For a long time I did not update my blog. but it is okay. now I want to share with all of you about fasting. We are in the month or Ramadhan. For muslims, we have to fast everyday as we can. Muslims are prohibited from eating, drinking, smoking, and engaging in sexual intercourse from dawn(fajr) to sunset (maghrib). Fasting is essentially an attempt to seek nearness to Allah and increase one's piety. Fasting is also viewed as a means of controlling one's desires (of hunger, thirst, sexuality, anger) and focusing more on devoting oneself to God. There are several advantages of fasting. Fasting is very good for our health. besides that, Muslims can feel and experience that which needy and hungry humans feel while we are not eating for the whole day until dawn. This Ramadhan also give us chance to share meal and being kind to our neighbours. It is very exciting to change meals and breakfast together. It gaves us more reward than breakfast alone. Nevertheless, not many people who still doing that untill now. People become more and more busy with works, and anything else untill there are many people that breakfast in car, which is breakfasting unproperly. So, why don't we just change our mind and enjoy this month with the maximum "ibadat" as we can since we still have the time!!
