Ramadan is a special time. Muslims around the world fast from when the sun rises and ends for 30 days. It’s a time to do good as much as you can by praying, being kind and giving charity. It is a wonderful month to appreciate the blessings that you have in your life.
For more about Ramadan, I wrote a more detailed blog post last year here.
It’s a time when you contemplate on what you have and reflect on the blessings that we take for granted. The best thing about it is that you have an inner peace and strength that is sometimes hidden. It is also a time of empathy where it allows you to appreciate that you will get food after dusk but there are people out there who still may not have anything to eat even after dusk. And this is the sad fact and this is why it is also vital to give charity, always and especially in this month, so that we can help others who are under privileged.
I have a lot to be thankful for and I thank Allah (God) for the food and other blessings that I have. It’s also a great time to get together and open your fasts with everyone, as this also counts as a blessing.
After the fasts are over we can look forward to having a nice time with the family and dress up and appreciate what we have in life. We should not however, forget at Eid or after Eid the underprivileged, so it is important to be continually kind and give charity whenever we possible! InshAllah.
I hope you all liked this blog about Ramadan and it’s importance for me. How do you spend it and what are you looking forward to this Ramadan and Eid?
