I cant workout anymore, text girls, or makeout with my girlfriend cause of ramadan no offense man but its been cock blocking. Im dead serious.
Salam and super sorry for not responding earlier. Ramadan is huge blessing from Allah and indeed we do starve our bodies. The way I like to think about fasting is that we starve our bodies in order to feed our souls. When we fast, the Prophet Muhammad let us know that “every (good) deed of the son of Adam would be multiplied, a good deed receiving a tenfold to seven hundredfold reward. Allah, the Exalted and Majestic, has said: With the exception of fasting, for it is done for Me and I will give a reward for it, for one abandons his passion and food for My sake. There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts, joy when he breaks it, and joy when he meets his Lord, and the breath (of an observer of fast) is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.that Allah, the Majestic and the Exalted, said: Every act of the son of Adam is for him except fasting. It is done for My sake, and I will give a reward for it. By Allah in Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad, the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.” (Saheeh Muslim)
Fasting is often hard and the hadith says Allah appreciates that we leave our passion and food for his sake. One thing I notice about Ramadan almost every year is that I have a lot more free time seeing that I’m not using any time to eat. In your case, it’s also time away from your girlfriend and this is a good time to re-evaluate our lives and figure out what we’re doing with them and where we want to be in the future. I wish you a great Ramadan full of blessing and good lesson. Allah is the Most Generous bruv give up a month of gymming for His sake and inshaAllah you can get some sick gains after. WaSalam
My heart feels like garbage.
With maddening hunger
I’d write to the point of suffocation
I’d write myself into nervous breakdowns
Manuscripts spiralling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing
And I’d write about you
a lot more
