Ramadan Kareem... Ramadan Mubarak
It's the 1st day of Ramadan. And it's my 2nd year of celebrating and passing the holy month of Ramadan in Korea. Ramadan Kareem. May Allah's blessings come to all of us everyone in this world.
What would a Ramadan be without one of its typical fruit: dates! Whenever Ramadan comes, dates come from different part of the world to be sold at Itaewon or any other shops where Muslim community resides.
This one, I got a special gift from friends in Uijeongbu.
Well....Ramadan also means big business. Although I am sure that it surely is not from Korea, this kind of ad is eye-catching.
This BK knows his lot in 'wittily twisting' its ad so as to match the holy month.^-^
In Korea, we follow the Korea Muslim Federation's rulings to serve the Ramadan. They provide us with information about the start of the Ramadan. Even, last week they provided us with the schedule of Ramadan.
Fajr (break of the dawn) starts at 03.26 and that means that we must have our sahur (pre-fasting meal) in the wee hour of 2.30 a.m.
Magrib (fasting breaking time) is at 7.57 p.m.
That means.... in Korea .....we should refrain ourselves from eating and drinking and other should-not-do's from dawn till dusk for app. 16 hours 30 minutes.
But...apart from that, one thing we should heed to is....by sleeping less, and praying more during this Holy Month of Ramadan.
"semoga puasa Ramadan kali ini, saya dan sekeluarga bisa genap dan menjalaninya dengan baik dengan Ridho-mu, Ya Allah'
