Welcome, Ramadan! Ramadan Mubarak

Or do you say Ramadan Mubarakhom if you mean ya’ll? :-) I know my Muslim friends have awaited this season with eagerness. Who would think? At the very hottest time of the year, our Muslim friends will not be eating, drinking, or smoking cigarettes from dawn to dusk. This is the time of year when if you do something evil, you cannot blame Satan, because he is banned, the evil you do comes from inside your heart. You cannot backstab (gossip).

You meet with family and friends and eat foods that delight the heart when the sun goes down. You spend the month in holy scripture, refining your soul to become more pleasing to God/Allah.

I wish you all the very best in your holy month of Ramadan, time with God, time with family, and time in the stillness of your soul connecting to the great Creator. :-)

    Thank you for your kind wishes and a Happy Ramadan to you and your family , This year the days of Ramadan are congruent with the days of August ,so it makes it easier to switch between the dates

  6. Ramadan greetings to your family, Hayfa, and to your mother :-) I wish you all only the very best. Put Pensacola on the bucket list! :-)

    Daggero – how often does that happen? It is as rare, I would think, as it is convenient! :-) Thank you for your kind wishes. :-)
