yeah, So do I. So, Why am I thinking about marriage? Could it be I've reached the ripe young age? hehe... I am in a romantic stupor about all kinds of things. I see all these sweet marriage where people get married and are in love and sweet to each other. It makes me believe that there really is something holy about marriage. I do believe that God ordained this. Marriage is a sweet thing. But so many people today are unfit to be married. I know I am! If you are selfish and can't take care of yourself, you have no business getting married. I'm for marriage all the way. I just think its sad to see how so many marriages start too soon and end way too early! Divorce rips people apart. God is the only giver of marital bliss. God, please give me a good marriage with the good one.
Shaum/Sawm is one of The Five Pillars of Islam. Ramadan (a complete fasting), we do the fast for about 29 or 30 days in a row. It is the Holy Month for Muslims. Those twelve years old and above must complete their fast from dawn to sunset. I've started to teach my child to fast from the last two years when he was 6 years old, even he's just done his first fast for only a couple hours, at least he tried. There are many even as young as four or five are encouraged to fast for a few hours a day during Ramadan by their parents. It's to begin appreciating the significance of the Holy month of Ramadan. Alhamdulillah , I'm very grateful, this Ramadan my son now is 8 years old and so excited about following Ramadan completely.
