Ramadan Karem !! Thu here It doesn't feel like Ramadan at all !! Yes this is the first time I will be fasting away from my family ! last year during my visit to Jordan I spent Ramadan there !! I have to say people in the Muslim countries should be great-full to be surrounded by each other especially during these days !!
My day didn't start well !! It started very early in the morning ! I had to wake up at 4:30 AM to have Suhur because Fajr prayer is at 5:13 AM and I have to be at work at 6 AM so this way I can have breakfast and coffee like every day !! I hit the road ! it was really dark !! more than every day !! I thought there is something wrong with the street !! but I kept driving any way !! a minute later ! I saw a police car with a very strong light following me !! to be honest I freaked out ! I didn't know what to do !! I can't pull over cuz it's one way street !! I was driving really slowly ! so I thought I should drive faster to find a spot to park :D but maybe he would think i'm running !! Finally I pulled over and waited in the car !!! So I am obsessed with American movies and series !! and the driver SHOULD ALWAYS STAY IN THE CAR !!! but Why did I step out ???? I waited in the car for a while but he didn't come so yes I stepped out !! I know crazy !! He said Mam please get back to your vehicle !! looooool OMG wallahee just like the movies !! yes this is EXACTLY how I planned my day!! he approached my car and asked for my driving licence ! and he said do u know why I stopped u !!?? (sure I don't know cuz I am sure I wasn't fasting) No sir I don't !! he said did u notice that the streets r darker than the usual ? I said yes and then immediately turned the lights on !!!! Oh !! MMMM OK !!! that was really stupid !! I told him I am heading to work but he was gentle man, he said I just want u to be careful and don't forget to turn the lights on next time !! I thanked him for reminding me and headed to work !!
Way to start your morning !!
Every body is eating ! I can't complain ! this is expected :S but still not used to it !! full hours ! and Fotor at 8:40 PM
I went home and slept ! OH the air is different and the smell is also different in Jordan !! Why !! we have a big family here and we gathered for Iftar and also Had Katayef !
but it's just not the same !!
May Allah give us the strength to do our best in this holy month and may all our prayers be accepted and also our fasting !!
Ramadan Kareem !!
