Five Minutes of Journal (10–05–2019)
This is the month of fasting for Muslims- a month in which you follow a set protocol of when to eat and when not to. But it is not just about eating- it is much more than restricting eating and drinking.
It is period of time where you are fasting from all ills of your personality. Whatever things which are considered as bad for a society are restricted. You cannot gamble, cannot engage in act of violence, you are not supposed to lured by the lust, you are not supposed to say bad words etc. Ramadan is much more than just fasting.
What it teaches me is to be disciplined- to be more focused on good things of my personality and but on back burner every negative thing which can be harmful for me as a person.
What a beautiful concept it is that you have to restrain from your guilty pleasures- things which you don’t like to do but do them because they offer you pleasure and sensory satisfaction.
Fast- not just for eating but fast from every negative thing which is hurting your progress as a better human being.
