Hubby , the kids and myself went to Kampung Siglap Mosque to do our teraweeh last nite.

What's so "special" abt last nite teraweeh , was because my cousin (together with her kids & hubby) decided to join us . It was my cousin's very first time doing teraweeh , especially so in a mosque.

Ive been encouraging her the past weeks to try to make it a point this Ramadan, hence , she decided to joined us last nite. She said , at least , im around to "guide" and indirectly motive her. Alhamdulillah .

I told her , i dont tink i would be able to do teraweeh every nite (in a mosque), most probably over the weekends only. Tonite , i'll be preparing our iftar and we'll do maghrib at home , then will head to the mosque .....she's joining us , again, Insya allah.

Personally, i am no religious person, but with little knowledge (and realisations) i gained fm attending those classes , i try to share with friends and families. Insya allah.

Anyhoooot , besides shedding few pounds during fasting , i try to make every Ramadan different than the previous...especially my goal setting (spiritually).

Overall , is to gain taqwa.

It is related of al-Hasan ibn Abil Hasan al-Basri that he once passed by a group of people who were laughing merrily.

He said: ‘God, Great and Glorious is He, has made the month of Ramadan a racecourse, on which His creatures compete in His worship. Some have come in first and won, while others have lagged behind and lost. It is absolutely amazing to find anybody laughing and playing about on the day when success attends the victors, and failure the wasters. By God, if the veil were lifted off, the doer of good would surely be preoccupied with his good works and the evildoer with his evil deeds.’

PS: tommorrw iftar will be at my mom's place....soo happy ,cos ,my siblings will be there too ! :)

salam ramadhan nor.
you must be so happy when your cousin decided to join you for terawikh at the mosque since it's her first time.
i envy you to be able to solat at the mosque and doing terawikh. so far i'm not fasting yet due to 'monthly business' and i kind of feel left behind by everyone.
anyway, have a happy ramadhan sis.
