Salam Alaikum.

I will begin observing Ramadan tomorrow. Can't lie it will be tough, since it's the height of the summer, it's hot and we'll be fasting longer. I can't say I've been on my deen lately, but Ramadan always seems to come around just in time to get me back on the right path.

Toronto checking in...fam dat avy tho.... :frown:


yeah i'm excited as well...some things i'm trying to stay away from:

-the kitties :smh:
-fast food after iftar
-piff
-bogeys


as for the gym best time for me is literally 1 hour or 45 mins before you break the fast...all you gotta worry about is pacing yourself when you do break your fast and not OD..

wish the best for all the muslim and non-muslim brothers...some of you non-muslims on here should try a day to understand mind over body to its extreme.

I'm over here in Dubai for work for the next few days. Anything specific Ramadan related that I should be cognizant of other than eating, drinking, smoking, and conservative dress.

Didn't really know about shorts being an issue but I guess I can't have my legs exposed.

This effort takes a considerable amount of discipline.

Do you usually lose a lot of weight during Ramadan?

What are the basic rules? Can eat before sunup and then can't eat again till after the sun goes down?

Salam Alaikum to my Muslim brothers and sisters.

I began fasting today, and I know this will probably be the most difficult fasting month for me yet. I've actually begun to eliminate any negativity and worthless thoughts from my mind to discipline myself into taking it easier to go about my day.

9:04 PM will be Iftar for those on Eastern Standard time.

Inshallah khair, and I hope we can all strive and prosper together during this important time.

from dusk til dawn (this year its from around 4:15AM-9:15PM):

-no food
-no drinking (includes water)
-no chewing gum/candy/ etc.
-no inhalation of smoke
-nothing that excites taste buds to be placed in the mouth purposely
-no injections/blood withdrawal from body/nasal sprays/medication/halls/antiseptics etc.

if you are sick, old, unable to fast, you are not obligated...but "being hungry" and "omg i am going to faint" are not excuses to break your fast...at the end of the day someone who does break their fast will know deep down inside whether or not it was legitimate or not, its no one elses business nor does anyone else care...

the point is that you go back to basic human existence, back to reality, the reminder that half of the world (probably more) live on a constant fast because they have no means or methods to secure food or water...

throughout whole ramadan:

-observe all prayers (should be all year round, but emphasized even more during ramadan)
-no swearing, bad mouthing, back biting, gossiping etc.
-attempt to spend every moment of it as a model human being, almost to the extent where your main goal it to always be there for anyone...show kindness, compassion, etc.
-give charity, donate food to shelters, homeless people, give food to families who cannot afford to eat
-refrain from sex (which should only be with your Wife anyways the rest of the 11 months out of the year :wow:)
