Currently Listening To..nothing actually i have my ear phones plugged in but i’m not Iistening to anything besides the ‘click’sound of my keyboard
Hi beauties, welcome to another blog post so today is going to be quite different..also I feel the need to do this, i’m sure no one can tell i’m Muslim..well I am, I try not to be controversial or all judge-y better yet i’ll just be quiet..but Ramadan is in a few days and i’m not readyyy *tears*..lol I don’t think anyone is but regardless i’ll like to remind everyone the do’s and don’ts of the holy month as I recently learnt too.
Rushing to breaking the fast as soon as one is certain that sunset has commenced is recommended.
Break time: When it’s time for Maghreb prayer, break your fast on water, a few dates, or fruit juice, before praying Maghreb. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “People will always be at ease, as long as they haste to do Iftar [breaking fast when it is time for Maghreb].
At the time when you break your fast on that first sweet date, remember to make a supplication, to ask Allah for what you desire: Paradise, forgiveness, pardon, health, and wealth.
Eat Sahoor: Muslims are usually advised to eat the Sahoor or pre-dawn meal. The later in the night the better. Sahoor can be a light snack, such as a glass of milk and a few dates, a banana, or a cheese sandwich. Do eat Sahoor every night because this small meal gives the body important nourishment which will help one endure the long fast without experiencing physical weakness. The Prophet (PBUH) did say, “Have Sahoor for verily there is blessing in it.”
Do Good: In Ramadan, choose the best deeds, the recommended acts that you may have neglected throughout the year, and spread goodness. You can gain rewards by spending more time with your parents, visiting relatives, helping anyone in need whether it is through charity or by helping take care of problems he/she may be facing. The fasting person is like a fragrant rose; his pleasantness is sensed by and extended to those around him.
Feed others: Feeding others when it is time to break the fast, as Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “He who gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, will receive the same reward for fasting, except that nothing will be reduced from the fasting person’s rewards
1. Avoid drinking, smoking, and having sexual relations.
2. Abstain from blood cupping, blood withdrawal, and using ear drops or inhalers while fasting.
3. Do not listen to music rather occupy your heart with supplication, remembrance of Allah, and the Holy Qur’an.
4. Avoid wasting your time.
5. Abstain from idle talk, gossip, lying, quarreling, cursing, and anything that can be hurtful to someone else. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, Allah has no need of him giving up his food and drink.” (Al-Bukhari)
6. Do not over eat while breaking your fast.
7. Do not keep malice or hold grudges
Until Next Time.
