Blessed.. Indeed

21 Jul


Ramadhan is finally here. Alhamdulillah, all praises to Allah, for allowing us to meet with this blessed month again. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my Muslim friends and followers (all 2 billion of you, LOL!) all over my social networks Salam Ramadhan. May this month be full of blessings, warmth and guidance for you and your families.

O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint. [Surah Al-Bakarah – 2:183]

Muslims fast during the month of Ramadhan, abstinence from food and drink. It is indeed a time for self-restraint and self-reflection.

And probably the biggest misconception that non-Muslims had about fasting is that we EAT like there’s no tomorrow at dusk when it is time for Iftar (break fast). Hehe, no. Self-restraint, remember? But yes, sometimes we tend to get overboard when preparing food for Iftar. That’s why we have to keep in mind, prepare moderately to avoid wastage.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) got by with just a glass of milk and a few dates.
