Ramadan Little Moments in School

By Farhanah Afiqah - June 03, 2017


Ramadan, or also widely known as the fasting month (I use the term "bulan puasa" more frequent than "bulan Ramadan") is the most awaited month by the muslims. Celebrating Ramadan with family and relatives by having sahur and iftar together is surely a sweet moment for each of us.

However, studying in a boarding school prevented me from those things. But still, I enjoyed fasting at school with my friends so much!

Tarawih in school is special. We pray at the dataran on long praying mats are arranged in rows under the clear night sky.

I love praying at the dataran because it is cool even without having any fans. The breeze let us pray at ease. Stargazing after each two rakaats of tarawih is fun too! However, this only applies when the weather is okay. We pray at our respective musolla when it rains.

However for some reasons, we started to pray in the school hall (Dewan Sri Bestari) later on. Tarawih in DSB is not so comfortable. Fans are at the side of the hall and the hall is packed with humans.

This is not tarawih. Just want to show the dewan haha. Kalau tarawih memang padat sampai ke atas pentas.
Plus, it is quite embarrassing when there is no place to pray but the hall stage. Kiblat is the opposite to the stage, but still it's too appealing when only three rows of girls sit on the stage while everyone is on the floor.

But now, I don't think they still have their tarawih at the hall nor the dataran because our new surau is built. I never had the chance to step in that surau yet.

Oh! Not to forget, I miss Ustaz Farizan's qunut too. He speaks Arabic fluently that his prayers sound like as if he is praying with all his heart, and not just simply reciting a du'a.

🍦Teachers' kindness
Ramadan means Hari Raya Aidil Fitri is only one month away. And Hari Raya Aidil Fitri means duit raya!

Somtimes the teachers give duit raya for each of us. Of course we are so happy to receive the packet (even for the Form 5 and Form 6 students hahah)!

Oh, our school even have their own duit raya packet every year. Tak ingat mana aku simpan.

SBPs have their own menu schedule for every meal. But, Ramadan is the only month where the schedule is not applicable.

There are various scrumptious dishes waiting for us after our maghrib prayer like ikan keli sambal, kuih and much more! (obviously I like the ikan keli the most haha).
the Dining Hall
And also, our friends who lives nearby usually have their parents visiting them, so kalau murah rezeki, dapat la merasa makanan dari rumah sikit.

🍦Religious Programmes
Ramadan is the month where everyone do their best in increasing their ibadah. With that, various religious programmes are held.

For an instance, tadarus al-Quran is held after the Asar prayer, where we sit together in circles and read the respective juz one after another. Reciting al-Quran together is nice because it encourages me to read al-Quran. I mean, it's more fun and merrier when you do it with your friends rather than reciting it alone, where sometimes your tajweed might be wrong and there is no one who can guide you.

Ahh definitely missing these moments 💖. And how about you? Do you have any Ramadan memories?
