The Ramadan Diary 2023: Day 3

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Today is not the best day of the month so far. My husband and I could not get up for pre-dawn meal. I only managed to pray Fajr and read the Quran.

Then I fell asleep at around 8am and only woke up after 2pm! Sheesh!

I think my body has been struggling to cope with dealing the sudden fast while having to work. I guess that’s why it’s best to fast during Sha’baan. At least the body won’t be shocked during Ramadan.

Anyway, we went out to Century Square to pick up my sister’s order of satays and a birthday cake for the March babies! We decided to celebrate my in-laws’ birthdays — Jannah and Khalis, as well as Jannah’s domestic helper, Rina, along with the latest addition to the family, baby Nurra!

At sunset, we all sat down to enjoy our first big family iftar together. Then we prayed Isya’ and Terawih together. Finally, we had cake.

Then we said goodbye and sent my dad to work at the airport before we headed home.

There were a lot of firsts this week. First days at the workplace as a full-timer. First time fasting at the workplace. First time breaking fast with the family this month. First time praying with the family this month. And so on.

Yeah, I am kinda rushing this post because I feel pretty tired and I have got an early day at work tomorrow.

Will write again tomorrow!

And Allah is Al-Malik, The King. – MM
