How can I live when I'm alone year round?
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that after Ramadan, pretty much the rest of the year many people forget about the objective of Ramadan. So if you want to take some of the benefits of the Ramadan atmosphere into your life, there's no doubt that you have to go back to the objective that you were trying to fulfill in the month of Ramadan. What was the objective law Allah contact upon so that you may gain God consciousness so that you may gain tafawa? How did we gain up throughout the month of Ramadan during these nights of Ramadan and so on and so forth, we find one of the most important things very clearly is fasting.

So one of the most important advices aside from the extra prayers Cleon will lay in and aside from the routine of going to the masjid and the congregation's, one of the most important things is continuous fasting. So you can find For example, some people are fasting three days every month and for them this routine is bringing them back to the objective of Ramadan, you find others taking it a step further fasting every Monday or every Thursday, you find some people fasting every other day and so on and so forth.

year, the night of power later today other than shooting it being important to ought to make for the rest of the year as well.

Try to find some kind of consistent knowledge regimen
so that you are growing in your faith and returning back to that atmosphere of growth in every area in sha Allah and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who are always returning back to the objectives of Ramadan and Allah knows best
