Is a race against time for us to perform as much ibadah as possible during this blessed month for time has never been on our side. It's up to us to make use of this opportunity. Hopefully this year of Ramadhan is better than the past years of Ramadhan, insyaAllah. Since the first Ramadhan, we have been breaking our fast with kanji or this kind of savoury porridge.
