Ramadan Journal 2016: Day 18 – Iftar

One thing I used to do every day at iftar last year was share pictures of our meals with my sisters and sister-in-law on Whatsapp. It was nice to share what you had made and see what people were having and also a way to get ideas for subsequent meals. Every day before we ate, my mum-in-law would whip the covers off all of the food and say “go on then, take a picture”. This year she is not spending Ramadan with us and we have all been exhausted the first few days.

Now we are in the Ramadan routine, we have been sharing pics again:

Alhamdulillah for the blessings of good food shared with family.

Abu Hurairah relates that the Prophet (saw) said: “Allah says: ‘The fasting person has two occasions for joy, one when he breaks his fast because of his breaking it and the other when he meets his Lord because of the reward for his fast.” (Bukhari, 7492 and Muslim, 1151)
