Ramadhan Mubarak Everybody! We all have been blessed by a year since the last time I remember waking up to have Suhr, pray Fajr and have a whole exhausting day whilst fasting. Then greeted by Iftar as I munch on the most delicious food.
Sometimes, it feels great to fast all day rather than exhausting, because at the end of the day we’re going to be very thankful for the food that we normally take for granted. It also helps you connect to God more as you attempt to push away all the waste of time that we do. Also, it makes you know how good it feels like to be surrounded by family.
Well as for me, my family is halfway around the world and I know that… unfortunately. But I will look forward to seeing my family when I go back to the place where I can proudly say home.
Ramadhan also lets you reflect to the past year and try to be a better person. Try to have a better year. As I’ve heard, ‘after hardship comes ease’ and ‘it’s how you rise from a fall that truly defines you as a person’, I think it is true. You take those bad things that you’ve done and make sure you don’t do them again.
There’s also the Terawih prayers that we pray after Isha. I know I may fall asleep… sometimes… okay, most of the times but it’s nice to just know that I fell asleep after I did something good.
All I wanted to say is that I wish you all the best for the rest of the Ramadhan and the next year. Do as much Ibadah as you can in the next month and push away all the bad thing. God bless all of you.
