While my girl is helping me in the kitchen, she said to me that in Ramadan we have to be more patience.
Then I said to her: "yes, you are right, honey."
After a while, she is accidentally eating the sweet.
Girl: "Oh this is so good, ibu."
Me: "Are you fasting?"
Girl: "Oh, no I forget about it."
Me: "That's okay if you forget."
Girl: "So I still have my fasting."
Me:"Yes, you do still have your fasting if you forget."
Girl:"Yes, i am still fasting. Now I remember that Sheikh in masjid was talking about it in the class."
Me: "Honey, it's okay if you want to break your fast."
May Allah accept our fasting in this Ramadan and doing it with sincerity. Aameen. ===================
And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn appears to you.
Then complete your fast till the night comes.
