Ramadhan in Toulouse

Alhamdulillah, this is second time we celebrate month of Ramadhan in Toulouse. We are really grateful to Allah through all HIS gift of healthy to go through this holy month. As the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said: “It is Allah’s Own month”. It is the chief of all month and the most glorious one. Definitely, we have to seize the opportunity of this bestowal blessedness month of Ramadhan which is not limited to fasting alone, because the performance of all sorts of worship and good deeds during this month is also a source of great Divine favour.

I still remember last year having a break fast alone as my hubby was in Paris trip for Industrial exposure purpose. It was our first time Ramadhan as husband and wife …huhu.. what a sad moment it was. But the worst was last 2 years when I was in Japan for the reason of work, experience Ramadhan and Syawal alone in office. Huhu.. Flashback that time when my kind-hearted US boss and my project team try to enliven me by treat me a sashimi and sushi in one of well-known restaurant in Tokyo. Yeah.. they might cheer me up a bit, nevertheless myself keep resist, Oh plssss.. I wanted rendang and lemang, not sushi and sashimi. Really wish afterwards, my life’s journey won’t be lonely again. Insya Allah.

Miss u guys..

My new daily routines for Ramadhan begin as early as 4.30am, preparing food for ‘sahur’. Lucky my junior always wake up around that time for BF so that we don’t have to rely on alarm to awake us. My hubby always let me sleep till 9 am (could be 10 am sometimes, huhu) so that I have enough rest and energy during day time. So for morning shift, my hubby will look after Farrel since he usually wakes up at 7am. Around 5.00pm, I start busy preparing food for break fast which always cracks my head searching recipe especially for desert. In Malaysia for sure I’ll buy from ‘Bazar Ramadhan’ which varieties of ‘kuih muih’ are sold there. My mom always calls them ‘kuih tunjuk-tunjuk’. Heheh.. I really miss this ‘Bazar Ramadhan’ especially in Kamunting where my favourite ‘nasi kerabu’ was selling there. Hope this year we have a chance to visit the ‘Bazar Ramadhan’ again.

This year also give us a chance to have a ‘tadarus’ together which we frustrated for last year because we just reach ‘juzuk 26’ infact of ‘juzuk 30’. So for this year, we need to be more discipline in order to achieve our target to finish till ‘juzuk 30’, Insya Allah. As we know that the revelation of the Holy Quran commenced during this very month and it is therefore the duty of every Muslim to read and try to understand the meaning of the Holy Al-Quran. Thereby we can gain an insight into the Divine secrets enshrined therein. Besides, it brings peace and illumination to the mind and imparts purity to the soul.

OK, let us take this month of Ramadhan opportunity by:
1. Learn Islam with ambition
2. Observe Islam with sincerity
3. Practice Islam with Discipline (Sunnah)
4. Spread Islam with truth and kindness

Till then.
