and of course, plenty and I mean plenty of picnics with friends in local parks….
And the Summer’s rhythm is about to change…Ramadan begins on Wednesday and the eating and drinking is going to be limited…time is going to be spent differently… I have a wish, a simple wish…that I am blessed with a simple Ramadan….simplicity is what I simply want…keep it simple without complications… simple so I can focus in what is real….
I wish you and all your dear ones a happy simple peaceful Ramadan,
‘Â’ishah (may Allâh be pleased with her) said:
“The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allâh be upon him) used to fast until we thought he would never break his fast, and not fast until we thought he would never fast. I never saw the Messenger of Allâh fasting for an entire month except in Ramadân, and I never saw him fast more than he did in Sha’bân.”
[Narrated by al-Bukhârî, Muslim]
Salaams and Hasta pronto,
to fast outside of Ramadan? I need to make up nine days in total and it is sooooo hard. I’ve attempted a couple of times but had to give up because of splitting headaches. Alhamdulilah I managed the first day today and I intend to fast again tomorrow inshallah.
Well I guess it’s all to do with the shaytans not been locked up any longer plus my nafs being harder to control. May Allah make it easy for me and you.
I leave you with some pics of my dd12’s (teenage wannabe) R.S project. She’s begged me to put it in my blog and because it fits in well with the subjet matter…voila
The month after Ramadan ,Shawal, is on.
Aboo Ayyoob al-Ansaaree narrated: Allaah’s Messenger, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, said: “He who fasts Ramadhaan, and six of Shawwaal, it will be (in terms of rewards) as if the fasted a whole year.” [Reported by Muslim, at-Tirmidhee, Aboo Daawood, Ahmad, Ibn Maajah]
May Allah make it easy for everyone to fulfill this ameen
