Who, What, and Where

Constantly looking at the movement of the clock when usually rarely noticed. Seconds, minutes to hours will be so very meaningful. Temptation indeed, but there are many who behave like that. Like it or not, for those who carry out fasting (shaum), waiting for the Maghrib call to prayer is the most awaited moment. Usually not caring and sometimes even indifferent, suddenly miss the Muezzins to call the Adhan.

A variety of foods are already available on the table, from things like dates and water to "hungry eyes" style ones such as dates, compote, fruit ice, fried foods, or various other foods that can arouse your appetite. It can't be said that it's actually natural, even though you don't eat and drink all day it doesn't have to be used as a time for revenge when breaking the fast (iftar).

Phenomena listened carefully to listen to the fastest call to prayer that sounded. When the call to prayer is given and in a fraction of a second later, the mind that had previously ordered the limbs to immediately eat all the food. The call to prayer isn't over yet, it's full!

Apart from that, there is another fact that is unusual and only found in the fasting month, in the fasting month the expenditure on food and drink does not decrease, but in fact increases. Because all the food seems good to buy, kind of want revenge. Though not all food can be spent.

However, it turns out that this can also be taken as one of the lessons in the month of Ramadan, where this can be described as the pleasures of the world which turn out to be only deceptive and temporary. Eye hunger, not physical hunger. In fact, by eating just a little, you can feel incredibly full.

Iftar becomes a kind of small "celebration" that is celebrated by each Muslim during the month of Ramadan. However, sometimes people forget important things when breaking the fast. Namely praying, being grateful, realizing the meaning of breaking the fast, and getting closer to the Creator. Iftar is sometimes used as a moment for reunions or just gathering with family and friends. The moment of Iftar has become entrenched worship in Muslim communities in particular. In Indonesia, Buka Bersama, or Buka Shaum Together, and there are also several other terms to name it.

To be honest, this Ramadan for me personally feels faster, doesn't feel so heavy, and there are more things to be grateful for. People say that if something feels fast, it's because of fun. If you are happy, time does seem shorter. Hopefully, this is not a bad thing for me in carrying out worship. The problem is, what do I do that makes me happy? Am I too happy that the many iftar activities with my children at home are more meaningful this time? And for this year, as the value of happiness as a parent increases, until today, on the 18th day of the month of Ramadan, none of my children have lost their fast. Although there are still 12 more days left. WL.

Even if it is just a simple meal or in an ordinary place, if it is seasoned with gratitude, it will taste extraordinary. It's true, sometimes behind "simplicity", there is a pleasure that is more tangible and more meaningful.

So for me to say maybe what is more important is breaking the fast with "who" than breaking the fast with "what" or "where". In my opinion, food can still be bought, places can still be found, but it's difficult for togetherness. Because togetherness turns out to be very expensive and this can not be bought with money.

Being able to meet at one time, with family, with friends, and more than that: meeting with Robb, Allah, in a solemn prayer. It was a speck of heaven that I could feel on earth. So that it can be said that happiness is actually so simple and exists in simplicity.

My family and I have never practiced breaking the fast together outside the home. Since I was a child, I even applied it to children. I always break my fast at home. I think, breaking the fast is something to just break the fast and be grateful that we have been fasting. And the most important thing is not to neglect the maghrib prayer, don't be negligent with food to make us lazy. Look at cafes, restaurants and food stalls decorated as beautiful as possible to attract customers when they open together. Hopefully it doesn't make us forget ourselves, the momentum when breaking the fast, don't make breaking the fast like revenge

Today has been a frustrating day for fasting people. A little effort can be made to worship and please Allah. Fasting does not cause much trouble because it is a blessing from Allah.

Some questions that will never have clear answers. The deeper we go in finding out "what" or "how" the more we forget where we came from!
