These last two days after Ramadan everytime in the daytime when I feel hungry or thirsty I stop myself from eating, because in the back of my head I still have Ramadan on my mind and it feels unnatural to eat during the day after not eating in the day for so long. Alhamdulillah we have the ability to go outside and just eat something anywhere we want and go to our fridges and eat something at any given time of the day, whether it be at 4am or at 2pm. Imagine all those kids in Gaza, Syria, Africa and all of the other oppressed and third world countries, where the children don’t get to eat for so long in their life that they must find it unnatural when they get given food. The happiness they must feel is not even close to the happiness we feel when we can eat during the day, after Ramadan passes. For them the struggle is everyday and they have no choice about it.
So please take some time out today to just say Alhamdulillah for what Allah has given, make sincere du’a for the less fortunate that their thirst and hunger may be quenched and if you can then donate to a charity that you know can make a difference inshaAllah.
