The Ramadan Diary 2023: Day 4

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

Another quick one. Boy, am I tired from just a few days of fasting.

Great to see a lot of friends having iftars with their families over the weekend! It is always nice to do so.

Today, I was made to realise just how much better other Muslims are than I am and trust me, they can be waaaay younger than me yet be more matured than I am in terms of spirituality.

This just brings me back to the importance of being grateful. Alhamdulillah! I am finally working in a place where people are actually secretly God-conscious! It is just so heartwarming.

Today’s highlight that led me to the above conclusion is an encounter I had with my colleague at the fitting room. Bro pretty much was just taking a respite from work. He asked me to excuse him because he was trying to charge himself but then cheered himself up at the prospect of ending work earlier. I asked him if he had taken his one-hour break and he replied, “Yeah, because I wanted to pray Zuhur”.

At that point, it was getting close to 4pm and I have yet to perform my Zuhur prayer. So yeaaaaaah, that sense of guilt just kicked right in!

Right after my fitting room duty, I immediately performed my Zuhur prayer and since it was Asar right after I finished, I performed my Asar prayer as well.

Lesson learned: Just pray immediately when the time comes. There is more blessing in it and I will not be so embarrassed when someone else has done it but I have not.

And Allah is Al-Quddus, The Most Pure, The All-Perfect. – MM
