We all must fast in Ramadan,
Which is one of the five pillars.
It is a blessed month you know,
We fast for allah, not for show.
It’s designed to make us think,
As we refrain from food and drink.
We feel the hunger and pain,
As much there is for us to gain.
From dawn till dusk we fast,
Hoping that our sawm we fast.
While, try to do much good,
Building taqwa like we should.
Special prayers we say at night
To forgive and guide us as we try.
While ourselves it was in ramadan
When allah revealed the holy quran
And so began the prophet’s call
A guide and mercy to us all
And the night of qadr is unique
It’s blessings all believers seek
Then we follow the day of ‘Eid’ a truly festive day indeed.
Fasting teaches discipline too.
And self-control for me and you.
As year by year we train to be
Better Muslims, by Allah’s decree
Everyone is revving their engines for Ramadan, but most nursing mothers are wondering if they will fast at all. Will I make enough milk? Will it be too hard? How can I prevent myself from getting horrible headaches? Some feel pressure from their families (which is concerning) and others just need that spiritual boost no…

Well ramadan has started and its going good I guess this is my second time fasting during ramadan ,
To be honest it has been hard on me let me explain it, matters not that I go without food it is the no drinking from farj prayer till marbib prayer that I have the most trouble with.
Normally when not fasting I chug water all day long , once I kept track of just how much water I drank during a 24 hour period and it was over 2.5 gallons this is not factoring in tea, coffee or any other type of liqiuds .
Ramadan started off with a series of bangs thats how they let everyone know here in morocco, I fasted the first two days then aunt flo arrived after iftar of the second day of fasting.
For the next 7 days I didn’t fast but I helped out in other ways I helped cook foods chased children and washed clothes as well as tons of dishes .
I still wash the dishes whenever I find them you would believe how fast the dishes pile up.
I have been trying to read the Qur’an now that I am ovear aunt flo. It is slow going but in sha Allah I will finish it .
Today we made zemata a type of moroccan dessert it is yummy but very tiring to make .
The first 14 days of Ramadan have already passed and so far what I have learned is when its the hottest part oF the day try to nap or at least lay still under a fan .
