It is OK if you’re feeling anxious about pregnancy/breastfeeding and fasting. No it doesn’t matter that others have done it. Listen to your body, your lord is merciful and has given you grace should you need it.
It’s OK if you just manage to pray your salaah and fall over in bed from exhaustion..caring for these little beings is an ibadaah too.
It’s OK if your fajr is late because you are cradling a crying baby who refuses to sleep… These moments will pass.
It’s OK if you don’t spend every night in additonal prayer because your baby refuses to sleep anywhere but your arms…try some zikr while he needs to be near you.
It’s OK if you are just getting by…
It’s OK If you don’t have Ramadaan decor up in your home, or you haven’t purchased new books to read to your children.. You will do what you can when you can.
It’s OK if you haven’t planned Ramadan activities and crafts. They will learner through you.
It’s OK if you’re just trying to get through the day…
Its OK if you haven’t prepared 10 different savouries or an Instagram-able iftar spread, you’re doing the best you can and your family have eaten.
It’s OK if you just get home from work and reheat leftovers from the day before because You didn’t have time to meal prep.
Its OK if you don’t send a fancy servings of various treats to the masjid. They will have enough.
It’s OK if your baby’s nap time is spent with you catching up on some sleep also… Because you’ve been up from sehri with your older kids needs and never got a chance to rest.
It’s OK if you cry because you lost your cool after fasting the whole day, tomorrow will be better.
It’s OK if others judge you, for fasting or not fasting, they are not in your shoes, the almighty is the ultimate judge.
From one mother to another… IT’S OK!!
Time to reclaim Ramadan moms… Make it work for you, no guilt, just reflection, appreciation, gratitude, patience, love kindness, self care, meditation, salaah and dua…May Allah swt accept all our efforts and see the intentions in our hearts as we care for the amanahs he has blessed us with ❤️
