Both best friends were happy to see each other and exchanged some warm Ramadan greetings!  🌙

anonymous asked:

What to do for fun on Ramadan? I would like to stay away from sins, like haram music and TV shows. But most good TV shows have haram themes and scenes. I like to go outside alot during the summer but I get worried I will get dehydrated and evidently grouchier. What do you suggest?

🌟FUN DURING RAMADAN🌟

- Attend halaqahs with a group of friends

- Make taraweeh goals with friends, meeting them at the masjid for salah

- Watch YouTube series of lectures with friends

- Create a Quran reading/recitation group with your friends & family to enjoy reading Quran together

- Bake or cook with loved ones for iftar

- Have people over for iftar & attend iftar gatherings

- Practice new hijab styles using YouTube or instagram tutorials

- Play games with little siblings/cousins (maybe try to relate them back to Islam)

- Volunteer with friends at an animal shelter, or the masjid, meal drive, etc.

- Do a craft that you enjoy & make dhikr or listen to Quran while doing so

- Paint or draw something you can hang in your room as a reminder of Allah (or gift it for Eid/put it in the masjid)

- Plant flowers or a garden

- Go on a walk an hour or two before iftar (so if you’re thirsty you won’t have to wait long to drink)

- Go to a museum or zoo with friends or family

- Spend time with elders & listen to their stories

- Volunteer at retirement homes or assisted living facilities, possibly reading to the residents or playing board games/cards with them

- Spend time with little kids (if you enjoy kiddos)

- Go to the park or lake and read Quran there

- Decorate your home with Ramadan decor

- Make a Ramadan calendar to count down until Eid and chart your progress

- Push yourself in ibaadah & make it fun ☺️

THIS has got to be the worst representation of a Muslim in Ramadan I’ve ever seen??? No mentions of taraweeh the prayer that happens late In the evening?? No RAMADAN decorations in the house??? No bakhoor?? No mentions of iftar at the masjid??? No mention of preparation for eid??? Eid outfits?? Not even a glance of them opening their fast?? No Quran reading?? No spirituality?? Like ?? Hello?? I’m sorry guys but the way they’ve depicted it on skam so far is actually 0.00001% of what it is. They’ve only mentioned hunger and being tired from fasting on the show. Which aka you’re not supposed to do. But whatevs I should just be happy with some make out scenes and carrots. :/ :/ :/

“Muslims throughout the world are currently observing the holy month of Ramadan. Observant Muslims participate in fasting (sawm), one of the five pillars of their faith, this entire Lunar month.  Eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity is prohibited from dawn until sunset. Along side restraining from bad intentions,desires, and superficial needs. The fast is broken at sunset with the evening meal called Iftar. Local customs define varying traditions, including differing types of food used to break the daily fast. Children, women in pregnancy/menses, sick/poor health individuals, and those traveling do not have to fast. During this time, Muslims are also encourage to read the entire Quran, to give freely to those in need, give charity,seek forgiveness and strengthen their ties to God through prayer. The fasting is meant to teach a person patience, humility, sacrifice, and empathy for the poor. After the month long fast, Eid al-Fitr is celebrated to mark the end of Ramadan.”
