4 Habits to quit this Ramadan

Published

Ramadan-Kareem

Everything changes during Ramadan; working hours, eating diets, our own habits and lifestyle. We have been seeing the same habits and mistakes over and over each Ramadan.

Here are 4 habits you need to stop doing during Ramadan:

Being Too Angry:

Fasting shouldn’t be an excuse for throwing a tantrum anywhere during the day. On the contrary, fasting is about controlling yourself, not letting your hunger and thirst take over your human morals. Threatening others that you will fast because of something you don’t please is getting childish. Fasting is controlling your hunger, thirst and attitude.

Eating too much:

Fasting is not easy, specially the last few hours before Iftar and you feel like you are about to die out of hunger. Extreme hunger can lead to eat way too much from Iftar to Sohour, not keeping in mind the health risks you put yourself through; never mind the fact that excessive eating goes against what the holy month is all about. Also, your body is not capable of saving up food or water for later, over eating and drinking won’t make it easier for you the next day.

Judging People:

Remember that you fast by your own choice; judging others because they don’t fast or they are from another religion who happen to eat or drink in the straight isn’t very mature. You fast for spiritual and religious reasons; shaming others isn’t spiritual nor religious.

Unproductivity:

Although we get less working hours during Ramadan, some people remain unproductive. Fasting was never an excuse to procrastinate during your day; being productive is actually a part of the ritual. Try to create a routine for yourself during the day to be as productive as you can; make time for work, prayers and TV shows.

Don’t use fasting as an excuse for anything negative; it is the holy month, so make the best of it.

Happy Ramadan

All the students need to travel is a proof of their scholarship from the Ministry of Education, Saudi Arabia’s General Directorate of Passports announced on Monday

This clarification comes after a number of reforms have been announced in a royal decree last month, first giving the right for every Saudi citizen to obtain a passport, for Saudi women to travel without permission from a male guardian and now this.

The royal decree has been certainly welcomed and found to be a huge step towards attaining the 2030 vision, that ensures a better quality of life for citizens.

Saudi Arabia Lifts Travel Restrictions on Women

Published

Saudi women no longer require a permission from a “male guardian” to travel or obtain a passport and can now travel independently, a royal decree signed by King Salman bin Abdulaziz indicated,

The decree, which was issued three days ago, clearly states that women like any other individual have the right of obtaining a passport, and that a guardian’s approval will only be needed for minors.

The statement of the decree is written in a gender-neutral way and doesn’t in any way put restrictions to a specific segment.

Here’s how some of the prominent Saudi figures reacted to the change, and their thoughts about it that was shared on twitter.

Also hailing the changes is of course Saudi ambassador to the US Reema bint Bandar Al Saud.

Ever since the Saudi Vision 2030 was launched and the Saudi authorities have been addressing the flaws in the system that stand against women living their lives freely and securely.

Such a step is considered to be yet another major change, that follows the issuing of driving licenses to women, and the inclusion of women in the consultative council.
