Now that the holy month of Ramadan is coming to an end and only Allah Almighty knows that whether we will be able to see it next year or not. Within the last 10 days of Ramadan, there is a night which is better than thousand months and it is called Laylat-ul-qadr. It is the most blessed night of the year. We Muslims find this special night while in Iteqaaf to maximize our Ibadah. Physical strength and health is therefore very important for observing Iteqaaf in this blessed time. Following are these tips which can keep you strong at night in last ten days of Ramadan:
Do Not Miss Suhoor
We have a habit of consuming lots and lots of food at Iftaar time due to which we usually skip sehri which is not good for our health. We feel pretty nauseated by eating so early in the morning.
Not only Sehri is a blessed meal but it is also very important as it keep us healthy and on our feet for the whole day. Skipping it will make us weak so it is recommended to eat something small rather than leaving it entirely. Some healthy Suhoor examples are as follows:
- Yogurt with fruit and granola
- Oatmeal with fruit
- Boiled egg and brown bread
Drink Plenty of Water
It is very important to drink plenty of water to keep our body hydrated especially in this hot weather. As summer Ramadan is very long so it is always recommended to drink at least three glasses of water with your meal. Eat those fruits that are full of water such as strawberries, watermelon, grapefruit, cucumbers and raspberries. These fruits have plenty of fruits. Ensure you have a water bottle with you when you go for Taraweeh.
Smart Napping During Itekaf
We usually stay awake throughout the night in last ten days of Ramadan because of Iteqaaf. In order to be active for Laylat-ul-Qadr, one should take a nap in a day. This is very essential to keep us alert and awake at night to worship Allah Almighty. Your nap time will vary depending on your daytime schedule howbeit the advised time is after Zuhar prayer according to Sunnah.
