Assalamo Alaikom

At the start of the best month of the year, it's important to remember that fasting is not meant for us to be hungry and thirsty for 30 days, but it's meant to build God-consciousness, (Taqwa), inside us.

By knowing that God sees each move we make, and abstaining from food and drink during the day is a good reminder that we should fear God all year round and be conscious of His presence

The Muslim American Society (MAS) produced a series of videos titled (In The Shade of Ramadan). This first video is by Imam Suhaib Webb titled (Checking-in to Camp Taqwa):

Best wishes for a blessed month of Ramadan to all brothers and sisters.

Ameen

You're welcome sister
 
This is a second talk by Sheikh Suhaib Webb is titled "Du'a: Supplication"
 
 
Increasing supplications in Ramadan is very important, as Allah says:
 
And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near.
 
I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me.
 
So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. (2:186)

Guarding the Tongue - In The Shade of Ramadan
 
Purmul reminds us that fasting is not only abstaining from food and drink. She discusses the sources of ill speech and how they can be countered.
 
 
It is very important to take care not to spoil one's fast with ill speech. As patience is one of the learning lessons in Ramadan, one should remember when/if provoked to say (I'm fasting - I'm fasting) and not say something to regret.
 
Remember that to increase in taqwa is the main objective of Ramadan and to remember that Allah sees each move we make and listens to each word we say

Self Accounting - In the Shade of Ramadan
 
Muslema Purmul sheds light on evaluating one own self for self improvement. She offers some practical steps of muhasaba (self evaluation).
 
 
Self-accounting is important for consistency, for checking one's intention and for self-improvement in Islam. It's important to make sure the curve of faith is rising day after day, week after week, and in case we go through a period when the faith curve goes the other way for any reason, to be able to recognize this drop, know the reasons and take remedial action to rectify the problem
