  1. Assalaamu’alykum.

    Right now, I feel the same way as you did about eating in the morning. As of this moment, Suhoor (the Arabic term for breakfasting for a fast) is going to end soon and I don’t feel like eating at all. I know I’m going to regret this a bit later, but for now, I’m content with not eating too much. Although I do wish I didn’t eat so much earlier, so I could have prepared better for the fast ahead. Thanks for sharing that tip with us.

    I’m really glad that you tried to include a few naps in your day! I’m sure you’ve seen the miracles it can do for you. As for grogginess/grumpiness after a nap, I find that washing my face and going for a short walk outside/wherever you can walk really helps liven me up. As Muslims, we normally take breaks for prayers, and since that includes moving around a bit and washing up, I find that it does bring your brain back up to speed.

    I am impressed to see that you’ve been able to go through the last few days without many bumps on the road, and that you’ve learned so much about fasting in such a short span of time. I hope your last day goes well for you, and I’m looking forward to your next post.

You would be interested to study the habits of Basketball Hall of Famer, Hakeem Olajuwon who was still recognized as one of the league’s elite centers despite his strict observance of Ramadan, which occurred during the playing season throughout his career. Olajuwon was noted as sometimes playing better during the month, and in 1995 he was named NBA Player of the Month in February, even though Ramadan began on February 1 of that year.
