Shaping Your Story
Ramadan is a fasting month that comes once a year. This year we started it on May 16th. Not all Muslims around the world started it on the same day. We were given a calendar from the local mosque, according to them, we were to start on the date I mentioned, regardless of the fact that others started a day later.
A month before fasting, I got an eerie feeling will I successfully begin and end the month?
June is a long month for fasting in our city, we finish eating by 3 AM and continue until sunset, at this time, food or drink is not allowed.
So far I managed to fast nineteen days and I hope I’ll continue until it’s over.
Each morning I read the Quran after I finish eating. It reminds me I’m only here for a short while, the real place is hereafter. I try to think back if I have accumulated enough good deeds to get a place where I will not face any hardship.
It doesn’t matter what I think, it’s up to God who decides our fate.
Fasting is one of the good deeds, I hope I can complete it successfully this month without problems!
