And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it] (2:42)
Ramadan is a great time to rid ourselves of “half-truths” and omissions. Have the faith and confidence to be 100 per cent truthful at all times. It is amazing how this habit will change the way you live, knowing that nothing can be concealed through cleverly chosen words. It is humbling to admit to your boss that you are late because you overslept, not because there was traffic, and you might think twice about leaving the family at home waiting while you have that second cup of coffee after Isha prayers, if you know that when they ask, you will have to tell them exactly why you were late. It is difficult and transformative, and the Holy Month is a great time to build this habit.
Fasting Health tips
Drink sufficient amount of water
As mercury soars, staying hydrated while fasting becomes essential. Do drink at least two litres of water to remain hydrated for the day during the fast. The tip is to eat Suhoor meal at least half an hour before the time for Fajr so you have at least 30 minutes to just drink water. Sip gradually and not chug up all at once. Avoid tea and coffee as they can drain your balanced body temperature.
