Ramadan, the fasting month for Muslims worldwide. A time where individuals reflect on reading Quran, internalize its meanings and try our best to implement its teachings into belief, purpose and a just social cause. Holding the rope of faith that is given to each individual, then at sunset breaking of the fast; to experience a feeling of appreciation. After 12 or 14 hours of fasting; a reality sets in and it tells you something like, “life is more precious than before…be thankful”
What does it all Mean?
Each day, the fast initiates a hunger seeking comfort, upon breaking we find that comfort and it’s associated with a fresh awareness. For some there is no time for idle talk, but reflections are pondered during every bite and drink. Thoughtful ponders come to mind such as… How can I revive my faith, why have I wasted time both social and professionally, everyone is married but me… duh
Some serious and simple thoughts all occur. Then after completing the Sunset Prayer (Mahgrib Salat), a sense for reviving life occupies the mind and body. We have a revival of courage, a feeling to try harder for what absolutely matters. Begin applying the faith (Iman) we have read into our life. Feeling like a wonder twin, activating our super powers! The fast can have an extraordinary effect, a feeling we attempt to stretch out until the sighting of the next Ramadan. It is a constant stage of redevelopment.
Report to our Destiny!
Chapter 3 Verse 103 “…hold fast all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided Among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s Favor on you…” (reading the entire verse, really stimulates a truth within)
“I pray … your fast is easy, we revive and redevelop our Ansaari nature for community and bond.”
Today (Tuesday) I broke fast with a big cup of ice water, turkey roll-ups and cantaloupe with a bowl of noodles, it was good and I’m thankful for the meal….
