In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
I keep hearing people moaning about how long fasting will be this year (re: UK timings)!
SubhanAllah. Yes, its going to be a bit tough, so it is important to eat foods that will give you the correct resistance throughout the working day. Further, you need to have iman and correct intentions to realise it is purely for the sake of Allah swt and you must understand, THERE WILL BE FOOD for you sitting on your table, unlike some people worldwide who are just having perhaps 1 meal (sometimes nothing at all) and are dying due to starvation. Prepare yourself mentally and realise, the month could be your chance for all your sins to be forgiven, who knows if you or I will make it till the next 15 days and who knows if this may be our last Ramadan!?
If you enter something with positivity, this will be the outcome. If you go into Ramadan with a negative attitude, then that is how you will feel.
Be grateful to Allah SWT, he only asks us to fast for 30 days out of 365! Audobillah.
There will be further blog posts to help prepare for Ramadan 1432 inshallah.
