I came across this amazing organization called, believers bail out. They are trying to help muslims from low income background who are stuck in prison awaiting trial because they can’t afford to pay bail. I am sharing this article here, if anyone is interested in giving zakah or sadaqah. A lot of people might wonder, why would you want to help criminals. Read the article, you will understand.

Thanks for Sharing this link Ajfar. a lot of people unfortunately, end up in Jail for crimes they either did not commit or they were discriminated against, which is very sad.

Day One complete Allhamdullilah. It was more or less ok due to cooler weather.

For me the best way to open fast is dates and cold milk.

These parathas and pakoras at sehri and iftar doesn't really help anyone. Most of the people have issues with thirst and not hunger I think.

May Allah forgive me for I sinned and lied to my mom (RIP).

Back in the mid 80s when Ershad was in power, during the months of Ramadan he made a law for all the restaurants in Dhaka to stay closed during fasting hours (day time.
I knew two (2) Biriyani restaurants where I frequented almost everyday during day time - Continental Biriyani House at Moghbazar Mor and Oriental Biriayni Parlor on New Circular Road between Moghbazar and Mouchak Market - and they would leave their rear entrance opens for selective customers. I would go to either one of those places most afternoons and eat a whole spicy chicken roast and double kacchi biriyani or a double Murag pulau! And I would tell my mom that I am fasting and going to the mosque for Zuhr prayer. When I would return home, I would be so full that I would n't be able to eat much Iftar.

I made both Chicken and Beef skewer for yesterday's Iftar. Not the best idea to bake it in the oven. Chicken turned out good, but wife & mom didn't like the beef much.

One week of Ramadan done Allhamdullilah. Hope you all are carrying on well.

I have done 2 iftars at our local mosque. It’s a nice experience at my local. The biryani they serve for iftari was nice. Not many touch the fruit platter.

Biriany after roja is no good for me.

I would rather have my Piaju and chola followed by plain food... something like plain bhaat daal lau chingri and either murgi or goru cooked with less spice and lots of jhool, followed by fruits.

What is a greater sin for an able body muslim than not fasting on the month of Ramadan?

Not fasting, fine - but eating lunch in front of a Roojadar muslim??
Even greater sin is eat lunch cooked by a fasting muslim and complaining about lack of noon in the Torkari or to say, "Bhai arektu Jhool den..."
And even greater sin is to release the ghee and spice , onion soaked burp on a pious muslim face after eating a lunch and say...'ooofff khub besi keye felechi...Ekhon ekebarey Hai Pai dicchi...!"

This yr I am using mustard sauce on my boot-chola-muri instead of mustard oil.
Can anyone tell me if mustrd oil is actually bad for health? the mustard oil I buy from Indian shops is for "external use" and not to be used as a food item.

Yes, you are right about mustard oil from Asian groceries. But, in crowded metropolis areas you should be able to find the Radhuni brand which I use. It is edible.

Salam every1. I hope all your fasting is going smoothly.

Allhamdullilah today is the 20th day of Ramadan only 10 more days to go.

What I was dreading was a heat wave. So far only a few days had really hot temperatures but on many days it has remained cool or bearable in London. Hope it stays like this for the remaining time too.

My Mother in Law cooked some Haleem last weekend which was a treat :D

I wonder if they still play the Rooafza ad during iftar time they used to play during the 90s and 00s when I was in Bangladesh.

For the past few weeks if I am at home iftar:
Date, milk, some puff pastries and chanchur

at the Mosque:
Date, Biryani, onion pakora, kebabs and fruit

I recently learned about two amazing projects, wanted to share with you guys here.

1) Believer Bail Out. They are raising money to use toward bail for Muslims who are stuck behind bars while they await for their trial date. Our religion is all about second chances. Before some of the companions of Prophet (SAW) came into the fold of islam, they had bad records but islam changed them.

Here is a small excerpt from their website. Read more here: https://believersbailout.org/how-we-work/

"Believer Bail Out (BBO) will bail out Muslims in partnership with the Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF) and Sirat Chicago. BBO will raise funds for this zakat-eligible and tax-deductible charity. Family members and supporters of incarcerated Muslims will reach out to Believers Bail Out to apply for support. Cases will be reviewed according to our criteria and BBO will partner CCBF to post bond. Once the individual is released BBO will provide support and connect them to other community resources until the case is resolved. Once the case is resolved the bond funds will return to CCBF to be used to bail out a new individual."

2) A Continuous Charity is a muslim organization that provides interest-free loans for higher education.

Excerpt from their website. Read more here: https://acceducate.org/

"Our goal is to promote the spiritual and intellectual development of Muslims throughout North America by providing interest-free loans for higher education. By doing this, we hope to bring about a generation of graduates that will have a strong Muslim identity and be well-versed in their fields, using both for the benefit of mankind."

I wanted to share names of these organizations here because I know a lot of people calculate their Zakah around this time of the year. Most of the times we send money to other countries because there is a greater need in those countries and that's great. But we should also think about here, the place we call home. There are amazing organizations trying to make a difference in people's life and we shouldn't miss out on being part of these projects. Please pass along the names of these organizations to others.

I have recently noticed that the concept of Sehri parties at home and restaurants are quite popular with Dhaka residents.

In my time in Bangladesh this was almost unheard of. I probably would have attended one or two from close family members who lived close by to me if I was in Bangladesh. But I am not sure if its a great idea.

What are your views or experiences? Do you have time for reading Fajr? Do you take your driver with you?

Salams and hope everything is having a great Ramadan so far. This time is an opportunity to multiply our good deeds and what a better way by helping your own fellow brother from BC.

As people may know I run a podcast called 'Boys In The Cave' which is purely for Dawah. Alhamdullilah we have quite a bit of reach and grown over the past couple of months.

We have had big guests on the show already such as Dr Shadee, Daniel Haqiqatjou, Dr Ghilan and many others.

http://boysinthecave.libsyn.com/

As you may imagine we have regular website costs which become tough on us. So it would be amazing in the month of ramadan if people from BC could possibly help by becoming patreon members today. It is only a small donation of $5 per month which will be used to paying for our websites online and also getting equipment so we can expand even further in shaa Allah.

May Allah reward you all !

Everything gets commercialized for the wrong reasons. You also have Iftar buffets these days where you stuff yourself from Iftar to Sheri. Wth?

Any free food is welcome. So either its ifter or Sehri, i accept all of them, with no exception. If I have multiple invitation, then I ask for menu and then decise with one to attend first and which one I go to just show face.

Do you have time for reading Fajr?

Usually the host arrange for Fajr. if not, I return back home and pray Fajr.

Do you take your driver with you?

Yes, of-course. because I am the one who drives.

TBH one can stuff themselves at home too. But I don’t think this Sehri party would be to my preference because I would rather eat and pray in peace and go to sleep straight afterwards.

I have been to an Iftar buffet in London organised by a leading caterer Sapna and tbh their functions are good. They have their own hall and also have separate rooms for prayer even for the women. People are more or less civil at queues

We celebrate Eid at my inlaws. At her house its usually Shemai paratha (for me chicken as I cant stand that combo) before Eid prayers.

Followed by chicken pastry and shemai after Eid prayer snacks.

Lunch usually some biryani, chicken roast and kebab tikka.

Damn it now I am hungry!
