Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan yang dinanti bakal menjengah (di waktu ini di sini masih belum masuk 1 Ramadhan, insyaAllah dalam beberapa jam lagi).

For us, both Dzul & I, this will be the longest hours of fasting in Ramadhan we’ve ever experienced (~3am till 9pm for the first few days of Ramadhan). However, insyaAllah the long hours will not deter us from fulfilling our other obligations, as parents, students, and His servants.

Well, a few tips (I know these are well known tips, but guess a little reminder won’t hurt) how to get through the long hours without food & drink:

  1. Drink a lot of water in between iftar & sahur. If possible, drink up to 8 glasses of water. I repeat, IF POSSIBLE. Do not drink the whole 8 glasses at once or within short time, but over the 3-4 hours (tolak time tidur before sahur;) ).
  2. Eat lightly during iftar. Besides to avoid being lazy and sleepy for maghrib, isya & terawih prayers, it could facilitate you getting up for qiam al-layl & sahur.. and also leaves room for food to be taken during sahur, which is essential to provide energy throughout the day.
  3. Jangan tidur banyak, walaupun tidur di bulan Ramadhan itu ibadah. Tidur yang banyak melemahkan badan & iman, dan mematikan hati.
  4. No rigorous body workout, unless you’re capable of. (Fair enough!)

Well, that’s just a few tips from me. Mari sama-sama kita berdoa agar Ramadhan ini membawa sepenuh keberkatan buat diri & keluarga kita khususnya, dan kepada seluruh umat Islam hendaknya. Sedikit peringatan daripada Imam Hassan Al Bana,

Taabud (pengabdian) adalah menjadi asas kepada semua bentuk ibadat. Dengan lain perkataan kaedah umum dalam ibadat ialah hanya kerana taat kepada Allah, semata-mata kerana pengabdian diri kepada Allah, bukan kerana rahsia, hikmat atau tujuan yang terkandung dalam ibadat tersebut sekalipun kita mengimani bahawa semua ibadat mengandungi hikmat dan rahsia.

-Asas Kelima, Syarah Usul 20

i.e. Biarpun berpuasa itu banyak kelebihannya, jangan diniatkan puasa kerana kelebihan itu e.g. save duit, diet etc, tapi diniatkan hanya lillahi taala..
