Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims. Is the hardest month on people away from their families and homes. Not only is it tasteless and even painful for people away, but it also adds emotional pain on top of everything physical a fasting person has to endure during the Fast
Most people around us, are completely unaware what a fasting person is going through. Most don’t know or even care that you are fasting or not. It doesn’t matter to them at all.
Don’t get me wrong, Fasting is a religious ritual that is amazingly beautiful. It helps people of faith bond more with god. It helps the body cleans and detoxify from all poisons that filled our life physically and spiritually. It’s our opportunity to clear our minds, souls and hearts from the illnesses that have been clutching to them all through the year.
Many wait for Ramadan, impatiently as their chance to seek forgiveness for the sins that have been accumulating for years. But for those attempting to practice it away from home, there’s a huge toll to pay. There’s no one to take care of things, or help them through things. Most have to break their fast all alone in their homes. Or with a very limited group of friends. Most are busy, most are too consumed by life and getting the job done to be able to have the warmth of a family or to enjoy a real breakfast feast. Like the ones back home..
It’s really the toughest Month, it’s even harder than trying to maintain our individuality or identity away from home. May god help us through this tough month and accept our fasting and prayers
