Is Anyone Fasting For Ramadan?
Posted 02 August 2012 - 02:42 AM
I was just wondering if anyone is fasting for Ramadan. This is the first time I'm trying to do the whole month. I'm sort of cranky but otherwise doing okay. Would love to hear about anyone else's experiences.

The following a'yat (verses) support this point: " and do not kill yourselves, Allah is ever merciful to you" and "he has not laid upon you in your religion any hardship ".

What is hardest for me, believe it or not, isn't the eating or the drinking but praying 5 times a day--usually I only do night prayer. And the whole schedule. I don't like eating heavy at night, and then to get up and eat in the morning is just sort of vomitous. Not that that is a word, but you know what I mean. But I feel good about doing it. Sometimes I can be a bit of a "quitter." It feels good this time not to quit.

You will get there with the praying it just takes time to get into a routine and the ritual of getting ready to pray.. As you are only praying once a day I'm glad it's the evening prayer as it's longest rather than the morning prayer being the shortest. The hardest thing for me about praying was learning to say it in Arabic.

Here's the (US) link to the supplements;
you could call their number and see if they know who their supplier is in Turkey (I know they have a supplier in Turkey because I checked.) Believe me, it was an uphill battle to get my husband to take these pills as they are obviously slated for women. And for sure, they are too expensive for me to take normally. But they have been a good investment for Ramadan. And really, i do suspect that the Omega 3's and the Glucosamine are the "secret sauce" that makes it work.
Thanks for your posts, Abi; I really appreciate them.

But it is an interesting idea that limiting one's food, especially every-other-day, could be so beneficial.
