The Islamic Calendar is on a lunar cycle and has twelve months. This month is Ramadan, it is the most holiest of months for Muslims. The entire month is spent fasting from the break of dawn to sunset. There is a concentrated focus on spiritual devotion to Allah (swt), without the distraction of food you can spend more time in prayer, reading Quran, and other acts of worship.
During the summer months as it is right now the days are longer and it becomes a bit more challenging. May Allah (swt) make it easier for those fasting during this month. With the suggestion of my husband to help me find a focus for the month, I finally started this blog. I’ve been talking about it for a while but, just hadn’t gotten to it. I often have people ask me questions, and I know there are several others that do not ask but, our curious about my story. So I thought the perfect time to do this would to share my story of becoming Muslim during the month Ramadan in hope that I can help others and give a better image of Islam than what is in the media, inshallah (God Willing).
I am not perfect and I will continue my education in Islam as I do not know everything. May Allah (swt) forgive me for my faults.
