Ramadan reflection

This is beautiful & worth reading..
Very beneficial ...
------- Many of us feel inadequate this Ramadan. Long hours of fasting with short nights makes it hard for those of us who are parents of young kids, or those of us working full time, or those of us who are unable to fast, "FEEL" Ramadan. We can't do the extra worship we used to and even when we get in our extra Qur'an or pray in the mosque we can't even concentrate, so we end up just feeling lame.
But what we really need is a perspective shift.
We need to recognize that taking care of the future generation, providing financial support for ourselves and loved ones or taking care of our health are some of the highest forms of worship in and of themselves. We just need to make the intention and internally shift our perspectives.

Ramadhan with Nusaybah

Yesterday was the first time my Nusaybah (5 years and 7 months) attempted to fast from lunch (1:30pm) till maghrib (9:24pm).  she wasn't complaining ماشاء الله  apart from the time she saw her little sister had dinner at 6pm! Lol
When ifthar time arrived, I could see the excitement and happiness, while we were sitting and made دعاء together on the dinner table, she kept asking:" can I eat now? Is it time for ifthar now?" For 5-6 times! 
I then reminded her the Hadith about the two happiness of those who fast 1. When they break their fast 2. When they meet Allah ﷻ due to the reward of their fasting
She eventually understood and stopped asking
Today, I asked her again if she wants to fast again, she said:" I don't think so mama, I will be sooo hungry like yesterday" lols
She then asked: "so how long are you going to fast mama?"
"29 or 30 days ان شاءٓ الله " I said
What makes me happy and touched the most is her next comment:
"I hope the Ramadan w…
