Title: Ramadan 2019 (InshAllah)
Post by: Heba E. Husseyn on June 16, 2018, 07:40:34 pm

Tentative date for Ramadan 2019 would be May 6th, Allah willing.   

Mubarak to all sisters and brothers who observed Ramadan 2018 with sincerity and success.  May The Almighty accept your fasting, your Quran readings, your prayers and your supplications.  Ameen.  Please keep up the great work with improvements in your conduct.

It's entirely up to Allah Almighty to grant the privilege to whomsoever He wishes to experience the next Ramadan.  Earthly life is much too uncertain.  Therefore it would be wise to take every Ramadan we experience as our last. 

Eid-al-Fitr Mubarak to those who observe it.  Eid is simply a social event.  Not a Quranic injunction.  In accordance with the Truth (Noble Quran alone), only Ramadan is of utmost importance.

This is so very true.

Walaikum Salam and ameen, ameen ya Allah.    How time flies dear folks, and with the flying of each moment every individual - young or old  - comes a step closer to their Final Journey.   Let us try not to miss even a single opportunity to earn sawab from Him, and the month of Ramadan is one of the most significant of such opportunities.

Yeah sis, and I guess time is also coming close for your marathon grocery shopping for stocking essential Ramadan provisions, right?   :)

Does sister Ruhi stock groceries for the entire month of Ramadan in advance? 


Title: Re: Ramadan 2019 (InshAllah)
Post by: Ruhi_Rose on April 26, 2019, 07:31:24 pm


Yeah sis, brother.  We try our best to stock all non-perishable items like cooking oil, sugar, tea, rice, white flour, chickpea flour, instant powder milk etc.  Also on some essential toiletries.   The idea is to have the minimal and shortest of interruptions on something as boring as grocery shopping in Ramadan.  So, usually our Ramadan shopping is only for stuff like meat, veggies, fruits, fresh bread and some fresh milk which is quite quick.   InshAllah, will go for the "marathon" grocery shopping early May .....   :)

That sounds like an excellent idea, except that the first big shopping must be really lengthy and stressful with the boot of your car getting jammed full.

lol ,, no brother not too stressful.  We aren't the only ones.  Three or four of our families go together in different cars;  so all items are spread out and accommodated in those 3 or 4 cars.

Sounds like a good idea to me too.  I'm sure it saves a lot of trips to the stores on Ramadan days, giving more time at home for the busy Ramadan schedule.  I wish we could also do that.  But our kids are just so moody.  At least one or two of them have a new idea for food everyday.  It's impossible to stock up for the entire month for these brattos  :D

As the blessed month in 2019 comes to a close, our folks have started the usual confusion once again.  Some segments say fasting ends June 3 with Eid al fitr on June 4.  Some say last day of fasting is June 4 and Eid al Fitr June 5.

What about you guys?

That's right Sis.   I tell you what;   in those places where Ramadan 1st was observed on May 5 have announced Eid on June 4.   But we here began Ramadan on May 6.  If we observe 1st of Shawal today on June 4, we would have observed only 29 fasts.  So I am fasting today as my last fast of the blessed month in 2019.

Actually I already started fasting and then at six in the morning when I checked the internet I found out about the confusion.  So I'll just continue my last fast today, Insh'Allah.

What about you folks?

Exactly the same Sister.  My husband is fasting today stating as you mentioned. It seems our scholars here find nothing wrong in reducing the 30 days of Ramadan into 29.  They do that almost every year by starting late and then dropping the 30th fast.

Post by: Heba E. Husseyn on June 04, 2019, 08:33:05 am


We're fasting today.  Sister Zeynab is right.  Those places that are celebrating Eid al Fitr today, June 4, started on May 5 citing the moon for 1st Ramadan.  But our jurists here started late on May 6 and now they want to finish with those who started May 5.  I agree with you, this 29-day cycle is getting too common because of the miscalculation or plain lethargy of our jurists.

Yeah sis.  Right.

To be honest, in all Islamic institutes located in the west, they're very particular about observing Eid-al-Fitr on the same day as in the Middle-East.  But they don't necessarily follow the commencement of the month of Ramadan on the same day.   Thus, Muslim communities in the west very often end up observing 29 fasts.    For e.g. this year, in ME Ramadan 1st was May 5 and Shawal 1st (Eid Fitr) on June 4.  That makes 30 fasts from May 5 to June 3.   But those who started on May 6th fell short by one fast.  It really shouldn't be that way.  I mean, missing a fast which is obligatory (as clearly spelt out in the Noble Quran) for the sake of a non-Quranic celebration is something I have a big problem with.

Spot on brother.  I second you on that to the fullest.  This is exactly what keeps happening here, year after year.   Little effort to start Ramadan on time but in a rush to end it with those who started earlier  ....... trying to grab the cake and eat it too.  They may think that missing one fast is a trifle.  In the Sight of Allah it maybe quite a serious lapse because it's something they could have avoided if they were more careful.

That's exactly the point sister.
