Your energy level is below 0, your stomach is growling and the aroma of samoosa and springrolls just add to the hunger. These last 4 minutes seem like 4 hours. With the kajoor seed already taken out and the zam zam poured into your glass, you sit rather impatiently for the ATHAAN to go.
Mum asks you to please go and fetch the sandwich man sauce from the fridge. You roll your eyes and curse her about 5 times on the way to the kitchen. You bang the fridge door and snap at your baby brother when he asks you to pass him the water which is right next to you. Sound familiar?
Well I can assure you that you are not the only one. But Ramadhaan suppose to be the month of patience and kindness. The month of total bliss and performance of good deeds. Throwing away your reward at the end id like a castle near completion that gets broken down, it is a waste of money and time. I the same light when you utter those few words out of frustration, you are throwing away your reward, so hereunder are a few tips for you:
- Try waking up for sehri, I know it’s cold, but just try and you won’t be that hungry.
- When you get hungry, read the duaa for anger instead of uttering hate speech.
- Make duaa during this blessed time before iftaar because this is the time when duaas are readily accepted.
- And when someone asks you to do something, do it for the pleasure of Allah and Insha’Allah you will be rewarded.
I hope that these tips were of help to you and don’t forget to please remember me in your duaa
