Ramadhan 1436 H

Monday, July 20, 2015

I am not the only one who feels like the month seems to pass in a blink of an eye, no?

This year's Ramadhan is very different from the ones I'd experienced in previous years. I had my break fast meals at home with my family every single day, except for the two times that I wasn't able to fast and had dinner with the gfs and kareshi instead, which is also the only time that I met him during the whole month. For the first time in my life, I completed the whole terawih! To think of it, I did more terawihs this year than I ever had for the past 24 years of my life combined. I also enjoyed my Quran classes at the mosque. Most of the time I left the class wondering what took me so long to start reading and understanding this holy book.

I mean it's weird now that I find it a pleasure when I can read a Japanese(hiragana+katakana) book but I can't say the same for the Quran urghblearghhhh #messeduppriorities

I'm not proud to say this but I never really understood why people are so eager for this month and sad when it's gone cos it feels like any other month to me. But this year it was a completely 180 degree change for me and I thank Him for allowing me to experience it all. The last night of Ramadhan was a very very emotional one, something that the twenty year old me had never felt before. I'm also not proud of who I was during my pre-hijab days about two years ago but I hope I'll be an improved version of myself from now on.

May we continue to be at the best of iman even after this beautiful month is over. *wipes tears*

Okay, moving on to happier things now! Apart from all these, another highlight of this month is....
