A quick message to all those who don’t fast or don’t know a lot about it.

Standard

Muslim girl's life experiences

  • We fast for a period of 30 days. We do not starve for 30 days solid, as we only don’t eat from dusk to dawn.
  • It is not inhumane and we will not die and it’s not dangerous. Please don’t feel sorry for us, or feel like you have to hide your cup of tea and biscuits from us. We are adults and can fight the temptation of stealing your custard cream.
  • We know it’s roasting and can feel the heat and see the sun, and yes its not easy not being able to drink, but we are soldiers and will survive and again we will not die of thirst.
  • A happy faster, who wants to let people know that fasting won’t kill or break her…

Eat, Pray, Fast

Standard

 I yearn for the month of Ramadan,

 A month destined to bring spiritual fulfilment and make me closer to Allah,

Each year I pray that I become a better person and secure a place in heaven,

My journey to heaven and getting closer to Allah is not easy,

I find that each new day brings more distractions,

I daydream about what I will eat for iftar,

I rarely stop to think about those who face hunger each day,

Fasting for a month is nothing compared to starving for 365 days…

 

I plan iftars with friends and family,

I don’t spare a thought for the poor and needy,

I don’t plan what I will pray each night to make me closer to Allah,

I plan what I will eat at sehri and ifari time,

I don’t plan how I will secure my place in heaven….

 

I slowly realise that Ramadan is not just eat, pray, fast,

I miss the true meaning of Ramadan,

Making me closer to Allah,

Securing my place in heaven,

Helping the poor and needy,

Making me a better person,

Increasing my faith and imaan….
