Ramadhan Farewell: The Beginning of the New Journey

Alhamdulillah. Praise be to Allah SWT for giving me a chance and opportunity to successfully complete my fasting ibaadah throughout the whole month of Ramadhan. It is a mixed emotion actually - happy for the upcoming Eid but sad as the holy month of Ramadhan is departing. Frankly speaking, this is my first time ever feeling so sad as the end of Ramadhan approaches.

Graduating from the University of Tarbiyyah (Ramadhan) this year had given me realizations upon so many new things. It all started when I watched videos about minimalism on Youtube which taught me how to appreciate all the things that I have in my life and being thankful for each and every second to Allah SWT. It did make me realised that all this while I was trapped in the chains of consumerism and materialism, which will never ever be satisfying. Alhamdulillah, since then, I can actually trace my transactions made in shops and mall. No more unnecessary shopping or transactions after this, InsyaAllah.

That I would say just one of the many things that really impacted me during this year's Ramadhan. Though I started my ibaadah gear a bit late still, He granted the best memories especially during the last 10 days of Ramadhan. I was not able to complete my Quran recitation, but still, my heart now seems to grow fonder towards this Kalamullah. This year I also was able to experience the sweetness of staying at the mosques for i'tikaf, that no words can describe it.

These are the reasons why it felt so sad to let Ramadhan go this year. I pray to Allah SWT that I would be able to experience even better Ramadhan next year. Ramadhan ends here. But the new journey is started. Fi Hifzillah.ͰM
