Ramadaniyat 06: Watch yo’ mouth!, Sleeping in, Water, Da’wah

Narrated Abu Hurayra (May Allah Be Pleased with Him):

The Prophet (May Allah Prayers and Salutations be upon him) said:

“Whoever does not leave false speech and acting upon it, then Allah has nothing to do with his leaving of his food and drink.”

[Bukhari narrated it.]

Common Mistakes Made During Ramadan

Common Mistake #5: Sleeping all day

Some people spend their entire day (or a major part of it) ’sleeping away their fast’. Is this what is really required of us during this noble month? These people are also missing the purpose of fasting and are slaves to their desires of comfort and ease. They cannot ‘bear’ to be awake and face a little hunger or exert a little self-control. For a fasting person to spend most of the day asleep is nothing but negligence on his part.

2. Drink plenty of water when you break your fast

It is very easy to become dehydrated and not drink enough water during Ramadan. We spend most of our alert hours not drinking anything. When the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wasalam) could not find dates to break fast with he would break fast with water. Water is an essential part of a healthy diet even when you are fasting.Dehydration is often misinterpreted as hunger. When we are dehydrated when we break fast, then we have the hunger of the fast on top of the mistaken hunger of being dehydrated. Break your fast then drink 2 large glasses of water before you eat your iftar meal. Eat slowly, consciously and with intent to eat for nourishment not to satisfy your hunger and cravings.
