Fasting



I wake up early before the start of the day
I go to the kitchen and make something to eat
In one hour it will be time for Fajr and Iíll pray
After prayer Iíll start fasting and I will not cheat

Today I wonít eat or drink nor fight and lie
My intention are to please Allah Alone
Sometimes it gets hard and I might let out a sigh
But I know pleasing Allah you can not postpone

I feel full of energy and I am filled with joy
Even when it gets hard I donít need food or drink
I am amazed that fasting is something I enjoy
Because pleasing Allah is the best , donít you think?

The day passes and itís not as easy anymore
My mind gets drawn to pictures of drinks and food
So I try to distract myself from it by finding a chore
And still Iím amazed about my energy and good mood

So far this day my thoughts have been pure
And I did not argue or attempt to fight
I start to imagine what the poor have to endure
Blessed am I by Allah for this insight

I look outside and I know soon the sun will set
Just one more hour, the time for Maghrib is near
I read some Qurían because itís not time yet
This helps me focus and it keeps my mind clear

I hear the Athan itís time to break my fast
I make duía and happiness makes my heart soar
Iím amazed about this day and how quick it passed
This feeling inside me Iíve never felt before

I pray and soon after it is time to eat
It fills my heart with joy and my stomach with food
Every taste of food or drink is a true threat
I will fast more so once more by this feeling Iíll be imbued

So I will say this unto all who truly believe
Fast and you will see what I said here is true
To please Allah is what we all want to achieve
And to please Allah is what Iíll always pursue
