I went to USA this summer for my internship, and we had amazing two weeks there. We first went to Bristol, RI. The smallest state I guess, but it was very nice. We had a good view of the sea from where we stayed. Then in the weekend, we went to Manhattan, NY. It was great to see Timesquare, the statue of liberty, the skyscrapers. Well, we saw everything in one day, so you can imagine it was a very quick tour ! But its better than nothing. In our last week, we went to Woburn, MA. We usually went to Boston from there after work, because there wasn't much around where we stayed. All in all, we learned a lot from the internship and we had a good time Alhamdulilah
I will submit a few photos every week
Ramadan Kareem to all Muslims !
It started today. We fast for nearly 14 hours here, but it isn't a lot. Time passes by quickly. I wrote this last month, but I am writing it again for those who didnt get a chance to read it:
Ramadan is a holy month to us muslims. In this month we abstain from eating or drinking from Dawn till Sunset. We dont just abstain from food or drinks, we also abstain from sinful acts, evil intentions, words or desires, or from everything that angers Allah.
Saying this, it does NOT mean that we can sin in another month ! but Ramadan is a GREAT chance for muslims to repent and to ask Allah for forgiveness. Ramadan is the best time to practice self-restraint, a time to purify the body and soul from impurities. In this month, muslims should focus on worshiping Allah and on praying and seeking forgiveness from Allah.
"Fasting helps one to experience how a hungry person feels and what it is like to have an empty stomach. It teaches one to share the sufferings of the less fortunate. Fasting leads one to appreciate the bounties of Allah, which are usually taken for granteduntil they are missed!"
"During Ramadan in the Muslim world, most restaurants are closed during the daylight hours. Families get up early for "suhoor", a meal eaten before the sun rises. After the sun sets, the fast is broken with a meal known as "iftar". Iftar usually begins with dates and sweet drinks that provide a quick energy boost."
