Ramadan is one of the most important months of the Islamic Calendar. This month is considered to be the ideal for doubling your rewards by practicing patience, tolerance, learning to sacrifice and most importantly to worship The Almighty as much as possible! During Ramadan, Muslims fast for more than half of the day. From dawn till the time of sunset they pledge to abstain from food mainly and other sorts of worldly personal needs and only worship their Lord. However, usually people forget the fact that there is more to this month than just food. Usually during this month people often fall sick with a lot of different sorts of illnesses including problem in digestion etc. Today we are going to share with you some Suhoor tips to remain healthy during the month of Ramadan.
- It is generally understood that to keep yourself fit and healthy during this month and make sure that we have a proper Iftar to keep our body functioning properly. That's where many people are wrong. They forget that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. Similarly during Ramadan Suhoor is extremely important. Without a proper Suhoor it becomes a bit too difficult to continue the fast throughout the rest of the day.
- To start off with Suhoor holds an extremely important stance during fasting. A lot of people now avoid doing Suhoor. Instead they eat during midnight and fall dead asleep and wake up after the Azaan has been called after which they fall back to sleep again, after praying of course. This isn't the right way to fast.
- Suhoor should be comprised of a balanced diet consisting of all the important components of the nutrition table. Usually in the Middle East during Suhoor Khubuz is an important part for Suhoor. Whole wheat provides a good digestion that cleans up the stomach. This helps the stomach from building up strong acids with a high PH value than neutral.
- For Suhoor my general opinion would be to make that your diet would consist of less oily things. Along with this use of good vegetables such as those that do not digest quick should prove helpful and keep your stomach full through most of the day.
- Yogurt should be added since that controls your thirst. In most homes mothers make sure that the family drinks Milk about an hour before Suhoor to keep the calcium level intact even during Ramadan.
- Use of bread and biscuits should be avoided since they digest off very quickly. Instead eggs and other proteins can be used.
- Avoid taking in a lot of sugar or a lot of salt since that will make you quench for the opposite taste to balance your taste buds out.
In the earlier section I provided and emphasized that during Ramadan one should exercise and keep their body in good shape and health. Your diet plays a very important part in this. It's always good to keep your body functioning properly because without our full functioning organs we are nothing. I'll make sure I bring up Iftaar Things for you readers soon too. Till then happy fasting!
