Wishing you a very happy Ramadhan
May Allah always be blessed us
Alhamdulillah, thanks to Allah... Ramadhan, the holy loved month of all muslim around the globe will be coming soon.. Here in Indonesia Ramadhan will begin at 11th August 2010.
Ramadhan was the month when every muslim do fasting from dawn to dusk (sunset). Fasting is not only about refrain of drink, eating or sex activities... but more for improve our faith and piety towards Allah The Almighty.
Actually the essence of fasting is more to redirect our heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm. It also allows Muslims to practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate; thus encouraging actions of generosity and charity.
Every ramadhan night muslim will perform the special pray called 'Taraweh" which held in the mosque...Me and my family were also doing so... but sometimes I usually Taraweh at home, and my hubby with our children go to the mosque...Actually Taraweh is the great moment for the kids.
especially for my little son Baim... He's so excited when time for Taraweh coming... because after taraweh he can play fireworks or even firecrackers with his friends...
which I always forbid, but he still keep playing happily...
My son Baim
This little man is the one who very excited when ramadhan or esp 'taraweh' coming
However Ramadhan is really a great time for me to teach our kids for being a good muslim, learning how to purify our soul, how to spread out the kindness, offer more prayers, give charity, more to read Al Quran, and make more Dhikr...
I really feel grateful for the presence of Allah The Almighty, for His grace me and my family here are still able to meet The holy month of ramadhan this year... Hopefully we can be reunited again with the ramadhan in subsequent years.
