Getting Ready for Ramadan in the Summer

Take Full Advantage of the Long Day

Given that Ramadan will be in the summer (for the next...ten years or so), it is an opportune time to take advantage of the fact that you can't eat or drink until late. It is the perfect time to read the Qur'an during all those hours of waiting to eat. It should be quite easy, in fact, to finish recitation of the entire Qur'an during Ramadan. Read up on the life story of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), or that book by Dr. Tariq Ramadan that you have been meaning to read but had, heretofore, no time to finish. Spend more time with the children; figure out how to have a good time without eating and drinking. Yes, it may not be the greatest that you can't eat until 8 PM, but make some lemonade out of those lemons. (Just make sure you drink it after sunset!)
