I finally understand why I fast

Fasting without my family is not easy. Fasting as a traveller has its problems. But fasting beside people who can barely afford food, and eat just to survive is beyond humbling – I finally understand why I fast.

All I think of is how many people fast for more than Ramadan, or those who do not get to break their fasts when it is sunset; how will my zakat this year of helping feed a person for iftar do any good to my ummah? Oh this world.

I know I am truly blessed in this life. Alhamdulilah.

Ramadan Kareem
