I'll start with some standard intro for Ramadhan :p..
Alhamdulillah, here we are still able to breath and enjoy the most anticipated month in Islamic calendar. The month which contains a night that's equivalent to a thousand months (approx. 80 years..wallaweh~) (HQ 97:03). The month where all the doors of heaven are open as wide and the doors of hell shut as tight (ref.). The month of, well, to summarize, the best month of all months :p.
This is my second unfortunate (hehe..no la :p) year of celebrating Ramadhan abroad. Fortunately enough, here in Auckland, especially in CBD area, it's not difficult to pay your responsibility as a Muslim :). It's even just a matter of whether or not you want to offer your tarawikh prayer in congregation (unlike in other places that I heard of, it's even hard to find another Muslim). There's a small (compared to the number of Muslims here..but hey, it's a good place :)) room provided by the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) acts as masjid :).
This is a very very d very very good opportunity to know other Muslims from other part of the world better. For example, We have our iftar in a big tray shared by bout 9 persons per tray, and consists of brothers (well, in brothers pov of course :p) from all range of backgrounds and origins :). What's the use of eating together without trying to know each other, right :).
This year's Ramadhan celebration falls at around the end of winter. So, we're (i'Allah) approximately observing our fast as long as those in Malaysia :).
That's all I can think of right now :).
Tho it might be a little late..
“Happy Ramadhan to every Muslim all around the world.” -bom bom..kebabom (firecrackers sfx :p)-
May we gain the maximum benefit possible from this once per year festive season :). May we're blessed enough to meet the Lailatul Qadr. The night = 1000 months :) :).
Oh, and may we forget not bout our brothers and sisters who already strive a bit harder than us to keep on living. Well, this is a good time (not to say the only time..) to help 'em out right :). YOSH!!
Cheers :D D
