Islam observes Ramadan as one of its holy months. From dawn to sunset, Muslims abstain from eating and drinking. Friends and family gather for a large meal called Iftar, which includes traditional foods. As one of Islam’s five pillars, fasting is one of the most important.
During Ramadan, I am filled with excitement. Several years ago, I started practicing Islam. Embracing Islam and wearing my hijab was an exciting experience for me. Alhamdulilah, I have noticed many changes since I started practicing good changes.
My first surprise was the loneliness – I spent every Ramadan and Eid alone. It doesn’t seem to get easier over time, that’s for sure. In spite of the loneliness, I fasted and practiced my deen regardless.
The Ramadan for this year was difficult due to the lack of hot water and heating. In order to wash, I boiled a kettle for hot water and filled up a pan with water. It was challenging to do wudu in the colder weather conditions.
This is my 30-day 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.
