Keep Your Thoughts…

I like everything about Ramadan; I like the discipline, the self-control, and the forced slow-down of life for these 30 days. It takes a lot to do these and I think it’s cool that I’m one of the humanity that can say they’ve done this most of their life after I’m 9 feet under. 

But I have one problem: I can’t cuss. Now I should clarify that I don’t actually cuss out-loud even the rest of the year. I just cuss in my head, that’s all. But with Ramadan, at least during the day, I can’t cuss because the thought is the same thing as the action so if I do cuss, my fast automatically becomes Makrooh

Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one who cusses in his head.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Starting on Monday (Sept. 1), for the majority of the Muslim population worldwide will start the holy month of Ramadan. Perhaps this is the first time the majority of the Islamic world will all start Ramadan at the same time, although no one knows if the ending will be as consensus as the start. 

To all my fellow brothers and sisters in the Horn of Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, and everywhere else in the world who are facing ever difficult circumstances, your not far from my mind or supplications. 

I wish all my brothers and sisters a very prosperous month of Ramadan. 

Ramadan Mubarak.

-Om
