Today, I came home early at 5pm after various failed attempts to stay awake at work... and.... 'pucuk dicipta, ulam mendatang' (right phrase?), Nasi Kerabu was the main dish for breaking fast... !! Mum's home cook Nasi Kerabu.... and the last 2 hours before breaking fast was dreadful and longest.
Ramadhan is so magical... There was no urge for cigarette, food or no thirst for water or sex... But a major problem with staying awake... and a moody temperament.
It was a hard struggle from the regular daily few pack of 'ciggie' & jugs of daily coffee withdrawal syndrome and after days and nights of pure patients... I woke up to realise it is only a week of fasting with another 3 weeks to go......
Alhamdulillah, the one week only fasting thusfar went well although I appeared like a walking zombie with dark black ring around the eye.
It is customary every year during Ramadhan that we engaged Ustaz Khairullah everyday for isya' and terawih prayer at the house. The jemaah comprised of the siblings, nieces and nephews as well as all the off-duty security guards and maids as well as friends.
Ramadhan is also a month that foster closest of relationships between siblings, family and friends that get together everyday for breaking fast and prayer.
All the best and enjoy the beauty of Ramadhan.
