Today is the third day of Ramadan…the month of fasting for moslems all over the world…
I asked myself several times…why?why?and why?
I will tell you the answer …but first we should know what is fasting?
It is simply the abstention from eating and drinking from dawn to sunset.Not only drinking and eating but also the abstention from doing all that displeases Allah.
Simply to break(I can not) and delete it completely from your life and replace it with (I can).
For a whole month you find your self doing things you thought that they are difficult and impossible to do.
You wake up late an hour before dawn to have Sohoor meal and then you pray dawn prayer which was difficult for you to perform before Ramadan and now you perform dawn prayer daily and easily.
You find yourself in Ramadan spending money generously on poor people and that you have got enough money although you spent a lot to help others.
In Ramadan and after two days of fasting you discovered that fasting is so easy …so you can fast on Monday and Thursday after Ramadan ends…..(prophet Mohammad was doing that)…
You were smoking cigarretes during the day but now you can stop smoking easily .
In breif …after Ramadan you can and you can and you can….
Break (I can’t) and replace it with (I can)…
This is the essence of Ramadan…
