It is an excellent idea to find a partner as you get prepared for Ramadhaan. The “meet-up” does not have to be in person; it can be over the telephone or internet (thru emails, chat, etc.).
The most important thing, is to find a willing buddy — or two or three. This helps people get motivated and focused. So, invite someone over to talk about and plan your Ramadhan!
Here is what one sister did:
“. . . so last night I met up with a dear sister and we discussed our preparation for this coming Ramadan. We discussed preparation before Ramadan starts and our goals during Ramadan. I felt that it was extremely productive and I feel so ready for Ramadan now…alhamdulillah. So, I thought I’d share what we discussed with you all so that it may insha’Allah give you ideas for your own Ramadan preparation. “
So, plan that meet-up: get out that address book and a calendar! Take your Ramadhan Control Journal along.
If you do a meet-up with some friends, drop a comment about how it went!
