Ramadan and other events

Ramadan Mubarak to all. It has been days since I last posted and I have a million ideas hovering in my head waiting to be manifested in a post, but alas I seem not to be able to get myself to write one whole post, I have written several drafts that never seem to be complete.

First I wanted to post about how it seems that there are two worlds out there in Ramdan, one world where Ramadan means a lazy day and then a festive night eating and drinking and Arigila the whole night, accompanied by playing cards. The other world is where people see Ramadan as a precious time that they wait for the whole year long, to them it’s the time to get closer to one self and to Allah and ask for his forgiveness and graces, they are people you see at " taraweeh". On may way home from Taraweh I pass through Rabia, where the two worlds collide people coming out of the "kaluti " mosque and the dwellers of coffee shops in Rabia.

Then I thought the above was not enough for a post, I wanted to post something about Ramadan and how a great and peaceful time it is, and about the best three hours to make advantage of, which are: the first hour of the day after fajir sinace it’s the time your " riziq" will be set for the day and being awake for it is a great advantage for you, besides praying fajir in jama3a and then staying in the masjid till day break and then praying do7a is equal to an "omrah", the second hour is the last hour of the day, since you have as a person who is fasting a prayer every day that is answered before you break your fasting. The third hour is just before fajir since it’s the last part of the night in which Allah answers prayers, but I thought this post should be in Arabic so did nothing about it.

The third thing that came to mind was yesterday while I was cleaning the book shelves with mom, well I think I will post about this some day when I have time.

I forgot to tell you, my boss has just approved my vacation it starts tomorrow and till after the Eid, so Yippy I'm so happy : ) by the way did I tell you that I'm going to Omrah this year during the last ten days in Ramdan, so if any one wants a prayer there leave me a comment.

Sorry this must be a very painful read, but I'm just too excited about Ramdan and about my vacation and definitely about Omrah.

All for now...

Dear Sister,

First I need to remind you to make du3a2 for me that Allah strengthens my Iman, make me die as a Muslim, and forgive my sins. That is Amanah attached to your neck.
Second, you chose the best time for 3umrah, so I ask Allah to accept it and reward you for it.

I was waiting for some one to write about that issue because that is one issue that puzzles me a lot. Just how the media present Ramadan, with “Kahyma Ramadaniah”, and that kahaymah is full of sins against what Ramadan stands for, as all what are being done in it are 7aram. Some will mix the 7aram with some aspects of da3wah and worship. That is so cheap technique to escape the accountability. We all should be against such practices and not be quiet about it.
The mafsidyoon, on the other hand compete in this month to bring the best entertaining show and play it in the time of iftar or just right after so people's mind will be with it while they pray if they go to the Masjid to start with.
Hatha min 3amal alshytan, and I wonder how Allah is patient with us and not destroy us because of sins that we insist on doing every Ramadan, as if we challenge Allah

Hadana Allahu Jamee3an lil7aq
