She’s so nice, she’s the only one that even bothered to agree to this tag so thanks babygirl. You guys should please check her blog.

1. When do you start getting excited about Ramadan.

Immediately after the last one, I get excited for the next one, wish we could have two Ramadan in a year because of the blessing that comes with the glorious month. But the excitement get higher a month before the Ramadan, you can literally feel the excitement in the air. The preparation and anticipation is always exciting.
  2. What is your fave Ramadan memory

My favorite memory of Ramadan would definitely be one of the last ten 10 days of my last Ramadan in school. During one of the night prayers, we were on the last chapter of the Quran,and this heavy rain started and immediately the last verses was recited it stopped. Just had this magical feeling like God was with us and all our prayers were answered. It might just be a normal coincident but I felt it was something really spiritual. Can never forget that day.
  3. Do you have any Ramadan tradition.
Ramadan tradition? Well I like to always spend the last 10 days of Ramadan in mosque to increase my act of worship and devotion to complete reading the glorious Qur’an.


  4. Do you have a fave Ramadan food
No, anything goes but date is a must have for me everyday
5. When you fast, do you think about food

No. I don’t think anyone fasting during this month would think of food except thinking of what to eat during iftar (Breaking of the fast).


6. What makes you happy about Ramadan  

The fact that i will have full dedication to worship my lord. There is always this energy to do more act of worship during Ramadan.
7. Which is your favourite day of Ramadan ‎.
One of the last 10 days of Ramadan. “The night of majesty ” where all request/prayers are answered.
8. Any tips for people fasting?
Eat less, pray more.


  9. Do you ever miss sahoor.
Yes. Sometimes
10.  Have you ever forgotten you were fasting and ate. 

Yes. Well luckily for us Islam permit us to continue the fast since the eating wasn’t intentional.
 Well there it is guys.

If you’re fasting, how is it going? And up you’re Christian, how are your Muslim friends holding up??

Until Next Time, My Loves

Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan 101 || Do’s and Don’ts of the Holy Month

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. 

​​

Do

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

Dont

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.
