    It seems mentally preparing for Ramadan is more important , than the shopping aspect, not that the latter is irrelevant. I am more regular and focused at prayer, mostly because Ramadan is coming. I have cut down on my frequent teas,for that is the most difficult thing during Ramadan. I am up more early, as early morning prayer is more significant than ever.

    Ramazan is a month of Ibadah(Prayer) and not for more eating.
