My Fasting Review
Today is 8th day of Ramadhan. So far I have been fully-fasting even though i breastfeed my baby plus the 18 hrs fasting duration and even had 2 times missed the sahur! MasyaAllah. Alhamdulillah.
Here, we break fast at 2041 and we must sahur before 0259. So we just have only about 6 hrs to eat, drink, and solat terawikh. And they can't be done peacefully! Hihi. But, we already get used to it. ;)
In the beginning, the spirit to cook was there but now it vanishes into thin air. Sigh. The only special menu so far was nasi lemak, sambal tumis crabstick, ikan bawal hitam sweet sour and pizza that we had yesterday. Still, it turned out to be so-so..sigh. Kinda sad..uh. But hubby is always being sweet by saying issokay, sedap ;P nway tq darling! Hihihi.
First time sahur, I had eaten rice but in smaller quantity than during breakfast. Afraid that my tummy can't stand to fast up to 18 hrs but once i made it without bersahur, I hadn't eaten rice. I joined hubby's who take lighter something like a bowl of cereal, couple toasts with milky drink and not forgotten, a plain water, a date and alfalfa to boost my BM! As i expected, it did wonder!! Alhamdulillah, mencurah2 n murah rezeki zafri. ;) Credit to hadha for alfalfa n my mom who has posted it last week. Tq!;)
So, 7 days down, 23 days to go! Hopefully, I could fully fast till the end of Ramadhan. InsyaAllah! May Allah make it easy for me, hubby no matter how challenging it is. Also, i wish i can khatam(finish) all the 30 juzuks of al-Quran in this holy month. Amin!
Lastly, happy fasting and tadarus to my Muslim friends too!:)
