Guest contributor, Fatima Moolla of Timeless Teenz shares some of her pre-Ramadan emotions.

I have a burning desire to meet Ramadan. My soul is spiritually starved all year round and aches to be nourished by Ramadan. I want to physically feel some ounce of sympathy for the less fortunate and become more grateful for all the delicacies that we are blessed with, rather than our usual lip service to them.

The Quran tells us: "If you are thankful, I will surely grant you more."

And by being grateful we will gain more and more Barakah and Ni'mats from Allah as we are promised.

Once (during Ramadhaan) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) performed the Taraweeh Salaah in the Masjidun Nabawi. The Sahabah (rad) followed him in the Salaah. When Rasulullah (saw) again performed the Salaah the following night, an even larger congregation followed him. It was then, either on the third or fourth night, that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) did not come to the Masjid for the Taraweeh Salaah. Explaining his reason the following morning, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said to the Sahabah: “I noticed your fervour and did not come to the Masjid to perform the Salaah fearing that this Taraweeh Salaah would become compulsory for you.” read more:

Our six-year-old daughter, Terra, has a need to ask questions … lots of questions. Finally, one day, my wife had had it. “Have you ever heard that curiosity killed the cat?” my wife asked.

“No,” replied Terra.

“Well, there was a cat, and he was very inquisitive. And one day, he looked into a big hole, fell in, and died!” Terra was intrigued. “What was in the hole?” she asked.
