Ramadan Slump? There's a Round Up for that too!

Ma sha Allah, can you believe that 1/3 of Ramadan has already passed us? We've now reached the middle 10 days which for some folks means a Ramadan Slump. What is a Ramadan Slump you ask?
Well many of us are revved up at the beginning of the month visiting the masjid often, reading a juz or more of Quran daily, and doing extra ibaadat, but as is human some of us experience a dip and find that we aren't as diligent as we were in the beginning. If that's the case w. you don't beat yourself up.

I've compiled this short round up of resources that address the Ramadan Slump and provide some tips  on what you can do about it!

1. To start off the roundup, Productive Muslim has two articles that address dealing with the Mid-Ramadan slump and earing up for the Home Stretch (when a lot of folks get their 2nd wind and finish up strong.)
