Assalamualaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakatuh,
Insyaallah bulan Ramadhan yang penuh berkah ini akan segera meninggalkan kita untuk kembali lagi setahun mendatang.
Kiranya dengan Rahmat Allah SWT kita masih akan diizinkan untuk kembali bertemu dengannya di tahun yang akan datang.
Tiada ibadah yang sempurna bagi seorang manusia, tapi tidak ada sedikit pun usaha menyempurnakannya yang sia-sia.
Seperti manusia pun juga tidak ada yang tercipta, terlahir, menjalani hidup, sampai akhirnya kembali ke alam-Nya dengan kesempurnaan.
Kiranya dengan hari yang Fitri ini bisa jadi momentum kita untuk terus belajar, terus meningkatkan kualitas ibadah, kualitas hubungan antar personal, terutama kualitas kita secara individu agar layak mendapat berkah Allah.
Selamat Hari Raya Iedul Fitri,
Today is the last day of the 9th month of Islamic calendar, the holy month of Ramadan .
It's the month of physical fasting (no food or drink during daylight, no sex 😋), spiritual fasting (you pray extra hard, do good deeds, abstain from bad deeds and thoughts, stay away from Satan), and emotional fast (keep anger, doubts at bay). Only people with medical conditions, kids below 10, pregnancy, days you re in period are excuse for no fasting.
I knew few Muslim people and thought they are too religious. Until I got this hunger to know more, to understand more.
I fasted first three days... Many insights. i.e. I realized how lucky we are to have food or water ANY time we want!
God provides us with all. God makes sure our needs are met. Why not show a little extra dedication?) I am the person who likes to learn things first hand, I like to experience things. Experience is the best teacher.
Tomorrow people can have a regular breakfast. Not break fast aka "iftar" the first meal in the evening.
And tomorrow I'm excited for the festival Eid, Hari Raya Aidilfitri in Malay. Elsewhere you can greet your Muslim friends with "Eid Murabak". It's a great holiday in Malaysia! .
This is my 7th year of being a dedicated explorer in my home city. I just wish, I could share all those memories with you. Blogging was never really my thing. I just took pictures of what I liked and shared them hence even if they were a mess. Now it's all about execution and lugging around my Nikon camera. I never intended on being a blogger but I am passionate about what I do. By passionate, I mean taking the time to explore these places in Port Elizabeth and I'm studying Tourism Management. I'll try my best to capture Port Elizabeth's gems. This is a crazy endeavor and I thank my friends and family for supporting me. Today, I sit in front of beans with wings amped to experience what this cafe has to offer. This is lengthy but I thought why not give you viewers a background of my story. 💗😁
