Tips & Advice

Working From Home during Ramadhan

Ibrahim Patel, Trainee Solicitor at JMW Solicitors LLP, shares with us his top tips for our Muslim members to thrive whilst working from home during this holy month.

As we have all experienced during the last couple of months, Working From Home brings about a set of challenges which we have all been trying to overcome. However, I am sure many would agree that WFH during the fasting month of Ramadhan will be very well welcomed by those observing this holy month. Although this is not to say that doing so is free from any of its own challenges.


During the month of Ramadhan, life still goes on and Muslims continue to work and live their lives as they would normally on a daily basis. This alone is a challenge when you cannot consume any food or drink during sunlight hours. These unprecedented times have meant that so far we have been able to work from the comfort of our own homes and has been a blessing in disguise for many. The PM’s latest message also means it is unlikely we will be returning to offices until after Eid (I think!).
