Default Ramadan 2019

Sorry for posting this late but Ramadan Kareem to all and may Allah bless you with the strength to keep going and accept your sacrifices.

Unfortunately as I was travelling outside the UK I wasnt able to keep a few. I am glad Ramadan fell mostly before the cricket World Cup in the UK.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Here are two of the best lectures on Ramadan.

Ramadan Khatirah - Preparing for the Blessed Month of Ramadan - Dr. Yasir Qadhi
The lecture is divided into two parts. In the first part, the Sheikh discusses the fiqh (jurisprudence/rulings) pertaining to Ramadan and fasting. In the second part, the Sheikh gives spiritual advice for motivation.



Let the hearts submit by Sheikh Omar Suleiman
Ramadan is all about making permanent personal change. In this lecture Sheikh Omar Suleiman talks about finding that moment in Ramadan when you truly transform and permanently change yourself for better.

In London, Fajr is like 3.25 am and we break our fast at 8.45 pm. Its been ok so far this year Allhamdullilah as the weather has been good.

I hope all of you are doing well so far too.

I break my fast with cold milk and dates. I dont buy dates made in Israel and avoid anything that says "packed in".

In the UK most of the major supermarkets have done their research and offer special offers during Ramadan, especially on dates, tinned tomatoes, flour and some juices. Dates in particular are sold in large units which are not seen at other times of the year. Some Kosher products also get the muslim discount offers like Falafels.

In high Muslim population areas like Birmingham there are dates and drinks at the entrance just before the Iftar time at some large stores like Asda.

Last year I did many trips to my local. A good range of people from different ethnicity. A local restaurant usually sponsors 4 iftars of which it consisted of spicy biryani.

I was encouraged to go as one Indian brother would vaccum the whole mosque after iftar every single day and I felt bad for him in the sense of the effort he would put everyday. No one would stay to help him apart from a few who would clean up utensils. All others would eat, pray, scramble for the left overs and leave.

Do you feel compassionate for those who don't pray, don't fast, don't give charity but calls them Muslims? How about kafir, sinners, idol worshipers, haters of Muslims and Muslim rules? If any of the answer is "No", then we need to go back to the Quran and Sunnah to see what Allah Subhana watala and His messenger (PBUH) feels about them.

Not fair

Our local community is very organized, actually the mosque of my town is one of the big centers of Massachusetts. We have dedicated team of volunteers to all necessary functions.

I know its not fair. But sadly many people are not as considerate especially when its in smaller mosques.

However I am extremely glad that Indian Brother took initiative.

This year Allhamdullilah waking up at Sehri isnt so bad. I like praying so early in the morning as it gives me extra time when getting up for work, which is when I normally do my Fajr prayers

15 years ago when I went to uni, a nearby restaurant would deliver some biriyani boxes and after Maghrib prayers, we would sit down and feast with two sharing a box. I quite liked the experience.

Generally what do you have for Sehri?

First couple of weeks I mostly had Parata - Meat curry (chicken or beef) - some milk and a cup of tea to finish it off. I also had Chitoi pitha with curry for couple of days.

Last few days I am having rice with fish curry. It seems having roti type things is more comfortable than rice.

Not much worried about Iftar/Dinner, can never have too much while I see a lot of brothers are able to consume lot more.

It's always some rice with milk and a ripe banana.

I have one large cold glass of milk and some dates. That keeps me going Allhamdullilah.

I normally have something after I pray Isha. Somedays I had cake or muri makha.

I dont like eating curry because my appetite doesnt kick in and cant be really bothered to heat the food.

Yesterday I missed Sehri by 15 minutes but managed to pray Fajr. So far going ok.
