كل عام و انتم باالف خير
Surat Al Baqarah verse 185:
شهر رمضان الذي أنزل فيه القرآن هدى للناس وبينات من الهدى والفرقان فمن شهد منكم الشهر فليصمه ومن كان مريضا أو على سفر فعدة
من أيام أخر يريد الله بكم اليسر ولا يريد بكم العسر ولتكملوا العدة ولتكبروا الله على ما هداكم ولعلكم تشكرون
The month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed, a guidance to men and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein, and whoever is sick or upon a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty, and (He desires) that you should complete the number and that you should exalt the greatness of Allah for His having guided you and that you may give thanks.
A hadith about the month of ramadan:
اوله رحمة اوسطه مغفرة آخره عتق من النار
The beginning of Ramadan is full of mercy, the middle of Ramadan is full of forgiveness and the end of Ramadan is the refuge from Hell Fire.
A great duaa to read everyday of Ramadan after isha prayers is Dua' al-iftitah (دعاء الافتتاح).
May Allah bless you all in this glorious month of mercy.

SO i made a promise and here I am posting the pictures of my trip to Europe (Holland, Germany, Belgium) :D
Through the window of the airplane, my adventure has just started :
The sun is starting to set...or maybe rise?
All the way up in the clouds thinking about blogger friends (see I think about ya'll even when I'm all the way up there :D)
And FINALLY FINALLY after long hours and many transits we start to land!! LAND HO!!
SO here goes, my collection of photos in Netherlands:
The houses and the round-about :D
THE HUGE LOOMING CHURCH
Uitgezonderd is bike lane exit I think.
The beautiful bay
The horse carriage taking you for a tour around the Queen's old palace (turned into a museaum)
The beautiful Gardens
Full view of the museaum/palace
On our way to AMSTERDAM!
The cool bridge
And because I have a soccer fanatic brother, we went to see the Ajax Stadium
Came back to the village/city I was residing in.
It rained so hard it was like a mini-flood, the cars could barely drive
A city called Zutphen in Holland (it's like where tourists go to visit)
Another shot of the beautiful bay we had picnics at
On the way to Brussels, BELGIUM!
Pretty buildings and scenery (the spoke french there)
I think this is in Bocholt, Germany
Beautiful building, looks like the picture on a postcard doesn't it?
The stores in Germany
Hot air balloon taken from the balcony In Holland
I guess not alot of people get the chance to see a rainbow in Holland, I'm one of those luck ones :D
Hope you enjoyed it!
Wa alsalmou alaikom wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
