How are you? What have you guys been up to? I just hate being away from home during Ramadan! ITS so hard to be in “Ramadan” mode, without family. The Suhoor, the family, the ambiance, the feeling of sweetness, iftar everyday with family, the talking about life and Islam, rushing to the bathroom before anyone else (BAE lol) to make wudu first after iftar, reminding and being advised to stay on track, struggling together, getting ready for Tarawee, wearing my favorite Abaya (made in Turkey!), praying with all the sisters at the Majjid, bumping into all the sisters while leaving the Majjid after Tarawee, stopping at the gas station to get snacks, eating more when coming home, staying up till Suhoor while reading Quran, striving to finish the Quran and making it to every single Tarawee, seeing how grumpy my brothers get at Suhoor, Suhoor with family, praying with family, and trying to fall asleep after Fajr (SO HARD). I know, its a run on sentence. That was my life before Chicago, Alhumdulilah!
Yea so, an update to my life is that I am not planning to go to NY until December InSha Allah (If Allah wills). I just can’t… I used to be the first one out and about during even the week long breaks. Life. But, you already knew that!
Oh, and I am eating super unhealthy. I hate it. I miss my parents and my brothers so much. I miss being home so much that I am tempted to use a smiley. YA KUDAYA MADAD!!!!! Ramadan is almost over.
May Allah accept the wee bit of prayer, fasts, duas, and deeds we all have strived to do. Ameen. Please, if you are reading this, pray for me! [A LOT]. Jasak ALLAH Khair
