For me, the first couple days of Ramadan are the hardest, so I like to keep it light and stay home- read Quran, start working on my surah memorization, and make the iftar dinner simple. You know, make it low key, physically.
In honor of said tradition, I will share a joke that a friend of mine found on reddit- keeping it light on wordpress 😉
There were two white christian men, John and Mike, whose plane crashed into a desert. Luckily they survived unharmed. As they traveled through the hot desert looking for food and water, they gave up and sat down, thinking of what to do.
As the dust in the air settled, they suddenly could view a mosque ahead. They became very hopeful. But then John said ”Muslims are there. They might help us if we say we are Muslim.” Then Mike said ”No way, I won’t say I’m Muslim, I’m gonna be honest”.
So John and Mike went to the Mosque ahead and were greeted by an Arab Muslim, who asked what their names were.
John thought of a Muslim name and said, ‘My name is Muhammad’. And Mike said ‘My name is Mike’.
The Arab man said ‘Hello Mike.’ And told the other men to take Mike and give him food and drink.
Then he turned to John and said, ‘Salaam Muhammad. Ramadan Mubarek! (Hello Muhammad, Happy Ramadan)
