Blessed Ramadan ...



Ramadan Kareem , may this month be full of peace and blesses, Ramadan is very special month, we don’t eat nor drink anything since dawn (at about 4 am) till sunrise (at 7 pm) , to feel the poor people’s feeling who can’t offered money to buy food, and to feel the blesses we have, it’s the forgiveness and bounteous month...
pregnant women, or who breast-feed, the sick, the children, the old people, people who are traveling don’t have to fast, and their are many other excuses not to fast… but people who has a good health have to fast …
In Ramadan all the family members gather at 7 pm to have al Futur, everyone cooperate and prepare the banquet, Muslims in this month must show good manners, helping people, reading quran, praying more than any month else…
Ramadan won’t be like the past for many families who lost family members in war, everyday they’ll miss them more , specially when they have al Futur without them, it is so hard, and I pray they’ll get through that..
My plans for this Ramadan to read the whole Quran, and pray all prayers at their exact time (4 am, 12 noon, 4 pm, 7 pm, 8 pm), helping more people and allocating money for the poor people like what I do every Ramadan and whenever I get the chance to do so, and study well..
the prayers are heard in Ramadan , All Iraqis are praying to have a peaceful life without violence and killing, may god hear our prayers and respond it …
*************************
two weeks ago I had party in my house, I invited 10 best friends of mine, 6 of them came which is great .
My friends can’t come to my neighborhood it is too dangerous and too scary, when you enter it you feel like you are in the ghosts neighborhood or death neighborhood beside the roads are closed ..
The party started at 4 pm and ended at 6:30 pm , we had a good time, danced, laughed and talked a lot .. we needed to have a good time and celebrate before Ramadan and school start ..
At night I was exhausted, everything was perfect, and the party was awesome, I went to bed at 11 pm, I spelt for 3 house and then woke up, I was sweating and it was hard to take a breath, I was so tired but I couldn’t sleep because of the VERY hot weather, at last I started to cry, I couldn’t sleep well for many nights, and I need to concentrate in my classes, at 8 am I dragged my self and attended my physics class, with sleepy eyes and yawing ! I couldn’t understand a word , as soon as I reached home I slept for 5 hours !! the electricity is horrible as usual .. ….
I hope that this month their won’t be any explosion no one will get killed or kidnapped and we’ll only hear good news, I pray for that ….
Sunshine…

Ramadan Kareem. I hope you have a very special Ramadan. Sounds like you had a very good time at your party and hope you can have many more. I hate to hear that your neighborhood is so dangerous. I really hated to hear that your health is not good. Is it caused by the heat? Take care Sunny.

Ramadan Mubarak Sunny! Keep the faith and your hope alive. I know when you are tired it is hard to be hopeful. But already if you look around Iraq things are SO MUCH BETTER than even one year ago. A soccer match in Baghdad had 50,000 spectators for the first time in 8 years! There are new buildings going up, new hotels across Iraq, new roads, new stores. Keep studying and you will be able to take advantage in just a few years of your education!

I hope that you enjoy the rest of Ramadan :)

It lifts my heart to see that you and your friends were able to have a good time at the party. It is so important to still be able to have fun when surrounded by so much conflict.

A day will come when you can say loud and proud that your neighbourhood, your people and your country are safe again.

Good wishes
