Ramzan is here again in all its glory, bringing with it a lightness and a sense of calmness. During this Holy month every year, people want to stop and self-reflect, strengthen their bond with their Creator by reciting the Quran, offering Namaz, or listening to informative podcasts on Islam & practice empathy.
However, Ramzan can be a busy time for all of us. Amidst preparing for Sehris and Iftaris, Namaaz, managing work or studies, and trying to stay productive, we barely get time for ourselves no matter how much we long for it. However, listening to a Ramzan podcast while you do all your daily chores can be your best bet to get all your work done and self-reflect at the same time. Here are some we recommend:
1. Omer Suleiman
Omar Suleiman is an American Muslim scholar and also the founder of ‘Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research.’ Each year, he does a 30-part Ramzan series in which he talks about and elaborates on a certain Islamic topic. This year the series will be called ‘The Day of Judgement’ and according to the description on Instagram, “It paints a picture as to how the consequential day will unfold. It also introduces practical ways to improve in this world to prepare ourselves for a better outcome before we stand before Allah.”
