Ramadan Journal 2015: Day 3 – Love

What I love about Ramadan this year is:

My husband doing dawah work, something he is passionate about and something I hope we will get equal reward for supporting him in.

The long days without eating that free up time to do other things

That quiet time in the morning after suhoor when you can pray and read Quran in complete peace, rare in this house.

Napping in the afternoon on weekends

Sharing food with the neighbours and being sent iftar.

Ramadan crafts – I love green and blue and the quatrefoil pattern often used in Islamic art so have used it for my theme this year.

The thought of all of our dua's being accepted and Allah (SWT) taking care of our problems.





What I don’t love so much is:

Missing my husband

Feeling a little disconnected from the life of the masjid because he is not here

Feeling crazy sleepy a lot of the time.

Struggling to concentrate at work

Worrying about my mum, mother-in-law and dad-in-law who are not always well and find it harder to fast as the years go by.
