Ramadan is a holy month in Islam. Muslims abstain from eating and drinking from dawn until sunset. During this month, friends and families will gather for a large meal called Iftar, which consists of traditional foods. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam.
Ramadan is an exciting time for me. I became a practising Muslim some years ago. I was pleased to embrace Islam and wear my hijab. There have been many changes since I became practising good changes, Alhamdulilah.
One of the changes I was not prepared for was the loneliness—every Ramadan and eid, I spent on my own. It does not become any easier, that’s for sure. The loneliness is difficult, but I did not let it stop me from fasting and practising my deen.
This Ramadan was difficult because I had no hot water or heating. I boiled a kettle for hot water and filled up a pan of water to wash. Doing wudu was challenging, especially on the colder days.
Here are my thirty days of Ramadan 2022
On the first day of Ramadan, I felt energised and did an aerobics workout at home.
Praying Dhuhr صَلَاة ٱلظُّهْر – the second prayer of the day out of the five daily prayers.
Omg what a wonderful emotional journey filled with strength, emotions, presistance, kindness and godly light in the heart.
I felt so small and humble in front of your passion and faith.
May Allah bless, ease and enlight your path always.
