How not to Waste Ramadan

This is the second year that Ramadan has fallen during the summer holidays. As a result there are many that have no obligations such as school or work (for those lazy bums that couldn’t get a summer job). I envy those people. The list of things that I would do to make the most of this Ramadan if I had the amount of free time they have is endless. They on the other hand have been wasting it by staying awake all night browsing on the net and sleeping all day only to wake up around iftaar time. If thirst and hunger is all that they gain from this Ramadan, then they might as well not have fasted at all. I have made a list of things that they can do to make this a spiritually fulfilling Ramadan, apart from the two obvious ones: reciting the Quran and praying Taraweeh. Also want to mention that this is a reminder for me as well.

I had mentioned this video previously, but it is a good start.
