How I spend Ramadan in Doha, Qatar

today was the first day of Ramadan, and for me is the scariest day, if it passes quietly and peacefully than the rest of the month will be amazing, if not than it will be difficult.

Why? because I don't prepare for it like many other people, to be able to fast Ramadan without suffering, you need  to have a habit to fast one or two days weekly in normal days ( you practice fasting in order to make it a habit) but a conscious habit!

Also it is difficult because some people are addicted to either smoking, coffee or tea.

For me, if I don't drink coffee in the morning than my day is hell ( I get a strong headache and it feels like a big stone lying on my eyes).

So the secret to succeed  fasting in Ramadan apart from practicing throughout the year, is to do SOHOUR.

Sohour is, drink you favorite drink ( for me is coffee) and eat  whatever you need to keep you kind of full, this has to happen before the first call to prayer, early in the morning.

So today, I was amazed and happy because I was able to fast the first day without feeling weak or having a headache and it was a successful day!!

So for all the Muslims, RAMADAN KAREEM and for everyone happy days ahead!!!
