Ramadan Study Plan: 7 Tips for Students

how to keep up with studies during ramadan? 7 tips for students!

Ramadan is just around the corner, in shaa Allah, and we are so excited! To prepare for the blessed month and to make the most out of it, it is important to strategize and plan certain aspects of our life to make the best out of the holy month. For students, it is easy to lose focus and get tired during the day while we are fasting which makes it more difficult to comprehend information we are learning. To make this Ramadan the best that we can, we have seven tips and tricks for students to help assist them in making studies during Ramadan effective and efficient.

1. Sleep

Going to sleep early and being cautious not to stay up late on Ramadan nights, is important to get up early. Sleep will help keep you stabilized during the days of fasting.

2. Eat Healthy

Choosing healthier options to eat rather than foods that are high in preservatives, fried, or sugary will make or break your day. Picking those foods that are high in nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber will keep up your energy levels and lower your fatigue throughout the day.

3. Stay Hydrated

Water, water, water! Water is crucial in any type of day whether fasting or not. Drinking enough water before you start your day fasting will regulate your body and provide the right amount of H2O to all your organs such as your brain to keep you focused and your heart to keep your body running efficiently.

4. Organize Your Time

Planning out your day will keep you on track and allow you to make the most of certain times in the day when you are more energetic from suhoor. For example, studying from Fajr until midday would be the best organization of your time since you will have loads of energy from your breakfast! Saving your work for around iftar time is not the best idea since you will be depleted of energy from activities throughout the day.

5. Take Breaks

Take breaks throughout your study sessions to recharge. Taking twenty-minute breaks for every two hours of studying will help the blood flow in your body and your brain to get that mental rest to come back refocused. Including some hand to toe stretches is also a great idea you can incorporate to get blood flowing to the brain and give you a little boost!

6. Limit physical activity

Physical activity is something that we do not want to skip throughout our days because it helps our body be healthy and our heart to pump efficiently. However, during days that we are fasting, it is good to postpone anything that is not light physical activity for later in the day when you have already had your iftar. In doing so, the food you had for suhoor will remain in your body to help you function and focus on your studies rather than using all that energy for sustaining the exercise.

7. Form a Study Group

Lastly, forming a study group is always a go-to method of increasing attention span while also keeping us excited to learn. When you have a good study group, they can provide different methods of comprehension on a subject, such as through talking, presentations, ideas, and discussions in which these methods can help us to retain information better especially when our minds are tired and foggy.


Try these tips and tricks when you are studying during Ramadan and watch your fasting become easier to manage. You can even start practicing for voluntary fasts or make-up fasts you will be doing leading up to Ramadan insha’Allah.

May Allah allow us to see another Ramadan and earn the most from this blessed month. Ameen!
