    How is Everyone?

    Report bad ads?

    So how is everyone?

    It's been a while... how's fasting keeping you guys? I hope you are all praying the full 20 units of Taraweeh prayer and not just rushing off after 8. Hehe, a friend of mines does 80kg on the bench down at the gym, but when it comes to standing in qiyaam, he's weak as anything. What use 'eh.

    Insha Allah everyone's having a good Ramadhaan so far, and making use of their every second of it. Surely, the one who does not seek the mercy of Allah during this month is doomed. There's a Hadith regarding this I'm sure.

    Has anyone had fish and chips for Iftar yet?

    Peace out!

    Re: How is Everyone?



    Alhamdulilah I'm getting by very well. At times I really do feel the pangs of hunger, but isn't that the point?

    I actually had fried fish for dinner last night. My mom makes the best. And yes, Alhamdulilah, I've prayed 20 rakaahs in congregation every night since Ramadan began, and Inshallah I shall pray it until Ramadan ends

    I feel very active when im fasting. I thought I'd be tired and hungry but Alhamdulilaah Allah has made it easy for me so far. Ramadan is not just fasting though...its about disciplining your Nafs.

    It can be 8, 12 or 20 rak'aahs. All the masjids around my place do 20.

    Re: How is Everyone?


    Allhamdullilah bro, I’ve been waiting for this month to come, and now I’m doing my best to take full advantage of it. Thank you for asking.
    What u said about your friend is so true….we have old women at our Masjid praying full 20 rakat standing while the younger sisters are busy messing around with their cell phones after 8 rakat.
    May Allah forgive us and increase our Iman. Ameen.

    Re: How is Everyone?



    I'm guessing those who pray 8 do so because they are really old and can't stand up for long. Those who pray 12 are like reaching old age. Those who read 20... well what can I say.

    Drink lots of water at Suhur remember.

    Re: How is Everyone?


    The mosque I go, they pray 8 rakats for the actual tarawee plus 3 nafl (so, 11 in total). But unlike one particular masjid, the imam(s) don't speed read. so you can actually hear the words of the Quran. :brother:

    Re: How is Everyone?



    loq...thats why some people who want to perform only 8 rakaah come to our masjid, cuz we do 20, and its shorter. And they get to leave after 8.

    But it is a difference of opinion. 8 rakaah is accepted according to some.. So they don't have to be elderly to do 8. :sister:

    Anyways, alhamdulilah Ramadan is goin pretty good.

    Re: How is Everyone?

    As salaamu alaykum

    20 rakats straight up.

    And Alhumdulillah Ramadan is going great. I love the feeling of Ramadan, everyone so calm and peaceful be it due to hunger or fear of Allah (staying away from sins, being polite, understanding, merciful and patient)...whatever it may be, but I sure love the feeling!

    May Allah help us to continue the good deeds and good character we practice during Ramadan throughout the whole year, Aameen.
