Do’s and Dont’s in Ramadan


A very blessed Ramadan to all of you. may Allah SWT accept our fasts and give us the patience to guard our fasts and implement our good deeds not only in this month but the next Ameen.

Here is a list of Do’s and Dont’s in Ramadan. I have Shortened the list as it was pretty big but you can still refer to the longer version too =]


DO’s :-

  1. It is important to make the intention of obligatory (fard) fast before Fajr time.( AbuDawood)Eating before fajr (Taking Suhur ) is a recommended sunnah

    •The Prophet said, “Take Suhur, as there is a blessing in it.” (Bukhari)
    •If the Fajr Adhaan starts while you are eating sehri, instead of leaving what you were eating, you should quickly eat it.( Abu Dawood)

    •It is a sunnah to recite the Quran and to revise it in Ramadan. ( Agreed Upon)

  2. Giving charity generously in the month of Ramadan is the sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhe Wasallam.(Agreed Upon)•The masnoon rakaat of taraweeh is 8, however since it is a nafil prayer the number of rakaat can be increased or decreased.(Agreed Upon)

    Green Zone for Fasting I.E things that DO NOT break the fast

    •Due to extreme heat, the fasting person is allowed to take a shower and rinse his mouth with water. This does not break the fast.(Abu Dawood)
    •Eating out of forgetfulness does not break the fast. But as soon as a the person realizes that he/she was fasting, then the food in the mouth should be immediately spitted out. (Bukhari)

    •There is no harm in swallowing the saliva while fasting.(Bukhari)

    •Applying kohl in the eyes does not break the fast.(Bukhari) * Good news for us Kajal freaks eh ;p*

    •If the need arises, the food can be tasted (for salt etc), but it should be tasted by placing it at the edge of the tongue. But utmost care should be taken that it should not reach the throat.( Bukhari)

    •Using siwaak while fasting is proven from the sunnah. ( Sahih Bukhari)


Dont’s in Ramadan

  • • If nose drops are used while fasting and if they reach the throat or the stomach, then the fast is broken. (Bukhari)
  • •An injection that does not nourish and its purpose is not to provide energy or nourishment but it is only used as a medicine, then such an injection is allowed while fasting. However if the injection is the type that provides nourishment to sustain the body without food and drink then such an injection breaks the fast.
  • •While fasting it is not allowed to sniff the water too high in the nose that there may be danger that the water might reach the throat.(Tirmizi)
  • •A person who intentionally eats or drinks something while fasting, then he should sincerely repent and make up for the fast.
  • Fasting person should not misbehave or fight
  • •Allah’s Apostle said, “Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fast should avoid sexual relations with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, ‘I am fasting.” (Bukhari)
  • Fasting person should not lie or commit evil deeds
  • •The Prophet said, “Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)” (Bukhari)
  • •Backbiting, lying, fighting, abusing, profanities and arguing corrupts the fast.(Bukhari)
  • • Cracking dirty jokes, obscene vulgar actions, immoral behaviour and conversations on vulgar topics are all forbidden in the state of fasting. (Ibn Khuzaima) (such things are forbidden even under normal conditions but such deeds while fasting corrupts the fast.)
