Ramadan Day 10

It is so true Yosra. I have been tempted in the past to always envy others, but when I look at my life I know every little joy is a pure blessing and it has to be celebrated for what it is, the perfect blessing for me.

Hope Ramadan is going well and you are able to fast dear.

Asalamu Alaykom Marie,

Nice comment to read! Ya, our lives are tailored to our exact needs----over a lifetime (not just the moment we feel uncomfortable).


Thanks for asking about how Ramadan is going for me. It's been hard, alhumdulillah. Each Ramadan seems to have its own difficulties to overcome. This time it's been all about the post-miscarriage bleeding. Wow. I had nooooo idea it would go on for so long. I was fasting, then stopped for a couple of days. I then could take my medicine at regular intervals and calm my body down. When the doctor said I was OK to fast again I did.

Today, I fasted but was surprised at the amount of blood yet again. It's distressing for real. Subhanallah what women go through. So I broke my fast with the family but decided that I would not be praying and fasting until the blood subsides. It might actually be a period at this point and I'm not sure.

May Allah forgive me for the decisions I make. Sometimes it's not so easy to figure it all out.


I'm going to write soon about those of us who struggle with the fast for one reason or another and end up not fasting BUT not in a thoughtless way. Many of us are truly torn and search for the best way and yet can't.

Anyway...I hope you are your hub get to share some of Ramadan together and that it brings you joy.

I am glad to read you dear. I can only imagine how hard it is for you to be in the middle and not knowing what to do, but surely your intention was there and isn't it the most important.
You see this year it's the same for my husband, he is working hard, not sleeping and once he stopped his legs don't give him any rest. He has to keep the medications going and even if he does not say it I know he is sad not being able to fast. But sometime we don't have the choice and God knows what is in the heart of each one of us. As long as we use this time to get closer to him and closer to the ones in need, in my opinion this matters a lot too.

Sending my love. Marie
