At the beginning of Ramadan, I looked into everything I could find on the subject. I wanted to make it count. I wanted to get closer to God.
As I told you before, I did spent this time mostly alone. And it was great. I could decide what was good for me. I did not feel any pressure in doing this or that. Or not doing things right.
From beginning to end, I used to listen to this Nasheed. And it brought me peace and gave me a sense of belonging. I felt I was part of a much bigger community than I ever thought could exist. I felt close to millions of Muslims fasting around the globe.
I was not alone.
