Ramadan Challenge: #2 Nimo

For 30 days and 30 nights, my body speaks a language of self restraint.

My stomach mutes it's screams

and my head ignores it's aches

My tongue disregards it's heaviy dehydration.

All that is carnal in me yearns to be set free

but as He promised to shackle man's enemy

I will imprison my nafs

and hold my tongue

and force my stomach to bear hunger gladly

For when I do this for Him.

He does so much more for me

Setting a place in His gardens where the righteous will be.

I bear all this not with reservations

but welcome Ramadan gladly.

Ramadan kareem.

Nimo Hussein
