My name is Tahera Al- Ghareeb. Im 12 years old.Ive got two sisters and two brothers. I live with my family in Hamad Town which is located in the west of The Kingdom of Bahrain Im in Grade 7 at Hamad Town Intermediate Girls School I like English very much. You must come and visit me in Bahrain. Now … I will tell you about a day in life during the past month of Ramadan.
What is Ramadan? Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Every day during this month, Muslims around the world spend the daylight hours in a complete fast. During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours. As a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self- sacrifice, Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. We are to make peace with those who have wronged us, strengthen ties with family and friends, do away with bad habits -- essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. The Arabic word for "fasting" (sawm) literally means "to refrain" - and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words. During Ramadan, every part of the body must be restrained. The tongue must be restrained from backbiting and gossip. The eyes must restrain themselves from looking at unlawful things. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The ears must refrain from listening to idle talk or obscene words. The feet must refrain from going to sinful places. In such a way, every part of the body observes the fast. Therefore, fasting is not merely physical, but is rather the total commitment of the person's body and soul to the spirit of the fast. Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint; a time to cleanse the body and soul from impurities and re-focus one's self on the worship of God.
The spring of Quran The spring of Quran is the holy month of Ramadan
I woke up early at 6:00 am in Ramadan except at the weekend. I woke up late at 1:00 pm. I went to school and met my friends at 7:30 am. Then, I went back home at 1:30 pm.
N ext, I didn't eat any food or drink any thing, because I was fasting. I used to have a shower and pray. T hen, I slept from 3 o'clock to 5 o'clock in the morning.
When I woke up I helped my mother in the kitchen. Today, I made salad and dessert. My mother cooked Hareesa (which is a porridge with meat). Hareesa.. Is a favourite daily Ramadan dish to Bahraini people. It is wheat mashed with beef and settle in the surface of a pot with a little of vegetable oil. It is a common dish in Ramadan espeially to Bahrainis and the other Arabian Gulf Countries.
At 6:00 pm,After the prayer all the people who are fasting, break their fast. I did my homework at 8:00 o'clock and watched T.V.After that, my sister and I went to sleep.
At 11:00 pm,my family and I eat sahour. Sahour is a kind of supper. For example: milk, bread and cheese. Then, I read some verses from the Holy Quran and went to sleep.
