Hey how are u guys?? i am good alhumdulillah i havent posted in a looong time so what are you guys up to??. I had a question "What stuff can't you do in Ramdaan? & "What stuff you can't do while you are fasting??" cuz i have had people tell me you cant watch TV or listen to music and the list goes on............

dont be so negative yo ;) focus on what you can do... you can purify your soul (and thats somethign we cant get enough), you can do good deeds and have them multiplied, you can do dhikr... and the list goes on an on... by changing your habits during this month and refraining from doing less bebeficial things, you make room to do more beneficial things. for example, things like watching tv, watching music, etc.. if you leave them during this month, you will focus on doing things that you will benefit from, and you can also help move towards leaving them altogether even after ramadan.
but to answer your question, i dont know if they are expressly forbidden, but i do know that leaving them is highly encouraged... maybe someone else can shed some light on this :)

|wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatAllah,|
Moe how you doin bro? Hope everything is cool inshaAllah, good to hear from you. :)
The only things that break your fast are eating, drinking, [having something ingested into your digestive system] or having sexual intercourse. Anything else you do, though it may not be good or right, does not break your fast.
but keep in mind though the hadeeth that says.. the person who does not fast from lying, Allah has no need for his fast from eating and drinking.
And also the hadeeth that says.. there are some people who fast and all they get from it is hunger and thirst. (meaning, they get no reward for it)
so do what you can inshaAllah :) It's a good time to work on purifying your nafs, as brother meraj said, but don't go overboard or you're going to burn out. Start on the most important things first.. salah, staying away from lying, gheebah, etc.. then work on tv/music..
ps - here's a good article on fasting: [url=http://jannah.org/ramadan/innerfasting.html]the Inner Dimensions of Fasting[/url]
