Shehrullah Mubarak

Wikipedia tells me that the word Ramazan derives from an Arabic word meaning intense heat and scorched ground. I had not thought about the origin of the word till recently and I am a little surprised at its literal meaning. We pay so much attention to the fact that Ramazan is the holiest of the months in the calendar year that sometimes this simple meaning and its significance is lost.

The weather in all the Arab land is more or less dry and very hot throughout the year and I can see the difficulty of keeping rozas for thirty days in such hostile conditions. But may be that physical pain is a part of the larger purification process which all rozdars invariably go through during the month. Calm and serenity and a feeling of oneness pervades all of us for the whole month. I wish that could be the case for the rest of eleven months too.

Shehrullah Mubarak!

Notice the Mubarak? I am happy that Ramazan are beginning in a couple of days.

Trivia:
Did you know that the author of this blog was born on the night of Lailatul Kadr during Ramazan? :-)

It is very interesting topic you've written here..The truth I'm not tied to this, but I think is a good oppurtunity to learn more about it… And as well talk about a different topic to which I used to talk with others..

For those who have piles, it is advisable to keep away from all hot foods (chili, popular sauce). These kinds of food items are very aggravating to your recent piles. It is additionally advised to prevent caffeine, beer, and all kinds of carbonated liquids. Until you feel better, the blander food products you can try to eat, the more effective off you will be.

Abandon a little bit of wiggle area for negotiations on terms when you are setting up your selling price for your home. Buyers tend not to like to use a vendor who is not willing to budge, whether or not the house is listed effectively throughout the marketplace pricing. You want to appear like you are likely to give slightly. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Biuyu656gy[/url]
