Welcome the holy month of Ramadan, the month where all Muslim around the world have to do fasting before the sun rises till the time the sun sets for a whole month.
This song by Native Deen can give you insight on Ramadan
I heard in some countries, they put their school on holidays for the whole month so that the children can do fasting without having to put their brain busy with school work. Here in Indonesia, everything runs normally. School has a three days holiday in the beginning of Ramadan but then they have to go to school again…they will have another holiday a week before and after EĪd ul-Fitr (Idhul Fitri in Indonesia). But school hours become shorter than usual.
As for us, working people, we work as normal as always. Fasting or not, it doesn’t matter
Maybe you have never heard about this month before, so…I will give a brief explanation of this fasting month. For a whole month, we have to wake up around 3-4 am and do Sahur, eating as if we are having a lunch in the early morning…at Subuh time (a moment before the sun rises) we have to stop all eating and drinking activities (also smoking for smokers). We are not allowed to eat and drink till Magrib (sun sets). Lucky I live in Indonesia where Subuh usually starts around 4.30 am and Magrib is around 6.00 pm which means I have about 13 hour fasting. But other part of the world can have over 15 hour fasting time.
As we have to start this month with a pure heart, to all my blogger friends:
Please forgive all the wrong words I have written to you that might have hurt your feeling.
