Ramadhan Kareem.

Ramadhan is here, Ramadhan is here. What a delight. Comes once a year, a very special month for all Muslims around the world. Ah, also a time for food. I'm sure everybody can relate to that, right, Foooooooooood. But you know, I think there's more to it than just food bazaars. If you're the observant type, you would undoubtedly notice that bazaars happen to multiply each time Ramadhan is comes. Some people think that's one of the reasons why Ramadhan is so sweet like cinnamon. Well, those who have no clue on what Ramadhan is about, I think; and that is the true meaning behind this very special month.
Here, is a time, when all Muslims would rise even before the clock ticks 4am. When all Muslims would increase their comings and goings to the mosque, and most importantly, read the holy Qur'aan al-Kareem; decipher the already given meaning. Each sentence, each word, each ayah, are the holy words of Allah S.W.T.
I know there's gotta be some hidden meaning behind each sentence. One has got to be able to truly understand it, not just reading it simply. Of course, when someone reads the Qur'aan, it flows beautifully from the mouth, but I do hope that it flows from the heart as well. And then only one is able to interpret what he has read.
You could still prance around food bazaars, buy bags and bags and bags and bags of food, but don't lose sight of the tiny details that are around you. Embrace Ramadhan as it is here, quickly grab the opportunity that Allah has given us all, a chance. So what are you waiting for? Jump in.
