Ramadan Resources Part 3

 Hello Everyone,

Ramadan Mubarak!

For Muslims around the world Ramadan is a blessed month where we fast, read Qur'an and ask Allah (SWT) for guidance. It's a month where our good deeds are multiplied and we try to become closer with our faith. So, I thought I'd do another post about resources you can use to make the most of this month. 

If you'd like more resources, check out my Ramadan Resources post and Ramadan Resources Part 2 post

1. YouTube Videos To Watch:

YouTube is a platform that everyone uses. Each year during Ramadan Islamic YouTube channels create videos related to Islam. Here are some you might enjoy watching:

Mufti Menk's YouTube Channel:

Islamic Scholar Mufti Menk has a number of great videos about Islam on his YouTube channel. The topics range from marriage, Jummah Khutbahs, faith, charity and more. He even has a 30 Day 30 Habits Video to help you with any bad habits you have. 

This year he has a Reviving The Spirit Series. Here's the first video about the Essence of Ramadan:

Another series available this year is the Supplications from Revelation series. Here's the first video about Supplications from the Qur'an:

Yaqueen Institute YouTube Channel:

Yaqeen Institute creates well-researched Islamic content for young Muslims. The topics can relate from Mental Health, Jummah Khutbahs, Tahhajud Prayer, Dua's and more. They recently uploaded a 5 Taraweeh Tips To Make The Most of Ramadan video. Every Ramadan they have a specific Islamic topic they make a series. This year it's a Jannah: Home At Last Series. Here's the first episode: 

Another series they have is the Qur'an 30 for 30, a series dedicated to the Qur'an. This year Qur'an 30 for 30 season 4 is about the world view of the Qur'an, how we view it in regards to ourselves and guidance on our lives. Here is episode 1:

2. TikTok Videos To Watch:

TikTok is one of the most popular Social Media platforms people use. One of the benefits of the app is that you can save videos onto your phone. So, here are some TikTok videos I recommend you watch about Ramadan. 

Tips for Ramadan; 

The videos below are tips on how to spiritually make the most of this Ramadan.

Dua's To Make:

Muslim Cheat Codes:

Alongside these videos I found one titled "Some Cheat Codes for Muslims". However the video was mostly text on an image, with a nasheed in the background. So, I've listed the tips below:

  • Reciting Surah Mulk everyday before bed will save you from the punishment of the grave
  • Reciting Aytul Kursi after Salah will guarantee you Jannah
  • Reading Surah Ikhlas is equivalent to reading one third of the Qur'an. Read it 3 times everyday and you'll be rewarded as if you read the whole Qur'an
  • Reciting "Subhan Allah Wa bihamdi" will get all of your sins forgiven, even if you have as many as the foam from the sea
  • Reciting "Allahhuma inni as-alukah al-jannah Allahhumma al-trini min an-nar" 7 times everyday will protect you from the hellfire

3. Muslim Book Recommendations: 

I've seen a view videos on TikTok about Muslim book recommendations for Ramadan, either about Islam or written by Muslim authors. Below is a list of the books that were available as a Kindle and on Audible.

4. Podcast Recommendations: 

A TikTok video came on my feed which recommended some podcasts to listen to, I thought they'd be useful if you wanted to increase your Islamic knowledge this year. These are the podcasts mentioned in the video:

5. Resources For Women:

In Islam women can't fast, pray or touch the Qur'an when on their period. For a lot of women this can be frustrating during Ramadan because they feel you can't make the most of the month. In reality, that's not the case, here's a video explaining why. Both Amaliah and Seekers Guidance have articles about 10 things you can do this Ramadan whilst menstruating. You can also use the following to benefit yourself:

  • Launch Good Ramadan Challenge: You can use this to automatically donate money to various charities for the whole month, or just during the last 10 days. You have the option of selecting charities yourself, or having the platform pick for you.
  • Listening To or Reading the Qur'an on Your Phone: Although you can't touch the Qur'an when on your period, you can still recite it. We use our phones all the time, so it makes sense there are Qur'an readings apps too. Quranly is an app you can use to motivate yourself to continuously read the Qur'an. It's available on IOS and Android. Another app you can use is Qur'an. Al Qur'an (Tafsir and by Word) available on IOS and Android, and Tarteel are good alternative apps to use too. 
  • Alchemiya: If you have kids, or still want to be able to watch TV this month. This platform has Muslim TV shows and movies you and your family could enjoy. They even have a 15% Ramadan discount.

I hope you found all these resources useful. May Allah (SWT) accept all our efforts this Ramadan. Feel free to share this post with anyone you know who would benefit.

  1. Surah Yaseen is a remarkable chapter of the Holy Quran that contains a powerful and profound message. It emphasizes the importance of pondering over the Quran and understanding its message, reminds the readers of the Day of Judgment, and stresses the oneness of Allah. Many Muslims around the world recite Surah Yaseen regularly, believing that it brings numerous blessings and rewards. Its universal message of guidance, hope, and mercy is relevant to all humanity and serves as a reminder of the importance of faith and good deeds.
