Ramadan is around the corner. You say it every year but in this pandemic, it really feels like it came around quick! In less than a month our day-to-day routines and priorities will take a major shift. There will be a different feeling in the air, a kind of slowness, a calm, a spiritually charged sort of feeling. Ramadan puts the entire household into sync, all following the same times of waking up and dining together and doing the same when breaking your fast at Iftaar.
This syncing together comes from the timetable – you know the one. The one that your dad or brother brings home from the masjid. The one that gets stuck onto the fridge or the inside of the cabinets. You refer to it throughout the day, checking what time to pray and counting down to when you can open your fast. The one thing I loved doing as a kid was crossing every day at the end of the night. And yes, I still do that!
The only thing about these calendars is that are purpose-based. They fulfil this purpose but they aren’t always the most aesthetically pleasing. That’s where this comes in!
In the past, I would design a downloadable/printable Ramadan Timetable that could to be displayed proudly. As I started blogging again, I was really looking forward to making one this year.
One thing I did this time around is create a few versions. You can download it in two sizes (letter/8.5 x 11 and 8 x 10) and two types. The first is for a Toronto Ramadan Schedule and the other one is a blank version that can also be uploaded to Canva or any other design program so you can input your own times since they vary from city-to-city.
If you are using the blank one, keep reading to get all font details. If not, skip below and get to downloading!
The font I used was Alta Light (here are some alternatives that are similar).
8 x 10 – font size: 11.5. Line spacing: 1.17. Download the City of Toronto Ramadan Timetable here and the blank one here.
8.5 x 11 (letter) – font size: 12.6. Line spacing: 1.17. Download the City of Toronto Ramadan timetable here and the blank one here.
