A little notes about me and Ramadhan 1433H

Fasting month is like an idle month from active days and it is definitely a looong day for me. But it turns otherwise in the night time. I barely had good time for surfing the internet, watching series or even getting updated on E! news :P  and speaking about updating the blog? Ahh.., just forget it.

Since I moved in my new house, I rarely cooked, despite the well-equipped kitchen that I have set earlier. Back in my mind, I had planned to cook the proper meals throughout the upcoming fasting month. Yes, I hate to be in the crowded places, and bazaar Ramadhan is one of them.

Ramadhan appeared, and little that I expected, for almost three weeks of working in Ramadhan,  I was invited for iftar  at numerous restaurants and hotels almost everyday. (Kudos to Pae to be generous enough to seret me with her). Praise to Allah s.w.t. =).  Unfortunately, I didn't snap any pictures of them as usual. It is so apparent that I was too occupied counting the ticking clock rather than snapping the different iftar atmospheres and meals at the different places. Hmmph. What a loss.

                       The only meal that I snapped at Awana Kijal and after that- I was lost savouring the scrumptious meals

Nevertheless, towards the end of fasting month, I cooked my meal - for once and after ages . And the result was not so satisfying,tho. Huhu.

One of wonderful things during this Ramadhan is that I managed to fulfill my wish to complete the terawih prayers for all days that were allowable. Praise be to Allah s.w.t, another wish was granted by His Mercy, at last I managed to complete (khatm) the Quran in the Holy month. When the last 10 days approaching, I prayed hard that I would get the opportunity to 'meet' the night of Lailatul Qadar.

 For that matter, I made some readings to understand how the night of Lailatul Qadr is like and the signs of it. Guided by the readings and  the talk by ustaz, every morning after the odd nights, I looked at the sunshine. Until one day, when I opened the door for work, I could feel that the air outside was colder and the morning was extraordinarily soothing. It was on 27th of Ramadhan. The sun shone unusual than other day. Indeed, it was a fascinating view, wasn't it?

And more interesting when I found this hadith which reads

I thu asked Ubayy b. Ka'b (Allah be pleased with him): Your brother (in faith) Ibn Mas'ud says: He who stands (for the night prayer) throughout the year would find Lailat-ul-Qadr, whereupon he said: May Allah have mercy upon him; (he said these words) with the intention that people might not rely only (on one night), whereas he knew that it (Lailat-ul-Qadr) is in the month of Ramadan and it is the twenty-seventh night. He then took oath (without making any exception, i. e. without saying Innsha Allah) that it was the twenty-seventh night. I said to him: Abu Mundhir, on what ground do you say that? Thereupon he said: By the indication or by the sign which the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) gave us, and that is that on that day (the sun) would rise without having any ray in it. - Sahih Muslim

Allah knows best if it was the morning after Lailatul-Qadr happened. All I wish was that my prayers and all amalan are accepted which in results, turns me into a better muslimah. Amiin~
