Meet-Ups Help with Ramadhan Prep
Find a partner to meet with 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, plan that meet-up: get out that address book, a calendar and some paper!
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. “

QUESTION & ANSWER_____________________________________________________
Question: What is the ruling on a fasting person cooling himself down?
Answer: It is permissible for a fasting person to cool himself down, and there is no objection to it, for the Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam used to pour water over his head due to heat or thirst and he was fasting , and Ibn ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with them, used to wet his garment when he was fasting in order to alleviate the excessive heat and thirst. And the wetness has no effect, because in such cases water does not reach the stomach.
