Are you fasting?

Alhamdulilah sudah 10 hari kita berpuasa!

Saya berazam to be productive walaupon sedang berpuasa. Only me Muslim at my workplace. Saya nak tunjukkan bahawa puasa itu tak menyusahkan. 
So i work as usual  sehingga my colleagues pon tak tahu bulan puasa da mula. Baru semalam dia tanya;

Colleague1: Are you fasting today? Only Malay fast right?
Me: Yes im fasting but not only Malay. All Muslims fasts during month of Ramadan.
Colleague1: Oh. I just realise it when i met my client.
Me: Ya. We started fasting since last week Wednesday.
Colleague1: You dont feel hungry? You look normal.
Me: So far im good. It is all in the mind.
Colleague1: But i think it is impossible that you cant eat or drink. You should at least allowed to drink water.
Me: Well we have been doing it since so long and it is Possible.
Colleague1: Interesting but im sure i cant.
Me: Anyways, Muslims fast not just for hunger and thirst but also to control our emotions, cleanse our hearts,  avoid things that is not allowed and to seek forgiveness.
Colleague1: *smiles*

So i pon senyum jugak. Tak nak panjang2.

I pon terharu bila mereka nak makan dalam ofis mereka akan minta maaf lebih dahulu kerana saya akan lihat dan bau makanan. Saya tak kisah. Tapi at least mereka ni ada juga la rasa thoughtful. hehehs.

Saya rasa pada zaman sekarang ni, we muslims have to try harder to show good example about our religion and pratices agar mereka lebih memahami dan tak memikir yang tak bukan2. Insya Allah ;)
