It is that time of year again when we are greeted with an old friend, Ramadan! A time where everyone is bound by a single motion. Around the globe Muslims are in unity from the moment the sun rises to the moment the sun sets. The rich and the poor, the good and the bad are all as equals.
The unity throughout this month gives us an insight into the struggles of those less fortunate than ourselves. Allowing us to experience the hunger of the homeless and the thirst for water of an orphan child. Teaching us to be grateful for what we have, and opening our minds to appreciate our blessings.
Ramadan gives us time to better ourselves as humans as well as, as Muslims. A time to reflect on oneself. I would say that this is the best time to go for anything you’ve always wanted to do. For example you want to stop swearing, then use this month to motivate yourself to stop. I also get a lot of girls that ask me questions about wearing the Hijab, and honestly Ramadan is the best time of the year to start because you can use this month to try it, and get comfortable with it. I do get a lot of girls saying they’re concerned about how others will comment on how they randomly put it on. Girl I feel you! That is the beauty of Ramadan because everyone is striving to be the best they can, so no one is focusing on what someone else is doing.
So set yourself a goal this Ramadan and try your hardest to follow it through! I would love to hear what goals you have set and how you are finding Ramadan so hit that comment button or drop me an email on my contact page!
