Ramadan Reflections - Day 12

The blessings that Allah bestows upon on our food during Ramadan is a miracle in itself. Two cups of rice, which was never enough in our home, now lasts for days. Dinner is so easily made and we are fulfilled and satisfied with much less than we are used to. Subhanallah, the barakah that Allah puts in one morsel of bread is more than we are able to imagine.

Today, we came home very late and had not prepared food. With only 40 minutes left until Maghrib, I was able to make chicken corn soup, Chinese chilli chicken, white rice and the sauces that go with each dish. I can't remember the last time I was able to whip up so much food in such a short amount of time. And without having to test my food, each dish tasted delicious!

Indeed, it is all through the mercy of Allah. If only we could see the miracles that surround us in our daily lives, we would be much more thankful for all that we have. 

Until next time...
