Trapped in to-dos and endless appointments, everything we do becomes a task to be checked off quickly, even our worship. So how can we be spiritual if we’re so busy? Prepare for the sacred month with our two dear community teachers as they present practical tips to connect with Allah and rise above the grind this Ramadan.
