Ramadan 2022 is just around the corner! And as the holy month approaches, we need to be ready and prepare for all that the month has to offer. From the highly anticipated, exciting Iftar gatherings (and feasts!) to heading for terawih prayers, we can't wait for the month to arrive 🤗And to help you out with Ramadan 2022, HHWT's gathered all the information you need to experience this year's fasting month!

Ramadan 2022

1. When Is Ramadan 2022?

Ramadan 2022 is happening on 3 April and ending on 2 May 2022. (P.S. While we're here, this means Hari Raya is happening on 3 May 2022 😉) Mark your calendars! P.S. Did you know that the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) decided to revise the dates for Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Haji in 2022 last year? Here's what you need to know and how it may possibly affect you!

2. Niat Ramadan

ramadan 2022
Between preparing ourselves physically and spiritually for this blessed month, it is very important that we don't forget to make niat (intentions) before fasting! When you make an intention before every deed, it is a reminder to your inner self and a confirmation that we seek pleasure of Allah (s.w.t) in all our actions. On top of that, setting your intention for fasting also brings you closer to Allah (s.w.t) and helps you to remember the purpose of Ramadan. As Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. said: "Whoever does not have the intention to fast before dawn, then there is no fasting for him." So, we're here to remind you to make your niat and recite the duas for the fasting month 🤗 Check out this guide on when and how to do niat for Ramadan!

3. Terawih Prayers & Worship

A good part of Ramadan is worship. Many of us set the best intentions for Ramadan. But often times, when responsibilities pile on, it can be difficult to make Ramadan more meaningful. If you're struggling with increasing your acts of worship during the month, check out these guides!

4. Sahur & Iftar Recipes

And of course, we can't have Ramadan without the delicious sahur and iftar feasts! Between looking for yummy sahur recipes, to delighting in Iftar gatherings, you might feel a little pressure searching for the right dishes, recipes and meals to serve or enjoy. Well no worries! HHWT is home to a myriad of sahur and Iftar guides. For anyone who is new to the term or is in need of a little refresher, sahur (which is sometimes written as suhoor or sahoor) is the pre-dawn meal Muslims eat before the day’s fast begins. While it’s not obligatory for you to have sahur (it’s a sunnah, after all!), don’t underestimate the importance of it as it is a meal that is filled with blessings.
