How do you feel about starting the Ramadan fast this year Ibrahim?
I do not feel excited about it because, the idea of giving up food and drinks throughout the day is not exciting, but I know i have to do because it what I believe is right.
I cannot wait for the Eid al-Fitr festival. This years ceremony will the very memorable for me and my family. We hope that this Ramadan period has given us the strength to push through and have success in our endeavors.
Amen. My family and I are already preparing a feast for the neighbors. This fasting period has really put a strain on my family, so we are very excited.
Where would you be observing your Mi'raj ceremony? I will be saying my prayers and attending the special sermons in the Mosque because I feel more spiritually enlightened when I say observe the festival there with my family.
That is amazing, but me and my family would prefer to observe the festival at home because it is more intimate and we are able to discuss and reflect on the importance of this special day, read the scriptures and say our prayers together. It has become our tradition to stay at home.
