In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
So turns out my period began yesterday so I couldn’t touch the Quran. Nonetheless, I read up the meaning of Al-Faatihah and watched a lecture on the tafsir or elaboration of that chapter in the Quran. It is a long video, close to an hour but I only watched like 10 minutes of it probably so I’m hoping to resume it tonight.
I have more or less memorised the meaning of the chapter because I was forced to during my religious classes so now it’s a matter of increasing my concentration during the five daily prayers by going through the meaning in my head while reciting it.
What I took away from watching the ten minutes of the video was that as we recite Al-Faatihah, especially the first part of it, we are actually conversing with Allah and He is responding to us. The problem is we often pay lip service to the verses because we most probably didn’t know that He is responding to us with every verse recited. I didn’t know to be honest. So now that I know, it definitely changes the way I view the five daily prayers from simply routine to actually facing my King and engaging with Him.
So that’s about keeping up with my daily Quran. I am happy to say that I washed the dishes last night but kan, I only had a cup and a teaspoon to wash. LOL. Because we Grabbed food last night. Le husband is still sick and was too drowsy to cook.
So tonight’s mission is to keep up my routine and I’ll see if I can manage to do another chore.
Boring, right, my life? But I know you are addicted to the way I write because I simply have a good flair for writing, even on the most mundane things. *flips pen*
Nyohoho! Did you catch that?! I flip pens instead of hair. Wakakaka!
