Today Ramadan started and it was the best day of the year.
I know it means not eating during dawn and dusk, but I respect my religion and God, Allah. I had to get up at 5:30 this morning to have Breakfast before dawn, but I suppose it’s not as bad as it would be in the summer.This month (Ramadan) is the best month in the year, as it is the Ninth month on my calendar.
Also we show Allah that we respect him in many ways. I’ve always thought that non-Muslim people should join in, in Ramadan as it shows that everyone is equal and it show them to respect their God. If you are thinking in a religious way.
Also that religion is important and showing their living their lives for God.Anyway tomorrow I have school in Bishopston and I love school, however it gets a bit off-putting when you can’t eat and everyone’s tempting you and you’re not allowed any thing past your lips unless you’re ill of course. This is in obedience to the Qur’ an: O you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may learn self-restraint.I love Ramadan; it’s something to look forward to. Like Christmas for example, all my friends celebrate that.
August 21stMy School dayThe buzzer went, it was registration. I talked with my friends about McDonalds which made me rather hungry, but I ignored my stomach. Then 1st lesson I had maths it was o.
k., because we just did sums all lesson. 2nd lesson I had R.S. That was fun because we talked about how hard it must be to be a Muslim and to do Ramadan. Miss said tomorrow every one in the year will be joining in for a day, how fun!Great, next break, However the smell of Sausage buttes and Bacon buttes was taking over. No I must keep myself occupied. The boys started making fun of me, so I turned my back on them and walked away.
3rd lesson Drama, I love Drama I find it amazing and when I do Drama I feel free and magical. There were no problems there. 4th lesson I had science. By this time I was getting a little hungry. ‘Ignore the stomach’ I kept on saying.
That lesson went on for ages, at last it finished.This time of year I am always on my own at Lunchtimes because all the others go to have lunch and forget all about me, but I don’t blame them. It looks as though food is more important than looking after a friend. I know it not very kind, but I think food is more important to them.5th lesson, Welsh. I normally like Welsh, but today, however we were learning about food in welsh, but at least I can say “I don’t want anything thanks”.
Last lesson English, which was great, because we were making a game from Oliver Twists time.I went home on the bus and my stomach was rumbling and the journey seemed to go on for hours. When I eventually got home my family was waiting and they all asked me questions at the same time. I was so confused because I hadn’t eaten for a long time, that I fainted.
By the time I had recovered it was dark, and we all celebrated the second day and my recovery by a big feast.That was my day. Difficult, but capable. I wonder what tomorrow will be like.
September 20thWe had the Eid-ul-Fitr festival today and I thourghly enjoyed it. It’s going to carry on tomorrow without me because I’ve got to go to school but afterwards I’m going to have my own party.Eid-ul-Fitr celebrates the end of the Ninth month, Ramadan. The month of fasting and Heralded by the sight of the new moon. Congregational prayers are offered and special foods prepared. New clothes are often bought for the festival and presents may be given. Sending card wishing EID MUBARAK (a happy or blessed festival) is a growing custom.
This has to be the best time of the year because you’ve done your job time for the party. Like a show you have fun performing it and have a celebration afterwards. As if to say ‘well done that was…. Fantastic…!’ You’re just being congratulated for enjoyable month and also enjoying your self.* Ramadan is the ninth month on the Muslim calendar.* At the End of Ramadan there is a celebration called Eid-ul-Fitr and it lasts about two days.* Ramadan lasts for 30 days.* You can’t do Ramadan if you’re elderly, ill or too young.* If you give up you either have to start again or make a meal for 60 people at the end of Ramadan.* During Ramadan you do not eat between dawn and dusk.
