7 WAYS TO CONNECT WITH YOUR SPOUSE DURING RAMADAN

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (sawm), prayer, reflection and community. It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon. Because the Muslim calendar year is shorter than the Gregorian calendar year, Ramadan begins 10–12 days earlier each year, allowing it to fall in every season throughout a 33-year cycle.

?Pray together.

Wake up and observe some rakahs together before sahoor. If possible, go to the mosque together for taraaweeh or pray at home if there are covid restrictions. Supplicate for each other in your local language.

?Eat together.

There is barakah in suhoor; how much more when you eat together? Better still, eat from the same plate, at the same time – there is love in sharing!

?Read together.

Choose a time for reciting, memorising and studying the meaning of the Qu’ran. You can do this individually, but it feels better when you study together. Select hadiths, stories of the Prophets etc. and discuss the lessons.

?Play together. (How to connect with your spouse during Ramadan)

Ramadan is a time to recharge our faith. But there is room for fun and intimacy. It was stated categorically, just a few verses after Allaah commanded us to fast, that couples can have intimacy during the nights (Qu’ran chapter 2 verse 187). However, care must be taken during the day. The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to kiss his wives while fasting but that’s because he could control his desires. Don’t try it if you can’t control yourself!

?Shop together.

Whether it’s a walk down the street to grab some groceries, or a trip to the market to shop for Eid, accompany each other and connect on the go.

?Cook together.

As you assist each other with the kitchen chores, you will also be able to talk, laugh, and unwind. Plus, the food will be ready in no time.

?Go together.

A big sheikh is coming to town to deliver a lecture? Go together. A friend invited you to his house for iftar? Go together. You want to take advantage of Umrah in Ramadan? Go together (if you can afford the expenses). And yes, you can also go for i’tikaf together; especially where the mosque has adequate facilities for women and children.


O Allah, cover me with Your mercy, grant me success and protection, purify my heart from the darkness of false accusations, O the Merciful to His believing servants.
