Preparing for this Ramadan

In this edition of the LaunchGood newsletter, we shared our top five strategies to gear up for a rewarding Ramadan ahead. Let’s delve deeper into the preparation to ensure you experience a spiritually enriching and impactful month.

1. Curate Content Playlists

Ramadan is a time to nourish your soul, which involves engaging with spiritual content while avoiding material that does not contribute positively. Consider immersing yourself in Islamic podcasts, thought-provoking lectures, and Quran recitations that resonate deeply. To kickstart your spiritual journey, organize playlists of content beforehand. Trust us, having these ready when the month begins makes you feel one step ahead

Here are some suggestions to help you kickstart:


  • The Digital Sisterhood
  • Sacred Text Messages by Hamza Yusuf
  • Yaqeen Institute
  • Sunnah Stream
  • Quran in English

2. Plan out your desired behavior changes this Ramadan

Ramadan isn't just about fasting; it's like a boot camp for your Islamic growth and improvement! These 30 days have the power to make or break habits. So, why not come out of this Ramadan as the best version of yourself? Start by setting Islamic goals for positive behaviors you want to start, and negative ones that you want to stop. Consider these your Ramadan resolutions.

Document two lists of Ramadan habits on paper: one comprising habits to develop and the other, habits to break. For each habit, outline your reasons for change and identify typical situations or times when these habits manifest. Then, devise an action plan.

For instance:

Habit: Stop delaying salah.

Why Change: It's encouraged to pray promptly, and delaying salah sometimes results in missing it entirely.

Usual Scenario: This usually happens around isha, I feel tired and like I have more time to use, so I delay my salah with no real reason.

Action Plan: Set alarms to remind myself of each salahs start time, prepare wudhu beforehand, and commit to praying immediately upon the alarm's activation or with others where possible.

This introspective process aids in understanding motivations and paves the way for significant change, utilizing Ramadan as a 30-day challenge to steer you toward a more fulfilling path.
