We’re almost in the middle of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting. It is truly hard to believe how fast it is flying by. *sigh*
Along with fasting, Muslims around the world take time out of their day to slow down and reflect on the gifts God has bestowed upon them. They pray extra prayers and spend time in worship. Since I’m not fasting this year (nursing my daughter), I spend time reflecting on the past year- the good and the bad. I think about my
character and what changes I need to make in myself to become a better person, a better Muslim. I also spend time reading the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. I pray to God in earnest to make me a better person, to forgive my wrongs and to grant peace and tranquility to all those in pain and suffering.
