Ramadan Mubarak!
    #2045781 - 10/26/03 11:10 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Today with the new moon on the lunar calender commemorates the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan, which is also the month where Prophet Muhammad received some of the first revelations from the angel Jibreel. Ramadan Kareem. The last to catch up with the start of Ramadan will be Japan on October 28th.

Today was a fairly easy first day, being Sunday I slept in until 4:30 pm (Although I was up earlier for Fajr), and it was dark by 7 o`clock; although I didn't eat until about 15 minutes ago. Through out the month, during the day I am to exert strength in basic will power over to achieve a closeness to God. I have also taken it upon myself not to smoke cigarettes or pot until later in the evening, because I am doing this for the pleasure of myself and God, not because it's 'prescribed'. Like many of the Naqshbandiyya, I will be attending zikr sessions that will take place in complete darkness on various weekends through the Holy month. I will also retreat to Shaol Lake near my residence to meditate, pray, and fast by myself in order to contemplate on myself and Allah. For me it is a month of recollection, remembrance, and 'Irfan. My goal is to empty myself. This year's Ramadan finally has the old child hood feeling I used to get at Christmas.

I love you all,

Ramadhan Mubarak!

Here's to hoping this Ramadan brings you closer to the relationship you seek with God and humanity, brother.  :sun:
