My Ramadan After Day 1


Halo, assalamu alaikum.

Alhamdulillaah, great days are here: Ramadan days.

This year's Ramadan we fast for about 13 hours. It's always like this here in Indonesia, alhamdulillah.

There are days when we fast for 14 hours a day when Ramadan comes in summer time in Southern Hemisphere. This is May, so it's autumn di Southern Hemisphere.

We thank Allah this is a sunny and cheerful Ramadan. Several years ago we had Ramadan on June. The weather was chilly. Alhamdulillah.

Ramadan has been 7 days now. Tomorrow morning will be Ramadan 8 insya Allah.

My sons have fasted for 7 consecutive days. They are really grown up now masya Allah. They have been fasting with less and less drama.

I also had no serious problem during these days masya Allah, except for one thing: I feel like losing energy too soon.

After Ramadan Day 1, I felt weaker these last three days. I hope it is because my body is still adapting to new habits.

I usually wake up at 2 or 2.30 for preparing suhoor. From that time I almost didn't have a chance to sleep until my tot's sleeping time.

He sleeps and so do I.

In the morning after fajr prayer I do the laundry. I do it as quick as possible because Mr. Admiral usually wakes up soon after and asks for my attention.

After Mr. Inventor and Mr. Professor have gone to school, I have Mr. Admiral take a shower and have breakfast. After that, I go shopping for groceries, take a rest with my third son and do noon prayer.

Cooking for iftar is in 2 p.m. I finish cooking at about 3 p.m. then I do asr prayer, take a bath an prepare Mr. Admiral's late lunch.

At about 4 p.m. I'm ready for taking a walk with Mr. Admiral.

When magrib comes, we have iftar together at home, do magrib prayer and wait for isya prayer by having conversation with my kids.

I usually take a short sleep after isya azan and wake up for doing isya and taraweeh prayer.

And days will be like that all over again.

What about your Ramadan after day 1?
