    He knows my sweet tooth– this is Shaitan coated in creamy chocolate frosting.
    I literally burst out laughing at this. I feel you, girl! This was such an entertaining post to read, your personality really shines haha.

    To prepare for Ramadan, I sometimes try to get myself used to fasting again by fasting every Monday and Thursday during the weeks leading up to Ramadan (I really hope I get into doing this year round insha’Allah!) It’s sunnah so it’s a good way to start getting back into the feel of things… and since while you’re fasting you pretty much have to control everything about your behavior (no cursing, temper tantrums, etc.) and do as many good deeds as possible, it gets you into the habit of being conscious about your actions. Here’s the hadith on this —

    Abu Hurairah reported that the most the Prophet (SAW) would fast would be Monday and Thursday. He was asked about that and he said: “The actions are presented on every Monday and Thursday. Allah forgives every Muslim or every believer, except for those who are boycotting each other. He says [about them]: ‘Leave them.’ “

    “I think your spiritual experimentation is beautiful.” I love it! It’s fabulous to hear from our sisters state side.
    Ok advice, here goes, drink plenty of water at suhoor and Iftar, discuss lots about life the universe and everything and believe me the answer isn’t 42! And finally let other Muslims make a fuss of you and treat you like a superstar coz thats what you are. Mash’Allah

    Salaam sister,
    A few tips for the month of ramadhan are:
    By praying atleast 1 para (chapter) every day so in 30 days insh’allah you would’ve prayed the whole Quran.
    Another tip is that try to pray as many nafil (optional) prayer as you can insh’allah, because a nafil prayer is very rewarding at the month of ramadhan.
    Subhan’allah there are sooo many virtues for praying in ramadhan so always try to keep your Tongue moist with the names of Allah and durood sharifs.
