You can’t beat Tawareed. It’s like extra credit points for the Muslim. I love it cuz I get refresh my memory with some of the longer surahs. Alhamdulilah.

Ramadan Reflections 1

Ramdan makes us realize not only our blessings as the fact we’ve been given a month of Mercy is a blessing in itself but on the less serious side, it makes your realize how much food as both socially and physically consumes much of our lives. Like my brother said, it’s not just he abstaining from wordily pleasures and practicing sabr that makes Ramadan a difficult month but the will power to do so can be equally as challenging. Not eating is easy but knowing that you have food in your fridge and not being able to consume eat is also healthy reminder of Ramadan’s lessons.

Today, I was helping my mom with a project and I had to download food images. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t crave cassava leaf or akara but now I’m craving it like crazy lol. The life of fasting Muslim can be a  ”challenge” but alhamdulilah, for many of us, this is intentional fasting is not 365. While Ramadan allows us to empathize with our suffering brothers and sisters on minuscule level, it also strengthens our resolve to help relieve the suffering of human family beyond this blessed month.
