Ramadaan Mubarak!

It's that special time of the year again for Muslims across the world. The time for prayer, worship and reflection. And not forgetting the samoosas, spring rolls and haleem! Mmmm definitely my favourite month of the Islamic year. But mouth watering food aside, this is the auspicious month for all Muslims to unite under the banner of Islam and become the strong Ummah (community) we once were. This is the month of charity to help the widows and the orphans, the starving and the destitute. To remind ourselves that nothing in this world is permanent and that our main goal should be to achieve the highest status in the Hereafter. Let remember our poverty stricken stricken brothers and sisters and try to fill their tummies before we fill ours. Let us forgive all those whom we have hurt and who have hurt us before we ask God to forgive us. Let us make the intention to better ourselves. not just for this month but for the rest of our lives. And let us bask in God's mercy before it's too late..

Wishing all my brothers and sisters in Islam a pious and blessed Ramadaan Mubarak...
