In the name of Allāh, we begin with the praise of Allāh and we send salāh and salām upon the messenger of Allāh may Allāh shower His Mercy and blessings upon him and on his family, his companions and all those that follow in their footsteps. May Allāh keep us among the guided and guide to His light those who have strayed.


Allāhumma la sahla illa ma jaaltahu sahla, wa anta taj-alul hazna idha shita sahla


Meaning: O Allāh! There is nothing easy except what You make easy, and You make the difficult easy if it be Your Will


As each and every Muslim knows, his purpose on this earth is to worship Allāh. And it is from Allāhs mercy that he has spread out the obligations set on us throughout the day, week or even the year. If it was a requirement to worship Allāh at only ONE dedicated time many of us would not be able to do so.


Research suggests that on average a person will spend 25 years of his life sleeping, 10 years working and more worryingly 9.1 years watching television. The question we need to ask is how much does Allāh require us to worship Him?


If we were to estimate how much time a person would spend just praying the obligatory prayers in his lifetime it amounts in total to just

1.3 years of our whole lives! And yet we still complain its too much!


From this perspective some may consider it a mercy from Allāh. But if one was to think about the blessed month of Ramadān and the rewards attached to it some of us would wish it was more than a month so we could spend more time in worship and gaining reward.


Many of us know the rewards attached to this blessed month.


Its enough for us to mention the greatest miracle and blessing, a guidance for all mankind, and the Book by which we live our lives;


Voluntary acts of worship are meant to STRENGTHEN our obligatory acts even more not weaken or diminish them.

Once we understand this we must realise that Ramadān is a blessing that must be taken advantage of when it comes around  as not only is it an obligation upon us and not voluntary, but its the most blessed time of the year.


There have been some articles by educational associations discussing the issue of examinations during the Islamic month of Ramadān and what can be done to help the students during this period when they abstain from food and drink for a large portion of the day. Some of these have stated that its permissible Islamically to eat and drink if it will affect their study, revision or exams.


As Muslims it is an obligation upon the one who has reached the age of puberty and is sane to perform the fasts of this blessed month. Each act of worship has its own difficulty and hardships attached to

it. To say that certain acts of worship can be dropped due to their difficulty is like saying someone can stop going to work or school if he feels tired.


In fact, even when many of us are very hungry we STILL decide to go to work or school/college/uni and we may not end up eating for the whole day anyway.


Having said this, from the Mercy of Allāh (and this seems to be an on- going theme in this article without it intending to be) is that in cases

so that when it comes to the crunch they’ll be ready physically, mentally and also spiritually?


Below are 7 ways to prepare for exams in Ramadān.


·         Having the right intention when fasting. We are fasting for the Hereafter and its rewards not for a slimmer look post Ramadān or to detox the body even though these are secondary benefits to fasting.

·         Prioritising whats important. Those who prioritise work and school will wake up for them with ease but they’ll find it difficult to wake up for the Salāh. When we ourselves give something its importance then it will automatically trump everything  else in our lives.

·         Start performing fasts WAY before Ramadān. The recommended

·         fasts which the Prophet  would do on a regular basis were

·         Mondays & Thursdays, the 13th, 14th & 15th of each month and

·         other recommended times.

·         Revising way ahead of time little by little up until exam time and

·         not cramming last minute. The Prophet  told us of consistent

·         acts of worship being more beloved to Allāh even if theyre less

·         because theyre more fruitful in the long run.

·         Patience and perseverance. Allāh has made reward conditional upon the one who does good deeds and is patient:

·         Except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds; those will have forgiveness and great reward. (Hud:11)


    Create a realistic schedule. When are you going to sleep/eat/ study/relax? Once youve organized your time than theres less risk of you wasting it or tiring yourself out.

·      Remember to allow time for relaxation,  health, exercise, and spending time with family or friends. Try not to over-commit.

·         The Prophet  once advised Handhalah (r), An hour and an

·         hour. Meaning divide your time appropriately.


·         Muslims must learn to adapt to the conditions they are living in no matter what country, climate or environment theyre in while at the same time not jeopardising their faith. We must not set a dangerous precedent for those who come after us, while at the same time ensuring the health and safety of the Muslims.


·         May Allah make all our Muslim brothers and sisters successful in this life and the next.
