Ramadan - the most precious month for Muslim . The month which helps purification of soul with the purification of body too . Fasting in Ramadan is not only avoiding foods till dusk , but the fasting requires controlling of negative emotions and evil thought .
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"Allah has no need for the hunger and the thirst of the person who does not restrain himself from telling lies and acting on them even while observing the fast."
Ramadan has so many sweet memories in my life . Back home , when was a kid , it's more like feasting than fasting !! Those colorful , varieties of food at the time of iftar , sharing foods with neighbors and the poor people was something of tremendous joy to every kids . My Dad often used to buy our favorite Shuti kebab and sheekh kebab from the famous Old Dhaka Iftar selling point - Chowk Bazar !! Kebab was really our favorite dish . Still now it is . But now as a Mom of two and being a patient of some abdominal disorder , I always focus on something healthy for iftar , not so spicy yet flavorful . I'm sharing today my favorite Lebanese Kebab Shish Tawok with you all !!!
