Ramadan Links

Asalamu Alaykom,





I have been writing about Ramadan on this blog since 2007.  It's such an important time of the year and in our lives as Muslims. 

I've compiled a chronological index of my posts so that accessing them would be easier.  I haven't always been brilliant in my Ramadan posts but I have always strived to find Allah. 

Inshahallah, you'll find something meaningful in the mix.

Thanks Yosra for sharing all these links. I will make sure to travel back in your blog and read them. As I am not fasting this year, I still want to use this month to learn more about Islam and your blog is one that really talks to me, in all its simplicity.

Take care dear friend.

Asalamu Alaykom Marie,

Well that makes me happy :) I'm glad my blog serves a purpose. As you know, very few people comment. I see the numbers of people who click and they're good alhumdulillah. I just need some feedback that what I'm doing matters...otherwise why spend the time doing it?

In the U.S. we say KISS Keep It Simple, S (either Stupid or Sweetie...I'll choose the later) Sweetie. Islam is a big topic but we don't have to clobber people over the head with it for it to make sense. Alhumdulillah you appreciate that.

I'm not fasting these days either. My health had to come first. Would you believe that I'm STILL not well from the first days of July? I can't. My medication needed regular intervals during the day and the fast wasn't allowing for this. By the third day, I was not well. I am back on a schedule and feeling better alhumdulillah. Another trip to the doctora tomorrow inshahallah.

So, Marie, do what you can to make the most of this month. That's all anyone can do---me included :)

Love and Light!

Keep doing it!!! Most of the time I don't comment bc I feel I have nothing substantial to add to the convo---but I could comment for each of these posts if you wanted...lol...I just feel like you don't have to reply to each one of the comments bc that could get tiring and laborious for you....

Sorry to hear you still aren't feeling well...I know I didn't send my condolences about the miscarriage but I truly am sorry...I meant to but, again, I didn't know what more to say than I am sorry...

xoxo
