Third Day of Ramadan - The Real Meaning of Puasa

A reminder to all of us who are observing the fasting month and those who doesn't, something for me to share with you. ^^

It's from Wardina's FB page and I whole heartedly agree.

It's Friday folks!

Weekends is almost here.

I'm planning to either do a longish run tonight or really early tomorrow morning. Can't go to Putrajaya, what with the car being "sick" so I'll just settle with running in loops for 2-3 hours around my carpark. No use whining. Just do! ^^

  2. I really salute those of you who can fast without fail. As for me, I don't think I can fast as I get hungry very fast.

  5. Being a Muslim, there are 5 rules right?
    pay zakat, go Mekah (if affordable), pray 5 times a day, must fasting and another is belief in Allah.

    1. So for women how you usually plan for "ganti puasa"?

      Delete
    2. No plan. Just do it. :-D

    3. By the way, the "rules" you mentioned : it's known as "Five Pillars of Islam" and is five formal acts of worship which help strengthen a Muslim's faith and obedience.

      There is also "Articles of Faith"; which is the basic beliefs of Muslims.

  6. yeah, i always think alike too.. ramadhan is more about controlling your desire and a way to actually cleanse your body as well as soul..

    1. but somehow to most of the people out there that are not quite sensitive about the true meaning of fasting - it all turns into buka puasa feasts.. how pathetic..

      Delete
    2. Very correct SK. Its a time to cleanse the body physically & spiritually.

      must not talk nonsense so much now too. :-D

      Delete
    3. i am sure you had your own way to achieve the true meaning of this holy month.. as i see you never feast and eat a lot, but rather simple iftar and suhur just for the sake of not feeling hungry, instead of many who tends to over eat..

      Delete
    4. you've read my jibe at FB about the feasting, right?

      Oh yeah, I must not jibe or give snide remarks now. ;-)

      Delete
    5. ngek ngek, and i was right, your car is "sick" in its "hospital" and you won't be able to go far to run.. better lah, looping around the carpark and let your neighbours see this Mak Glam mah~~ :p

      Delete
    6. Ramadhan Kareem!! no jibe this month, but rather turn your jibe into sharing with kind intention.. muahahahaha!! :D

      Delete

  8. betul tu....same like others religions eg christmas...now commercialised already and forgotten the real meaning of christmas

    ReplyDelete

    1. So true meow. Once I heard a pastor telling people that Christmas is a holy day and not to get too merry and drunk with hangovers. This woke me up because I grew up with such thoughts when I was younger.

      Delete
    2. now Xmas is more of a retailers party pulak. Very over commercialised. Those not observing Christianity also sebok sebok celebrate.

  9. I have many good Malay neighbours who often moved me with their kindness to buy supper often to treat those foreign guards who had to work overnight at the pondok.

    2. Of course Anay got lah. Anay just gave them a huge box of food 2 nights ago. I should not blow trumpet here lah. Shy only.

      Delete
    3. Sudah blow already now!

      LOL

  10. Always admire Muslims who can fast for the whole month. Ask me to fast overnight to go for blood test the next day,already half dead. Quickly would go to eat right after the test.

    1. its because of our belief. Strong belief makes it easier. :-)

    2. Wakkakakakaka This Suituapui is damn honest!!!! I like!

    3. Better honest than a hypocrite right? :-)

  11. Good to share about this! SO all this buka puasa buffet dinners by hotels are not right?

    ReplyDelete
  12. SO you can choose not to fast too? But why when you don't fast, some Muslims will look at you like one kind?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not about people looking at you one kind. If you choose not to do it, you choose to sin.

      Delete
    2. Anyway, you really need to understand more, if you are interested. Please delve into what is written a bit deeper.

      You can choose not to do an ibadah, But the syariah law will not allow you to openly mock the religion. And if one is a believer, then one shouldn't.

      WHY WOULD A MUSLIM CHOOSE NOT TO FAST AND DO IT OPENLY ANYWAY? They have no shame at all?

      Delete
  13. This was very interesting. I sometimes got the impression (in Egypt) that this month of fasting was not about fasting at all. Many Egyptian colleagues actually GAINED weight during Ramadan.

    1. Same here.

      The way we eat at iftar sometimes is actually more than we used to eat for a whole day in other month! @.@
