Ramadhan Kareem

Hey everyone!

How's your puasa so far? Had a good buka puasa meals? Mine? Oh sad that I am not able to fast on the first day of Ramadhan. tskk. I hope I will be able to start fasting soon... I wouldn't want to miss any of the pahala-pahala besar in this holy month ='(

picture googled

But anyway, my mom cooked some very very nice meals today. We had some lauk-lauk kampung and her yummy traditional Malay delicacies as our desserts. I didn't snapped any of the food photo as I arrived home a bit late today. Jammed everywhere. At that hours, biasalah, kan. hehe. So, they had eaten almost half of the food when I arrived...

Nevertheless, I did have a good time today, after arriving home from work, seeing both my sisters and their family came to our house to break fast together. Our place was full of cheerfulness with the kids running around the house, and the parents and everyone else talking and eating, and the bibiks laughing and whatnot..hehe. This is one of the things that I love about this holy month. The Ramadhan spirit! First, is the spirit of sharing and gathering. Whether at my house, or my kampung, or your house or the mosques and even at the restaurants. The spirit is shared whether in big or even smaller communities! Everyone gathered to break fast and share the food with one another.. You can feel the excitement in the air everywhere around you! This month also encourages people to be more generous and kind to each other.. That's why I love Ramadhan so much.. There's just something wonderful and happy about it! For me, this is the month that has a very powerful way of connecting in with the spirit of charity, sharing, doing good deeds and remembrance of God.  =)
“The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.”

Another thing that I like about Ramadhan is, the spirit of performing the Taraweeh. For non-Muslim, these are the special prayers featuring recitations of the Qur'an after our 'Isha prayer (the last evening prayer). This is not compulsory like fasting. It is optional but recommended. Because the rewards are HUGE. So many muslims pray these prayers in the night during Ramadhan..whether at home or at mosques..

These were the two little happy kids running around the house, and kacau everyone..hehe

Oh, I hope I will be able to fast soon! Happy fasting everyone! Have a blessed Ramadhan! =)

  5. ‎"This phrase 'Ramadan Kareem' is not correct, and the only phrase that should be said is 'Ramadan Mubarak' or what resembles that. Because Ramadan is not the one that gives such that it can be called generous (Kareem), rather it is only Allaah the Exalted that put virtue in it and made it virtuous month a nd made the time period for performing a pillar from Islam" - Shaykh Uthaymeen rahimullah
