HAPPY RAMADAN 2008!


Hello all, hope all is well with everyone.

As most of you know it's Ramadan time for the Muslim Community, so to those of you who are Muslim and stop by this site I just wanted to wish you all a blessed month.

Today I kinda wanted to reflect on the meaning of this month to me, it's not about putting a show and be proud to say to random people "oh I'm so hungry" or " yes i fasted" to me the Ramadan is just a special time in which you to take the time to reflect on your relationship with Allah...

I try to use this particular month to get quieter , to each day take one quality I would like to work on or reflect and get rid of a negative trait of my personality..

I asked around ,and my friend said for example that he wanted to work on "honesty" basically to me the act of not eating doesn't mean entirely that I'm having a great Ramadan....

My favorite Ramadan took place I want to say 4 or 5 years ago...why was it special ..simple, I devoted that month sincerly to listening to my heart, listen to my spirit, I tried to mainly listen to the Koran during that time to stay peaceful and mainly to be a good person towards others...You are human just as I am and you know that human relationships are not always easy...

If some of you want to share some of your goals this ramadan or had a beautiful testimony ou wanted to share feel free...

In the meantime have a Blessed Holly Month!
Eyeee Wayeee!

I came across a great Ramadan ecards site - www.101ramadan.com celebrating this special period of intense prayer and happy rejoicing. Set your mood for Ramadan and send ecards to all your near and dears :)
