Fasting, Taraweeh seems bitter, but..

Fasting is Ramadan a bit difficult, after refraining the whole day from water and food, not very late  – comes the Taraweeh prayer, neither is that an easy task. However, a servant of Allah thinks that “I had been created for the worship of my Lord; I have no choice(!). Further, if I obey my Lord in this world, undergo these hardship with patience (sabr), there is promise from my Lord all the great rewards in this world and afterlife. In this world I should be able to live a life of peace and tranquility and in the afterlife I shall meet my Beloved Lord happily and live in Jannah for good InshaAllah.”

Sabr seems bitter but the fruit it bears is very sweet. May we NOT neglect the great opportunity of Holy Ramadan!
