Ramadan Planner: Last 10 day's

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah! 
Wow, can you believe we are in the last 10 day's of Ramadan already?! I can't, it feel's like the time has flown past in a blink of an eye.
SubhanAllah!
So, there's no time for idle chit chat, I know you need to get back to your islamic duties ASAP. I just wanted to share this handy planner with you all to help us soak every last drop of goodness out of Ramadan possible! ...because let's be honest, we all miss it once it's gone.


Ramadan Planner 

1. Pray 5 Salah in the Masjid: especially Fajr and Isha (for women to pray in it's earliest time at home, if preferred)
2. To avoid wasting time with friends and using Internet/TV/Mobile
3. To do all actions according to Sunnah (i.e. eat, sleep, use miswaak etc)
4. Adhkaar (words of remembrance) after every Fard Salah*
5. Perform all Sunnah and Nawafil Salah
(optional Prayer i.e. Ishraaq, Duha and Tahajjud)
6. Spending an hour in the Masjid/room in seclusion (individual worship)
7. Morning and evening Isti'adha and Adhkaar*
8. To recite a minimum 1 Juz of the Qur'an (or specify personal target)
9. Supplicating (making Du'a) at the times of acceptance*
10. Sadaqah (initiating Salam, to smile, to spend what you love)
11. To learn something new (e.g. Quran, Hadith, Du'a etc)
12. Showing outstanding character and support to family and others
13. Guarding the Tongue (from lying, backbiting and futile Speech etc)
14. Guarding the Eyes and being Modest (in appearance and character)
15. Maintaining concentration and devotion in Salah (Khushoo')
16. add your own goal!


Instructions: 
Print if off, jot it down and please rate each act on a daily basis between 1 - 5; 1 being extremely poor and 5 being outstanding effort. 

* Adhkaar after Fard Salah: to recite Ayatul Kursi, including the last 3 Surah's of the Qur'an and the Tasbeeh Fatimi; to recite "Subhaan Allah" 33 times, "Alhamdulillah" 33 times and Allahu Akbar 33/4 times (to equal 100)
* Isti'adha means to seek protection. There are many Du'as from the Qur'an and Hadith for seeking the protection of Allah from the Hell fire, shaitaan and other evils or calamities. (refer to Hisnul Muslim or Fortress of a Muslim

* Adhkaar: Optional Dhikr (suppliccation) chunks i.e.100x Shahada, 100x Istigfaar and 100x Darood Sharif. 
Note: specify your own amount, it is known that Abu Hurayra (ra) would make tasbeeh of 12000 Daily!
* When Du'as are accepted: 
When it rains, 
Between Adhan & Iqamah, 
After fard salah, 
In sujood, 
Midnight and the last portion of the night, 
When oppressed, 
Whilst travelling, 
After wudhu 
Du'a for his brother in his absence.
Why do this Daily 'Ibaadah Planner?
The main purpose of this daily 'Ibaadah Planner is to help one to get into the habit of these highly regarded acts of worship, and to steadily improve on them until one reaches a good level of consistency which will inshAllah result in improvement of your Imaan and relationship with Allah (swt) 

How long shall I do this for?
In order for one to really benefit from this 'Ibaadah planner he/she must set a duration (i.e. 1 month) with a personal target in mind to improve themselves by monitoring their acts of 'Ibaadah on a daily basis before he/she retires to sleep; this is known as Muhaasabah (to take account of ones actions)

What attitude shall I maintain throughout each day?
When you wake up in the morning, do not expect to see the evening, live as though today is all that you have. Yesterday has passed with its good and evil while tomorrow has not yet arrived. 
Your life span is but one day, as if you were born in it and will die at the end of it. During this day you should
pray with a wakeful heart, recite the Qur'an with understanding and remember Allah SWT with sincerity. 
Organize the hour's of each day so that you make years out of minute's and month's out of second's. 
Profit from every moment of your day by developing your personality, expanding your abilities and purifying your deed's. 
Engrave onto your heart one phrase: Today is my only day.
