Hope you have had a good start to Ramadan. Alhamdulillah, ours has been good so far. The first day was exceptionally good with me thinking where did those fifteen hours go! But then on the second day, I kept counting remaining hours like a child. I think I felt energized during the first day because of the amount of water I had during Suhoor. Keeping ourselves hydrated makes a huge difference when fasting for long hours.
One might think, especially seeing the lofty Iftar buffets in this part of the world, that Ramadan is only about keeping ourselves away from food, drink and physical desires. Yes, during Ramadan, we Muslims abstain from food and basic physical appetites from dawn to dusk. However, Ramadan is much more than that.
