When many are supposedly sad because Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic Calendar, is over, am Actually glad (for all the good reasons, i assure you)..
Spiritually, this Ramadan was very fruitful, and full with allot of "alone" time that i needed to clear my head.. Socially, however, with the ongoing Ramadan popular trends, this month was/is considered as hectic as the word describes.. Its really sad when you have a conversation with many people, trying to reflect on what's so different this Ramadan, and many mention TV highlights and TV flops of the month.. This Ramadan was more about TV than last year, and the year before, and god helps us if this continues in the years after..
The last 10 nights of Ramadan, in which Muslims ought to get closer to Allah, it's also known as the 10 nights of Credit Card diarrhea and/or the yearly shopping stampede.. So, for those brave enough to accompany their families on these darkest of Commercial nights, i pray for you all..
But i guess what really matters is what's happening on a personal level, and for me, it was a great ride and Al Hamdulilah for living through the last day..
On a blog related note: Hopefully things will slow down now, and guess what, HapHazard is One year (and four days) old.. So Happy Birthday, the least commented blog I ever worked on!
It wouldn't be this quiet if it wasn't for you, silent readers.. I thank you all, all of you 2036 unique visitors and the 1138 loyal returning IP addresses (I spend too much time on Google Analytics, i know)..
It was a great year, and the best is yet to come (i hope, or else that iPad Free 8-ball app lied to me) :)
So, how was YOUR Ramadan?
