Ramadhan Thoughts..

















What started as daily emails to friends and colleagues a few years ago..

Then became a 'Scheme' ..

The aim is simple:
A thought a day throughout the month of Ramadhan for people (yes people: whatever their faith) to add to their cyber time during the Blessed Month.

Etiquettes:
1. Send an email to your Ramadhan Thoughts e-group before you start the Scheme to ask if you have their permission to send them email each day! Some people don't check their emails every day and although we have moved on from the 2MB era - its still polite to ask!

2. Copy and paste the Thought daily and send one per day, you may send the link to this original too.

3. Please use BCC if you are emailing more than one person!

InshaAllah - By the Will of God Almighty it is my desire that this year the 'Original Thoughts' that I had all that time ago (which a keen colleague of mine actually kept on his work machine!) will be accompanied with a picture here (if Blogger behaves).

Why am I doing this?
Never question. Just let others do what they need to :-)

I form the minority of Muslims who don't fast in Ramadhan. Due to a reason or another - I fall into a catergory of people who by the Grace of God Almighty are allowed to 'not fast' thus I endevour in a struggle to seek out creative ways to invigorate my spirit!

Peace & Prayers

Cool idea - I think if I did that, some recipients would love me and others would hate me.

I've only recently started looking into Islam and I don't know much yet - please pardon my ignorance but I've never heard of anything about being allowed to "not fast".

This must sound so bad but I really love food and I find fasting so difficult. I like doing other things to strengthen my relationship with Allah though.

I wanted to ask how can I fall into this category of not having to fast? Or is it more complicated than that? Is there a website I can read?

Thank you.

Walaikumsalam my darling

Fiqr NOT!

To fall into the catergory simply become one of the following mentioned in these articles:

http://www.aljazeerah.info/Islam/Islamic%20subjects/2004%20subjects/November/Exemption%20From%20Fasting,%20Adil%20Salahi.htm

It's really not recommended my dearest :-( as people in my camp often feel very sad at not being able to fast. However I guess it is a Mercy from God Almighty! Rather that than become ill!!

My darling - I know we all like our food - but I guess it's only when one DOESN'T eat they can empathise with those in Niger, or those stuck out there in the cold streets of London (homeless).

Also, one can do everything else to please friends, fiends and the like - but do ya love God enought o give up y'er food for Him?? eh? eh?

In the case of some recipients loving you and others hating you - simple answer my dear: Only send to those who'll love ya!

Wasalam
