Time flies! Wallahi how fast is Ramadaan leaving us. The last 10 nights of Ramadan is approaching us soon, may Allah almighty forgive us, accept from us, and shower us with acceptance during this coming last 10 days, ameen.
Recall back weeks ago, in the article Ramadan – a Month of Humanist Spiritually, I was excited about this blessing month, listed down few things about what Ramadan means to me, and also pointed out Ramadan holds different meaning for everyone.
For Muslims, this is a month of self-regulation and self-training, with the hope that this training will last beyond the end of Ramadan. If the lessons that we learned during the Ramadan, whether in terms of dietary intake or righteousness, are carried on after the blessing month end, it is beneficial for one’s entire life.
On the physical side, our body also gain lots of benefits from Ramadan fasting since there is no malnutrition or inadequate calorie intake. We basically miss lunch and take an early breakfast and do not eat until dusk.
Abstinence from water during this period is not bad at all and in fact, it causes concentration of all fluids within the body, producing slight dehydration. The body has its own water conservation mechanism; in fact, it has been shown that slight dehydration and water conservation, at least in plant life, improve their longevity, according to the study.
Spend sometime listen below this two videos and learn more about the benefits that we can gain from the Ramadan fasting.
