Yes it is. Alhamdulillah, we're all in pink health to welcome yet another month of Ramadhan. Another chance to purify ourselves through self-restraint and good deeds.
This year, insyallah, my little diva - my first born will complete a month of fasting. Last year she made it with 11 days. Well done my sweetie! I must say, she started earlier than me. I was only fasting at the age of 9, I think. Even then, by 4 p.m I was so weak I couldn't talk. Of course, my older brother helped a lot by taunting and calling out all my favourite food!
It's not just about fasting - I really hope my daughter will understand the true meaning of Ramadhan. And I try not to promise her rewards in return but instead firming her belief that true rewards come from Allah S.W.T. (Note the word "try" because kids being kids, tangible and instant rewards are most gratifying to them). What matters to me now is that she tries her best and embrace the meaning to it. That's enough for now. I know she'll be a good muslimah. Better than me, I hope.
Here's my girl at sahur, eager to bake for breaking fast :-)
