Bismillah Hir Rahman Ir Raheem
I’m back again, signing up after a long delay of visiting WordPress which I am deeply sad about but then CIEs won’t give my exams themselves 😏
Here’s to wishing all the Muslims out there a very happy, joyful, blessed, content, awesome, exciting Eid Mubarak! After a long month of keeping control of our hunger, desires, anger, and bad deeds, we finally reap the rewards of our efforts. Thus, this is a wonderful day for all Muslims out there.
However, i feel like I have not done enough to better myself in this month as I was unable to focus on my spiritual self and to improve my Iman (faith) in Allah because the entire Ramadan was spent in my exams so I kinda feel leftout, missing something warm and comforting inside my heart 😥
Because Ramadan is a wonderful experience where it is a special ‘me with Allah’ time and I feel like I’m not alone in this world. Although Muslims in all may not perform same acts of worship, for e.g not alot of them pray 5 times a day, even in my family. But in Ramadan, they pray 5 times a day and even go to the Masjid for Taraweeh prayers. Like I mentioned in one of my very first blogs, it was a wonderful experience where I was able to worship Allah in a calm, peaceful and welcoming environment far from the distractions of the world. And I’d pray with my fellow Muslims. That’s the month I yearn for as I feel like I’m part of something that is bigger than myself.
Although that may seem hypocritical that some people become completely engrossed in worship and seem to neglect their promises when the blessed month ends, it is important to know that we don’t know everything that a person does so we cannot judge them, only Allah knows how devout a person is, of whatever faith they are a part of. In addition, their acts of worship in Ramadan could be the starting point from which they can achieve much more that we do not know about. So for some people, this blessed month can be very life-changing. Pakistan has broken the record in the amount of Zakat giving in this month so that is really something to be tremendously proud of as everyone from every class and socio-economic status ajd benefit in this month and in Eid. It is a good time to enlighten our minds and remind us of our position and our purpose on this God-made earth.
So may all Muslims have a wonderful Eid and may everyone have blessed, awesome, content and happy days for years to come.
I’ll end this blog with a cute video that I found on Facebook.
