Each times when the Holy Ramadhan comes, I often hear a saying this Holy Month should be a worship month to every Moslem for the next 12 months. Therefore at Ramadhan, a moslem should practice self-restraint, cleanse the body and soul from impurities and re-focus one’s self on the worship of God and charity to mankind.

Some of my friends up dated their social media or blog by telling others that Ramadan is a time to be more productive in their writing profession.

Telling you the truth, I never understand the meaning of those saying. I’ve been fasting since 7th yo, but I never feel or see any significant changes in my life. Indeed, I felt more changes when I do a practices consistently, not just in Ramadhan.

So does the productivity issue; to me, Ramadhan brought more house work than the others months. I also experienced, that many house wife were complaining because they are more busy in Ramadhan days than the typical days. Fasting also made them do more spending on food, gets up so early in the morning and so on.

However, I still believe that Ramadhan should be a real work out for every Moslem. It is I who couldn’t find the meaning of Ramadhan is.

Until one day, it was the tenth day of Ramadhan, I finally found out the meaning of Ramadan as an exercise month.

That day, at 8 a.m I have sat front of my computer to start working. All of the house work has been done. My home was clean and tidy. Thus I can finish 3 articles before the Asr came. At night I was able to break my fasting with the whole family on time, played with my little daughter, did taraweeh and recite Qur’an calmly; because there was no deadline wait or house work undone.

I still remember, that day after the suhoor meal, I did my washing dish and dirty clothes. After Fajr, I ironed clothes and clean the house. Because all of the family members were fasting, I simply shopping for some vegetables without the need to cook.

Finally I got the lesson of Ramadhan. Ramadhan teach me how to use the day and time which Allah had given effectively. I ought to fill my day with such schedule I did at Ramadhan.

Suhoor educates me to finish house work before dawn ahead and using the day to work optimally. In the evening, time for iftar and taraweeh are the time for me to gather with family, do more worship to Allah without being bothered by deadline or others.

Ramadhan also teach me to pray on time, such away I should do sal’ah for the whole years. Doing sal’ah on time made me have more time to do others worship, such as sunnah rawatib, and recite Qur’an. It means that my worship is no longer occupy the rest of my time, but one of my prime time.

I am grateful, at this Ramadhan I finally found the essence of the worship. Because Ramadhan now I knew how to use my time as Allah said at QS. Al-Asr.
