jab roza lag raha ho! – Fasting in Ramzan

Another quick question for all of you. What you guys do jab roza lag raha ho :o)? When you are fasting in Ramzan (or Ramadhan) and two hours before the Iftar you really get hungry and thirsty. What is the best option to kill time :D.

Oh and how true is that fasting affects our working capacity by any means? What’s your expereicne.

    If at home, go to sleep. If at work stop thinking about it and get to work.

    Spare a thought for thousands of people who haven’t had anything to eat for 2 days! Just count yourself lucky that after 2 hours you will be able to eat some food.

    Go get your favorite pillow, curl up on the couch and take a 1 – 1.5 hr nap.

    haha, i know where you are coming from. calling useless meetings or playing games is appropriate under such circumstances :P

    but if at home, sleeping is the best thing to do.

    Engage yourself, in any activity and stop thinking about how much time’s left for Iftaar.

    When you will tell your brain its good for you overall, you will feel okay.

    Roza lagna hi asal maqsad hai, it teaches us so many things which most of us know.

    When at home, i do tasbeeh of La ilaha illallah, astaghfar and darood in last two hours sometimes in lawn while walking (chahal qadmi), sometimes while taking some rest and sometimes during frying fritters, in kitchen.

    When at work, i just concentrate on work and try to finish it before maghrib and rush to home. I never allowed “roza lagna” to overwhelm my thoughts.

    I never experianced any affect on my capacity of working during this month specially. My effeciency increases rather as i can use max hours of the day before sunset. This is the only month of a year which makes me get into a fixed routine:), and so i can use more daylight hours for the list of to-do things.

    i don’t think roza affect one’s working capacity. i actually end up finishing my things earlier than normal days in ramzan. but yes, i have seen people being extra lazy during ramzan so i guess it varies from person to person.

    i am interested if there has ever been a research on the subject and what does medical science say?

    Fasting not affecting working capacity, are you kidding? I classify myself as a caffeine addict who simply cannot survive without my morning and afternoon cup of chai/coffee/energy drink.

    i try to play computer games :D one game of Generals takes about 45 mins of the time :) or maybe watch spongebob square pants :D

    Watching a movie can do the trick very well!!

    I myself take caffiene in form of tea and coffee, but i experianced a little headache for one or two days due to change in routine of intake. Now its going smoothly :)

    Interestingly, roza makes us transform ourselves into a different person, which we are not the rest of year. Yes, its a training for ups and downs of our lives. Patience, Patience and Patience.

    I think, we should do something better, like taking a nap is better or helping your mom out!! movies tu ati jati rahtei hein.

    Its all in the head. I am a big fan of all kinds of food and I eat more than an average person of my age or size. I realise some people just have this in their head that they are feeling lazy and dieing and that rozah is affecting their mental or physical abilities. Its all in our heads. If we keep thinking about it, then we will have problem. If we are busy in our normal routine, work or play, I dont have any problems.

    For time killing, one of my favourite past time in my younger years was to indulge in countless hours of playing Counterstrike with my friends. Infact there is one occassion when we played it from after-sehri to before-maghrib only stopped to pray our namaz. Its fun ..

    Zikr, is a very good thing to do. Just sit on your bed, and start reading all the duas and Names of Allah and very soon you will feel like passing out. Just take a nap.

    i like to do things like gardening, cooking a meal that takes a long time or just watch DVDs of algerian comedy (that’s where i come from) to forget.
