Day 4 of Ramadan is here….I have the sweetest daughter ever. She really loves to cook. She has been getting up for the last 4 days and cooking for everyone. Which is awesome for me, since I have been sick. It’s one less thing I have to think about in the morning. Hopefully tomorrow I will share a few recipe’s we have been using for our fast.
I have really enjoyed our early morning family get togethers. This time gives us the opportunity to share our thoughts on fasting, life, things we have read in the Quran. The family time is priceless and so memorable. As we spoke about our fasts today I realized that maybe I need to do some teaching at home about Ramadan to my children. We all need a refresher course once in a while and today right before breaking our fast we will discuss some facts about Ramadan. As I was thinking of what to discuss made a short list of facts I wanted to share with you as well.
