Today marks the start of Ramadhan in Wollongong and also at some other parts of the world where the crescent moon has sighted. And this holy month will continue for 30 days until 18th of August 2012, InsyaAllah. Semua umat Islam di seluruh dunia akan berpuasa di siang hari dan merebut pahala ibadat sunat pada malamnya. This is why we consider Ramadhan as a blessed month.
The moment I stepped out from my house this morning, I was amazed with how beautiful the first day of our fasting month is. The sky is so blue without any shade of white clouds and the sunlight is so bright that it helps to balance the chilly winter breeze. Very very beautiful. So right after I found an empty spot to park the car, then I decided to have a short walk to Botanic Garden which is located right in front of my uni.
|Very beautiful day. Don't you think so?

I spent some alone time walking and thinking and I am glad how I was reminded about the spiritual reflection of this holy month. Ini mungkin Ramadhan yang terakhir I dekat sini. I really have to spend it wisely. I need to enrich my Ramadhan in many ways and make it different, for the better. Let's everybody join me is this spiritual journey yea! :)
RAMADHAN MUBARAK EVERYONE!
