Ramadan… A month of discipline, faith, and worship… a time where we cleanse our minds, bodies, and souls.
This is a month I desire, for it is marked as holy for many reasons, the ones I’m sharing are the ones I see with my own eyes, and feel in my heart.
It becomes holy by the people around, everyone change in this time of the year, because its the month where everyone should behave, and tries to better him/her self. I see beloved ones stop smoking, drinking, and trying to tame their tongues, people show kindness to one another, only good deed is permitted, and everyone tries to maintain them selves more than any time of the year, for one month, for only a month, because no one can go on for the rest of their lives, we were created weak, so we can better our selves.
People who don’t share the faith share their congratulations, they show the kind gesture of supporting us by refraining from food in our presence. We get to invite them to share with us the magic created by the women in the kitchen, and we share the good times afterwards, where we get to unbutton our trousers and sit to see the many shows dedicated for our time of the month, mostly funny stuff.
We fast, a form of discipline, where we have nothing until the time where the sun sets. And then, family and beloved ones sit around, to eat, appreciating the manna of the food and drink. I love how women of our house hold excel in the kitchen (though I think its because they are driven by hunger).
This month is the only real magic I witnessed though my whole life. Seeing how people change, and how our families become closer, I feel like passing the threshold into another dimension, where people are kinder, and families and beloved ones are closer.
I wish every one a happy Ramadan, a month that becomes holy by the people, may it be a month where experiences are gained, of life and faith.
