It’s officially the first Friday, the best Friday and the first weekend of Ramadan. Due to my ‘break in transmission’ yesterday, I was able to observe tahjuud for the first time since I started fasting.
Since we’re celebrating a lot of firsts, I had swallow for sahuur today with my favorite soup that is Okro. Actually Ramadan with my parents means no excuses and so I wasted no time in praying Fajr.
Alhamdulilah, the charity (Sadaqah) planned in honor of my sister went well, quite tedious carrying food items but was heaped with a lot of prayers and that’s what matters. I can only hope they get to her wherever she is.
I couldn’ttake any pictures by the way, I just felt it was clichè plus I needed to maximize my time in order to get ready for Jum’ah.
After jum’ah I became totally ‘bedridden’, I was weak and tired and my stomach was churning in ways I couldn’t even imagine. What’s worse was that my mom needed me to assist her in making Iftar and I just laid on a couch helpless.
I think I spent most of my day watching the time and praying it was 7PM already and that led me to set an alarm for 6:59 because I needed my water and fruits on standby.
I decided to watch a tafsir on YouTube around 5:30 PM and couldn’t even concentrate for 5 mins. The struggleeee.
The annoying part about having ulcer is how hungry you’ll feel yet full. I couldn’t eat savage like I’d wanted but I settled for watermelon, Cormeal And Beans cake (Also referred to as Ogi and Akara) well at least that did the trick for the next few hours giving me the strength I needed to observe Salah and pray Taraweeh.
That’s all for today guys, I’d probably be sleeping when you’re reading this so catch y’all 9PM tomorrow.
