How to manage Ramadan with WhatsApp
The holy month of Ramadan is a time for reflection and togetherness. It is also a month where you spend more time with family and friends, plan community meets, and organise charity events. And a lot of that planning and organising takes place within the privacy of WhatsApp chats. Here are some tips and ideas on how to use WhatsApp effectively as you create new memories with loved ones this Ramadan.
Plan your virtual iftar
Iftar or the act of breaking a fast during Ramadan is often undertaken with family and friends. But what if you have family members who live overseas or elderly grandparents who are not able to join in person? You can still stay connected by organising a virtual iftar evening on WhatsApp with video calls for up to 32 people. You can also use call links to plan ahead, so everyone knows when to join in and you aren’t adding people in one by one.
Share inspiring meal ideas with family and friends
Sahur and iftar are the two most important meals during Ramadan, but sometimes, planning meals for a month can become a chore. Why not inspire others and get inspired by creating a WhatsApp Group of home cooks and foodies where you can share meal ideas? You can also upload photos of your meals to Status and let your connections know how you are channelling your inner chef this Ramadan.
