Believe It Or Not, Ramadan Is The Best Time Of The Year For Muslims

Everyone around you is trying to become the best version of themselves, yet somehow, you’re all connected.

If I told you Ramadan is the best time of the year for ALL Muslims around the world, you’d think I’m crazy. Because how could fasting from dawn to sunset (which for the East Coast is about 16 hours) be enjoyable? How can Muslims actually look forward to this month? There’s one thing to sum it all up: Ramadan Vibes.

Somehow during this month, you get this insanely indescribable feeling of tranquility in your heart. Everyone around you is trying to become the best version of themselves, yet somehow, you’re all connected. You still feel united like never before. It’s the best time to get closer to God, but everyone else is also trying to do that too; so, you’re in it together. You’re trying to focus on yourself, but you want everyone around you to improve too.

For 30 days, charity donations are at an all-time high. For 30 days, you pray more than ever before. For 30 days, you’re one step closer to God. For 30 days, you’re one step closer to the best version of yourself. For 30 days, you’re in the best state of mind. For 30 days, you celebrate the month of Ramadan. You become saddened by its completion, and you then pray that you may witness and live the following Ramadan.

[Disclaimer: Just because someone is in their best state of mind, doesn’t mean they’re fake the rest of the year, or that they’re “Ramadan Muslims.” Whatever happens during Ramadan, we pray that it may carry out with you for the rest of the year. And yes, the “Ramadan Vibe” doesn’t exist all year round, so it’s hard to maintain that feeling all year round. But that doesn’t even begin to belittle the impact Ramadan has on every individual.]

At the end of the day, remember that we all struggle to be the best person we can. We all have our ups and downs. This month is just dedicated to becoming the best Muslim. For myself, and millions of others we await this month because it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14583

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
