Ramadhan. Last year was exciting, in full deliberation of modesty and sincerity. Day filled with Quran, night filled with Tarawikh, dawn filed with Qiammullail. Then there’s iktiqaf and iftar. Beautiful.
Ramadhan, this year is a bit doubtful. I feel distance even when its near. I feel fear when everyone is celebrating. Frank, I feel shame. But I have faith and hope. Its all I’ve got to be welcomed in part of this holy month. May I be accepted to received this gift.
Whoever fast Ramadhan with faith and hope (for reward from Allah), their sins in the past are forgiven.
HR Bukhari and Muslim
