers. We never know which might be our last. So let’s indulge ourselves in the holy month like this will be our last on the earth. May Allah grant us the best of this world and the hereafter.

One: Alhamdullilah. The glorious month of Ramadān started after my first semester exams and it has been one of the keys to knowing the Almighty better and getting closer to Him. 

Two:Renew your intentions, remember how great the blessings and spiritual rewards are on these 10 holy nights, and think of the forgiveness you will receive on Laylat al-Qadr (the ‘Night of Power’). Trust Allah and don’t let any doubt or selfish thought sully your mind during your worship. May Allah accept it as an act of Ibaadah and make us witness many more of it. 

Abdullah Ibn Abass from Invictus Class

1. We thank God😊. This Ramadan has been filled with me trying to encourage myself to do more even with the reduced zeal experienced in the first set of days.

2. My advice for other Muslims is that as we know the best is saved for the last, we should also allow that reflection in our spiritual activities as the day with the best night is approaching. No matter what happened in the first 2/3rd of Ramadān, that which you seek is still ahead. Allahuma Balighna Laylatul Qadr 🤲.

1. To be honest, it has been very hectic and tiring these past few days because we have to juggle and balance between classes, practicals( particularly dissections) and fasting. But Alhamdulillah, we are surviving and still very much healthy and that is enough to thank Allah. This glorious month is a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity and it is best if one makes the best of it. So we just have to keep putting efforts into all we do and I guess I have been faring a little above average.

2. I will implore us to intensify our acts of Ibaadah, supplicate like never before and make the best of the month( especially these last ten days).  As it is said that these last ten nights are better than a thousand nights, can you imagine how glorious and magnificent that is? Of course, the next thing to do is not to slack but to get back up on our feet and put in more effort, May Allah ease our affairs. Aameen.

One: I’ve been participating in this holy month with dedication and devotion. But I’d say fasting in med school combined with the struggles that come with it isn’t a very funny experience.

Two: My pieces of advice for other Muslims as we approach the end of the blessed month are:

i. Ramadān is a time of spiritual renewal, self-reflection, and strengthening faith. It’s a time to foster your connection with Allah SWT and to increase good deeds. As Ramadān comes to an end, it’s important to maintain the spiritual connection and good habits developed throughout the month.

ii. Focus on maintaining spiritual practices- like prayer and reading the Qur’an, Continue to give charity, Be mindful of the end of the month, Celebrate Eid al-Fitr with loved ones, and give thanks to Allah SWT for the blessings.
