    joking aside, the first thing that comes to mind is definitely fasting

    Re: When you hear...

    Assalaamu Alaaykum

    The first thing that comes to mind is happiness that the month is here or on its way..if non then its time to prepare..

    The feeling in the whole month is just a blessing!

    Re: When you hear...

    ^Indeed!

    It is just the blessings from Allaah swt, even when there is no Ramadhaan, but the feeling when Ramadhaan leaves is also something to reflect upon as you never know when is your last, it is ofcourse a sad feeling, the feeling i recieve in particular though it may seem weird to some is like a loved one is leaving, subhaan'Allaah.


    may Allaah swt grant every single one of us another Ramadhaan and increase us in emaan and strengh to remain patient and steadfast Aameen.

    Anyone want to know why ?

    It's because Indonesians call Ramadan as Bulan Puasa (Month of Fasting), not Bulan Taraweeh (Month of Taraweeh)

    A picture of my masjid and everyone praying pops in my head when I hear Ramadhan. How badly I miss Ramadhan May Allah grant us from those who shall live to see the next Ramadhan inshAllah, Ameen!

    Re: When you hear...

    Since I am not Muslim (yet), the first thing that comes to my mind is "Islam". Then I think about how hard it would be to not eat all day for a month.

    But then, I've grown fat and lazy over the years, so a little belt tightening may not be a bad thing...

    Re: When you hear...

    The first thing that comes to mind is tranquility, because I feel very tranquil during the month, alhamdulillah.

    Then comes fasting and taraweeh, alhamdulillah.

    So glorify the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him).

    It brings a smile on my face that my favorite month is about to begun I dont know if others feel the same but i always feel the weather is entirely different in Ramadhan and on Eid day.I call it "The fifth season".I feel very protective and feel like an unseen bliss and light in the whole envoirement.I love it Once my teacher told me that its actually because of the angels sent down on Earth.I wish Ramadhan will be of 6 months but its only for 1 month

    You will love it!

    It is so empowering, unifying, and calming...cleansing for the body and the soul.

    And, you never know what you can do until you try it. You will be fine and will feel as though you are floating through the air for entire time.
