What Sehri Or Suhoor Looks Like For Us On Most Days Alongside Leftovers From The Previous Iftar For The Kids

Suhoor/Sehri Is A Significant Part During Any Fast.It Is The Pre Dawn Meal That Starts The Fast.The Dawn Prayer Or Fajr Is The First Prayer Of The Day.

There Are Many Ahadith Stating The Importance Of This Blessed Meal,First & The Best Reason Being A Sunnah Subhaanalla

Sunnah Literally Means Path Of Guidance.

It Also Means The Practices Of The Beloved Prophet Muhammed (SAL) Which Is Followed By Every Believer

His Lifestyle Is Our Way Of Life!!!

Allah Says: “He Who Obeys The Messenger Obeys Allah

This Time Is Best Time For Connecting With Your Creator

This Meal Should Not Be Skipped In Any Way,It Is Highly Recommended To Eat Something Hearty & Fulfilling During This Hour.Not Something Too Heavy Or Too Light That It Will Hinder Your Performance On The Compulsory Acts Of Ibadah Throughout The Day.

We Realized That Having Food With More Nutritional Value & Slow Release In Energy Actually Helps While Fasting Than Having Heavy Meals Bcz Consuming Too Salty,Or Sugary Food Can Actually Leave You Craving For Water Throughout The Rest Of The Day

So We Made A Choice To Take Baby Steps On Bringing A Change & Iam So Glad We Did Alhamdulilla.Never Felt Better!!!

Not That We Don’t Enjoy Our Srilankan Favorites But We Just Switched Them To Our Iftar Meal Instead!!!

This Ramadan Has Definitely Been A Different One Subhaanalla Bcz Of The Unavailability Of Certain Food We Would Usually Have But Alhamdulilla Still Grateful For All The Options We Are Blessed With.

These Are Few Options That We Consider During Suhoor

Always Remember To Prep Ahead For A Balanced Meal.

COFFEE Is One Of The First Things I Make When I Get In The Kitchen During Suhoor!!!Whether It Be Black Or With A Dash Of Nut Milk Always Coffee First!!!

I Let The Greek Yogurt Sit On A Paper Towel Over A Strainer In The Refrigerator For Atleast 24 Hours Or More If Needed.
I Replaced The Paper Towel Every Time I Felt It Was Too Wet & When It’s Not Wet To The Top,I Knew The Labneh Is Ready To Be Enjoyed.
