In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
Thank you for your good question. May you have a happy and blessed Ramadan, ameen.
This year, Ramadan arrives while we are going through the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic. We pray to Allah in this blessed time to heal those who are ill, to end the pandemic, and to save us all, ameen.
While we observe social distancing, fully follow the instructions of the public health authorities, and do our part in fighting the spread of COVID-19, we should try our best to make this Ramadan very special. We may consider the following:
1- Plan to make the best of your time while staying home: Pray Taraweeh and congregational prayers with your family. Hold Quran halaqas and educational sessions with your kids. Have good time and enjoy the daily iftar with your family.
2- Ramadan is a time of social solidarity, generosity, and giving back to our society: Let us take care of those who are less fortunate in our society and denote to charitable causes as much as we could.
3- Exchange Ramadan greetings and reminders with your friends and community members through convenient online platforms. You may hold virtual iftars too.
4- Ramadan is the month of the Quran: Give more time to reading and reflecting on the Qur’an.
5- Join online classes of your local masjid: Learn more about fasting, Zakat al-Fitr, and laytul-Qadr.
6- Always pray for the safety and well-being of all, especially at the time of breaking your fast.
May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.
Allah Almighty knows best.
