Ramadan Day 11

Ameena mentions that these 10 middle days are about seeking Allah's forgiveness. I started to say astarfirlah and my daughter (dd3) asked me what that meant. Yikes didn't I ever tell her before? So I told her and I also told the other kids about this time of the month and to ask for forgiveness. I managed to give charity today; donating food to the food bank at the grocery store. You just pay for a bag of food as you are checking out. Before that I had stopped at the dollar store to buy bristol boards to make charts to keep track of the kids fasting and praying. I know a little slow on the draw but better late than never (yes I love using cliches). At night I read Quran to the kids again but am still behind. I still have to contact my siblings. Insha Allah tomorrow. DS1 called to invite us over for Eid. This will be his first time hosting Eid at his place.  How was your day 11?


  1. Asalaamu alaikum,
    Did you read Better than a Thousand Months? I did several years ago. It's really a sweet book. Not a how to book, just a family story of Ramadan. Going to get next month's book ready. I am reading your posts on Ramadan and I am impressed Mashallah. Both the book and your involvement is mystifying to my curmudgeonly, anti-social self.

  2. Wa Alaikum salaam

    I haven't read it but when I read the synopsis I felt it really fit in with this post and I 'm really interested to read it. Masha Allah that you are impressed. Are you really anti-social? I love being with people and if you know me for awhile I won't shut up! lol
