Welcoming Ramadan

Updated on May 6, 2019

First day of Ramadan


The month of mercy and bonding has begun.

Today I was so excited; I woke up and I was energized by the idea that I’m in Ramadan; the month of spirituality and good deeds. The first step that we welcome Ramadan in is by praying the Taraweeh on the night of the first day, and In Ramadan you learn about the beauty of caring for other people, cooking food for the people in need, ending your fights with the people you know and visiting each other over lovely Iftar and desserts. In Ramadan, you break your fast with dates which were the food of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Although people become tired at some point during their fasting, they remain content at the end, knowing that Allah is rewarding us.

Today I learned by hearing over the radio that in the Judgement day there will be a special gate in heaven only for people who fast, and that kept thinking constantly, and I thought that in this holy month, Allah will be there for everyone, he will be rewarding us and he will be making all of our wishes come true, because he is merciful and during Ramadan hopes are higher more than any other time of the year.

During the day I read the Quran, enhance the peaceful feeling of being a Muslim, and do more good deeds. Before the Call for Maghrib prayer; which is the time for Muslims to break their fast, we start preparing food altogether, and when the call is up, the Dua’a is being read, water is being drunk, and thanks for Allah are being given, we go for praying and then we come back for the delicious meal that we have prepared together.

In Ramadan, people take the great chance to start over and make good relations with their own selves, their families and friends and most importantly with Allah because the importance of this month is great, so I do my best each year to improve myself and my spirituality towards Allah and I try my best to become closer to him. And at the end of each day of Ramadan, we appreciate and thank Allah for being Muslims and for making it til Ramadan.
