We all know that the beautiful month of Ramadan is essentially about generosity, nobility, developing oneself and being more compassionate towards others. In addition to internalizing those meanings, we need to act upon them as well.
Accordingly, we at ProductiveMuslim developed a to-do list that you can use this Ramadan. The purpose is to help you organize yourselves and your time in Ramadan.
The to-do list has regular daily acts, as well as, a recommended special act to explore every day.
You can check the task that you have fulfilled every day and highlight the ones you still want to explore. This might help some of us avoid having wasted time in Ramadan or not knowing what to do with the extra time.
Please feel free to share and/or develop the list as per your needs and circumstances. Also please remember that Ramadan is not about being overwhelmed. Rather it’s about ease and mercy, and as Prophet Muhammad taught us, “the act most pleasing to Allah is that which is done continuously, even if it is small.”

Designed by Aneesah Satriya, who is a Master of Architecture student in the UK, but originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She has an avid interest in crafts, the visual arts and da’wah through social networks. While attending various talks and conferences during her year back home (including a ProductiveMuslim seminar!), she started to “doodle” notes in her sketchbook, with the intention of sharing them with friends who could not make it. Surprisingly, the scanned visual notes became very popular on Facebook and were shared among attendees and non-attendees alike. Aneesah now produces doodles based on ProductiveMuslim articles, and also volunteers to design for Islamographic.com.
