We started Ramadan, the Holy Month for Muslims~!!
Ramadan Mubarak, minna sa~
So this is the month we fast in, starting sunrise to sunset.
duration is different from country to country.. for my in UAE, it’s from around 4AM to 19:05PM.
Till now i’m ok, only felt a sting of hunger once and then it’s gone, by sunset (Futoor Time) a glass of water is enough for me, but i eat anyways, though i only eat one type of food. others, i would just take a try-bite.
The reason we fast is, in Islam, Allah wants to remind us of the Poor and how they don’t have food for days and they even starve to death.
Also, it’s not just stopping food and drinks, it’s also to keep ourselves from any immoral things; gossips, bad mouthing and cussing.. Looking at bad things, and anything that is immoral, on the other hand they do more good things, help anyone in need more than any normal day, among other things.
Another thing is, strengthen relationships, we visit families and friends, and before sunset we exchange what we cooked of food.
Ramadan truly is a special month.
