It is the beginning of Ramadan in Malaysia. Muslim start to fast today. We wake up for the Syhor [an early breakfast] this morning and had a light meal. The beginning of the first fasting day. Fasting is actually the state of the mind. Once you set your mind to fast during this month of Ramadan you would not find any difficulty of fasting during the day. Actually you just have to change your eating and drinking habit from the normal ritual. During this month instead of eating and drinking during the day you just do it during the night, from after the sun set until the time of the sun rise. It would not be difficult if you set your mind to do just that and focus on fasting. Fasting is not just abstaining from not eating or drinking, it is a total discipline of the body and the mind. You must have Love in your heart all day long and only with that would your fasting served its purpose.
