DOMESTIC RAMADHAN____________________________________________

[♦]  Menu Planning
Planning meals a week in advance helps you focus on worship, stay organized, and more. Use this newly updated weekly Menu Planning form (pdf)
Also, I like to use a blank 30-day calendar to fill in the meats I plan to cook. This can be filled in for an entire month or for a week at a time. Print Blank Calendar Here (pdf).

[♦] Automotive Care for Ramadhan: Oil Change
Have you noticed how hot it is outside? You car certainly has. Make sure your car is at the proper fluid levels. If you did not get your oil changed before Ramadhan, take the time to do so this week.

RAMADHAN FOOD & HEALTH_____________________________________________________________ 

[♦]  Teflon Cookware
Teflon that has been damaged or overheated can leach toxins. Use cast iron instead; it is naturally non-stick. Perhaps one of your Ramadhan goals could be to purchase cast iron cookware for two households: your own kitchen and for another family who cannot afford to do so.

[♦] Green Goals for Ramadhan
In America, a typical household will waste about 474 pounds of food each year. The solution is to implement menu planning, buying only enough fresh fruits and vegetables to last a few days, and to avoid impulse shopping.

After you’ve completed your weekly menu, make a shopping list based on the meals listed on the menu.

Pre-planned meals and shopping when you are not hungry help curb impulse purchases.

Also, use one of these Free Printables stationery that says “I Need to Purchase” and only buy the things you really need;

[] FAQ Fasting Shower, Rinsing Mouth [ Minutes]


[ Question: What is the ruling on a fasting person using an inhaler for breathing problems, and does it break the fast?

[ Answer:  This spray is vaporised and does not reach the stomach, so in that case, we say that there is no objection to using it when you are fasting, and it will not cause you to break your fast, because as we have said, none of its particles enter the stomach. Since it is something that is defused and vaporised, and it disappears, then none of it reaches the stomach, therefore it is permissible for you to use it when you are fasting and the fast is not invalidated by it.

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen

[] Question: Does vomiting corrupt the fast?

[]  Answer:Many things happen to the fasting person that he does not intend, such as wounds or nosebleeds or vomiting or water going into his throat or gasoline fumes going into his throat, all against his will. Thus, all of these matters do not corrupt the fast. The is due to the Prophets statement: Whoever is overcome by vomiting, he does not have to make up for the day of fasting, and whoever makes himself vomit, he must make up for the day of fasting.[ Abu Dawud no. 2380. At-Tirmithi no. 720 and Ibn Majah no. 1676.]
