Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim (In the name of Allah)
This Ramadan I made the intention that I would focus on reading Quran, memorizing surah/ chapter in the Quran, and spend time in prayer. Inshallah I try to strive to focus on Allah and becoming a better Muslim. There are times when I need to go cook in the kitchen or clean. This year and most recently in the last few days I want to gain as much knowledge and reminders in this most holy of months. While I clean, cook, etc… I have been listening to Islamic lectures.
The first my husband introduced me too is a series of lectures from scholar Tariq Ramadan, the Chronicles of Ramadan 1436-2005 Values. They are very short segments on the values that we should hold dear and practice.

Another is Ramadan 2015 Action Plan- Full Lecture- Nouman Ali Khan, this was given as a preparation as he focuses on the Ayat of the Quran that focuses on Ramadan and to strive to have a perfect month. This can also be listened to as a podcast via itunes if you prefer in the car or other activities on your digital device.
Right now we are in the last 10 nights and it is most important to focus on Allah with dua (prayer), Dhikr (remembrance). The following lecture: Last 10 nights of Ramadan and Laylatul Qadr – How to take advantage! – Yasir Qadhi, discusses the importance of attention to the last few days in Ramadan.
Sheikh Yusef Estes does a series of lectures called Ramadan Reminders
Last this sister made a cute video on the Two Best Times to make Duaa on Ramadan
Inshallah I hope you receive benefit from these lectures and if you have great programs you listen too please let me know in the comments.
