SAYING THANK YOU!

Ramadan is the time of year all Muslims look forward to, but this clearly was unexpected.

 

We all have been anxious and stressed due to the current situation but it is time to accept reality. By embracing Ramadan and all its teaching, we may be able to refrain from all sorts of negativity and anxiety. We still have a lot to be thankful for and Ramadan is the perfect time for practicing the art of gratefulness. Here’s a list of things we all should truly appreciate. Today. Now. At this moment.

 

1. FAMILY (ONLINE TOO)

 

The most important people are our family. The current situation has somehow put us closer together. We can help out, talk, and interact with them even more. Our busy schedules sometimes made it hard for us to spend time with them before. Why not make the most of this before it starts all over again? Whether they are home with you or afar, allocate some time for all. WiFi isn’t down, is it? Something else to be grateful for too!

 

2. DELICIOUS MEALS

 

We are still able to eat regularly and enjoy meals. Ramadan is not all about food, but it is certainly a central aspect of it. We have to be grateful that we are still able to have the proper food and afford it. Too obvious a point? Watch the news.

 

3. ABILITY TO FAST IS A BLESSING ITSELF

 

Maintaining and fasting properly greatly reduces our sins. It also gives us plenty of health benefits. So being physically able to maintain the process of fasting is certainly rewarding. If you can complete the 30 days of fasting without any illness then that in itself is a reward!

 

4. ALONE TIME CAN BE A REMEDY

 

Sometimes all you need is a little time for yourself. Isolation can sometimes be good for mental health. Ramadan helps further slows things down for us. It gives us time to reflect upon the choices we made, are making, and will make. We must pay tribute to the comfort of the bed, and the reduction of noise and hassle at the very least. It’s honestly peaceful outside.

 

5. SIMPLE THINGS

 

This Ramadan we won’t be able to go out to fancy restaurants or spend a bucketload on meals with friends and colleagues. But that’s a good thing! We can make our own iftars and save up. Imagine this to be a watered-down rendition of those madmen who survive in the forest for a month, eating berries and appreciating the rawness of nature. We’re better off (with Netflix and YouTube) and can still enjoy the wonders of food for a fraction of what we spent before, with regard to time, effort, and money.

 

Stay indoors and enjoy the little things. After all, it’s the little things that matter the most.
