i had planned to spend the majority of the night at the mosque and all day i was extremely excited, and entering the mosque that night my heart was beating so fast and it hit me that i had missed coming to the mosque for the amazing night prayers.
walalhi i felt so emotional, and seeing friends and fellow sisters who i am used to seeing on a weekly basis at the Tuesday circle really brought tears to my eyes, for some reason i saw every one in a different light and i felt touched by every one presence,
i know this must sound really soppy and maybe even exaggerated but i swear that's how i felt, and if i could choose to be any where at that particular moment i don't think i would have changed my place and would have chosen to be praying at the mosque with my groupies :)
i guess i felt emotional at the thought of Ramadan ending which sadly at the moment is packing its bags and it feels like already a vast emptiness is descending, i always feel a sense of sadness when the last day of the fast ends and maghreb approaches, knowing that there will be no tarawih prayers, i swear the atmosphere changes.
Ramadan is training for the soul, it is a rejuvenating and re-energising of our eman, a polite reminder as to how we have been living our lives and what needs to be changed, and a break away from the habit that is life, but defiantly Ramadan is supposed to be continued through out the year.
i pray from the bottom of my hear that the candle of iman that was lit during Ramadan continues until the next Ramadan, for who knows whether we will live to see another blessed Ramadan.
eid mubarak dearest bloggers, Allah swt is congratulating us through his gift of eid for the hard efforts we hopefully put into Ramadan, may eid be a joyous occasion that will fill your hearts with happiness and a zest to continue the Ramadan spirit.3aseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeda oh how i love you...
