ProductiveRamadan To-Do List!
We at ProductiveMuslim developed a to-do list that you can use this Ramadan to help you maximize the use of your precious Ramadan time
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 exciting list gives you ideas of good deeds you can do in your extra time as well as deeds you may have missed out on doing for a very long time!
The ProductiveRamadan Ultimate Taskinator
The Ultimate Ramadan Taskinator allows you to list and accomplish 3 to 5 of your most important tasks everyday in the four areas of productivity: physical, spiritual and social. Using the Ramadan Taskinator is extremely easy and simple: you just book times for your most important tasks by writing them down in the appropriate time block of the day. Once you’ve placed the most important tasks in place, you can fill out the rest of your schedule for the day.
ProductiveRamadan Daily Planner
By now you’ve seen the Productive Ramadan Taskinator and, hopefully, jotted down your schedule for the month. Now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty view of each day. This is where the Productive Ramadan Daily Planner comes in.
Using this worksheet, your salah gets top priority on your schedule. In keeping with the aim of a Productive Muslim, we try to earn barakah in our activities by praying at the allotted times and not being engaged in anything else when it’s time for salah. Alongside the schedule, this worksheet also contains brief and useful reminders to help you while planning.
We recommend working on the Productive Ramadan Daily Planner during the previous night, so that you wake up with your schedule in place. All you have to do is follow the list in sequence and feel an empowering sense of accomplishment as you tick items off!
