Ramadan Prep Events

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

For those of you who’d like to give themselves an iman boost, here are some Ramadan Prep events:

[Note: I didn’t mention some “famous” prep events due to various reasons.]

Completely related question: Why does everyone always wait until a week before Ramadan to do these prep events? Isn’t that pretty late???


1) Knowledge International University is offering two FREE courses.

The first is entitled the “Fiqh of Fasting” and is going to start at the end of July.

The second is called “Good Manners” and is going to be taught in August.

For more information, you may keep a close eye on their Facebook page.

Why did I start with this event? Because unlike all the others, it is taught by a real scholar.

And no, I’m not putting anybody down. I’m just tired of every Muhammad, Abdullah and Ali being called a scholar.

[Even I have been called a scholar. Thrice!!! Subhan Allah, if an ignorant person like me can be called a scholar, then that means the Muslim ummah (nation) is in serious trouble.]

Home Sweet Home (Dubai)

1) Al Huda Sisters has a really nice bunch of classes (for sisters) geared towards preparing one for Ramadan.

You can find all the information on their blog.

The classes are on Wiziq as well (only for sisters) but you need to contact them for more information.

2) Dr. Muhammad Al-Jibaly is in town (yes, that Muhammad Al-Jibaly) for a Ramadan prep event called “The Essence of Ramadan”.

It’s this Friday (July 29th), insha-Allah. You can find out more here.

3) Kalemah Centre is offering a bunch of Ramadan prep lectures in various masjids around Dubai.

Most of these lectures are in Urdu though. The schedule can be found here.

4) Al Manar Quran Study Centre is offering a “Ramadan Majlis” i.e. a bunch of lectures during Ramadan.

The lectures are in English, Tagalog*, Urdu and Malayalam.

[*No, I don’t know if Brother Omar Penalbar is coming. The last Ramadan he came, about 125 Phillipinos became Muslims in one night, subhan Allah!]

Here’s the website.

This is a great chance for everybody because:

2) The 40 hadeeth is one of the greatest books out there. It’s only when one studies it in detail that one realises how comprehensive it is.

3) It’s free.
