And you know thissssss, MAN!! I can't wait. It's time......For me, Ramadan is like New Years......The discipline and compassion I gain from fasting echos through to the next Ramadan.....Outta focus Ramadans......bring outta focus months until the next one...ya dig?

I'm finna jump into the Seerah and gang up on lectures by Hamza Yusef and Zaid Shakir.....They be rippin'... Purification of the Heart- PLEASE?!! Off da hook wisdom.

They just had a major Zaytuna Conference here in the Bay. I heard it was off da hook. Peep www.zaytuna.org for more info on Zaytuna and how they put it down. May Allah bless the global Ummah this Ramadan...we need the baraka...TAKBIR!! ALLAH U AKBAR!!

...another level of discipline this year. Since I've been doing the one meal a day thing (a la "How to Eat to Live"), I pretty much have the rudiments down pat, so every year I try to add another requirement to make it a real trial.

One year it was no red meat, which I stuck to. Then another year, it was no land meats (only fish and vegetables) which I hung with the following year, only to fall back :-/ The next year, it was no meat, which I hung with for about a month after :-/ --the power of the bird LOL.

Some years it's been stuff like, keep the room clean and the papers organized and filed away... or establish regular sleeping patterns... or no TV... or no radio... or limited spending on non-essentials.

Not sure what it's going to be this year. Anybody else add resolutions to your Ramadan experience? Anything ranging from reading the Qur'an in its entirety, attending all Salaat-ul-Tarawih, weight loss, reconnecting with long lost friends/family, saving money, giving a little more in charity, etc.?

6747, NOI been observing both since the mid-80s
Posted by NuPwrSoul, Thu Oct-24-02 10:57 PM
The NOI has been observing both Ramadans--the Arabic month & the December one--since the mid-80s. Since '98 when the two coincided, the transition was made to observe the Arabic month and now the December one is optional.

December was chosen by the Hon. Elijah Muhammad because it was the month with the shortest days of the year, to introduce the fast with ease, and because of the Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years season. According to Min. Farrakhan, by now the members of the NOI should have gotten that under control, and the December "Ramadan" should no longer be necessary.

Posted by Rexdale, Fri Oct-25-02 05:18 AM
Ramadan is a great time, the fasting of food part is easy for me, but the fasting of other things (temptation), is the harder part, which i've been working on for the last few ramadan's. Glad to see there are enough Muslims on the boards doing there thing! And for all those first timers, i'm gonna add ya'll in my prayers that you go through the month with ease!

Allah! There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).
