Have a blessed Ramadhan to all Moslems readers!
Talking about Ramadhan, I noticed a few bad habits during this month. I won’t say the name of the people to avoid ghibah, so I just write it generally taken from my old experiences (especially when I was child) and captured from others.
- Become shopaholic
Buying and collecting many foods for ifthar and suhoor. 🙂 People buy everything that they don’t really need.
Alhamdulillah, I can avoid it. The key is, I usually make shopping list and only buy what I really need.
- Become greedy when ifthar
When I was child, I was like that, 😀 One day, I collected many fruits those taken from garden. My parents asked me, “Are you sure you’ll eat all of these fruits?” I said, “Yes, I’ll! I ate everything till overly full. 😀
And now, I try to follow the rules of eating according our prophet. He explained, that 1/3 for eating, 1/3 for drinking and 1/3 for breathing. Don’t eat too much! 🙂
- Sleeping all the day.
We can understand we feel very sleepy when we woke up in early night. It’s okay if we take a nap for some minutes. But, I’ve seen the people slept too much, more than 5 hours in a day.
Ramadhan is time for charging ourselves become better Moslems. We should be more productive in this month, then we continue in next months.
- Playing fire cracker.
That’s something I don’t like to hear. I don’t understand why many men and children like to play fire cracker. What’s the benefits of it? What’s the interesting of it. It annoy us!
I’m so grateful that my son doesn’t like to play it. He said, if I bought it, so I have wasted my money.
The last, let’s try to avoid those bad habits, and pray to our Lord, may Allah guide us to His way and accept our fasting. Ameen.
*Ifthar (or Fatoor) is the evening meal.
Suhoor is pre-dawn meal.
