Time really flies.Tomorrow we start the month of Ramadhan in the Hijrah year 1431. A whole month of fasting, goodwill and good thoughts.
So, yes. I barely fasted last year.
It was also a full month of firsts. I sahur-ed alone, and broke fast alone at the beginning of the month. I even fasted while on a work trip in Jakarta, where I experienced an earthquake and having my sahur in the wee hours of the morning at the hotel.
And not to mention, the terrible incident that happened towards the end of the fasting month which led to a serious domino effect – which I don’t want to get into right now.
My point is, I hope for a smoother Ramadhan this year – with not much obstacles and with a peace of mind. And that’s my wish for all my Muslim friends out there.
Happy fasting everyone!
