Here’s your dose of some halal humor 🙂

1. That moment at Suhoor

Food for thought
Don’t skip the Suhoor for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Take the Suhoor, for certainly in it is blessing.”(Bukhari)

2. You eat as much Suhoor as you can because it feels like iftar is so far away.

It’s going to be fine and you will survive.  Just don’t stuff yourself!

Food for thought
Another etiquette of fasting that was stated by the scholars is that the fasting person should not be extravagant in his suhoor and should not fill his stomach with food, rather he should eat a moderate amount. The words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), “The best suhoor for the believer is dates” points to this meaning, because dates, in addition to their high nutritional value, are also light on the stomach and easily digested. If eating one’s fill is also accompanied by staying up late and sleeping during the day, the purpose of fasting is also lost. Click here to learn more about the etiquettes of Suhoor.

3. The agonizing moment when you wake up for Suhoor and the Fajr Adhan goes off

Food for thought
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy on him) said: “Suhoor is not a condition for fasting to be valid, rather it is mustahabb (recommended), because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Have suhoor, for in suhoor there is blessing.” [Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, vol. 4, p. 259].

4. That extra water catches up with you.

Because you drank so much that you need to use the toilet every 15 minutes.


5. When you are over-zealous to dry your mouth after every wudu

Food for thought
However, if the water reaches into the throat or stomach unintentionally or due to forgetfulness, it does not affect the fasting.

6. When you are successful to follow a healthy diet only till the middle of Ramadan.

7. When you accidently forget you are fasting

Food for thought
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever forgets he is fasting and eats or drinks, let him complete his fast for it is Allah Who has fed him and given him to drink.” [Al-Bukhaari (6669) and Muslim (1155)].

If one does so intentionally he commits sin and has to make up that day later.


8. When you end up eating before the Maghrib adhan

Food for thought
What to say when you are fasting and someone is rude to you?

إنِّي صَائِمٌ, إنِّي صَائِمٌ
I am fasting. I am fasting.

(Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-BAri 4/103, Muslim 2/806)


10. The Bad Breath Dilemma

Although our breath may smell better than musk to Allah, it’s not an excuse to breathe on everyone we meet.

Food for thought
It should be noted that the smell that comes from the fasting person’s mouth as a result of the fast is not something to be disliked, because it is the effect of obedience to Allah. In the hadeeth it says that “the smell from the fasting person’s mouth is better in the sight of Allah than the fragrance of musk.” It is enough to use the siwaak which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) encouraged us to use.

11. When you don’t have any food around you
