Happy Ramadan 2016

Happy Ramadan 2016

By on June 6, 2016 in personal stories

Ramadan Kareem! May this blessed month provide you with spiritual revival and depth, success in your spiritual journey and the ability to receive Allah’s bountiful blessings.

I already messed up and woke up an hour earlier than I needed to. Eating must stop at the beginning of dawn – which is prior to fajr. Don’t confuse that with some websites that post astronomical dawn. Maybe that is dawn for Mars- I don’t know. But it’s a blessing as I had my suhoor early and I’m listening to Sheikh Omar Suleiman and Nouman Ali Khan speak inspiring words to start the month.

I plan – insha’Allah – to reduce social media this month except for spiritual reminders; to read Qur’an translation and my book about Aisha; to strive in fasting and prayer; to fight my nafs and be an example to my kids; to humble myself and improve my communication with people; to become more insular as a whole- and precise and selective in my messaging to the outside world.20160606_030135

My suhoor this morning is simple: oatmeal, half an apple and teaspoon of peanut butter.  Water and caffeine of course.

Invite a revert to iftar this Ramadan. Please! They need us. And we need them.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Love, Yasmina
