Ramadan…from Tomorrow

DSC_0927

Starting from tomorrow, we are going to observe fasting for one month. This year fasting will start from 03:24 hr till 19:21 hrs daily. During these hours, no eating, drinking or smoking is allowed. Just breathing. Typically lady of the house will get up at 2 am or 2:30 am and prepare food. I will get up a bit late, stuff myself, take tea and smoke two cigarettes. The days become very slow. Breaking the daily fast is at sun set.

Hope to enjoy this tough type of worship.

    Don’t like the sound of that early start – think I’d leave breaking my fast until evening!

      Those who live alone will usually take a late dinner and skip getting up early. But getting up early is part of the fun. During this month our life style changes significantly.

    Sounds like a difficult religious practice. Not sure I could go without food for that length of daytime, but I respect & admire your adherence to your religious beliefs.

    Is the golden dome from your local mosque?

    • Dr_IQ says:

      Yes, it is difficult and challenging. Feeling hungry is not a big problem but getting thirsty is.
      The golden dome is of a beautiful mosques on a hill top in Malaysia.
