As salamu aleykum
Yesterday, from sunrise until sunset, I fasted, and didn't swallow even the slightest trickle of food/water down my throat.
Throughout the day I felt a bit sickly as time went on, I felt tired, even the orthodontist said I looked half-asleep, and headaches on and off. Is this normal to feel this way in Ramadan?
This morning, I slept right through Fajr ACCIDENTALLY. I couldn't think last night. Yesterday I performed all five but last night after Isha'a I was so tired I didn't perform Tarawih and I went to sleep just after 12:30am, school starts too again this morning.
So when I got up this morning, as soon as I woke up, I got up and performed wudu and Fajr - so I made it up. I felt bad, I didn't mean to sleep through it
So what I did was I ate grapes and a date and dry cereal this morning as soon as I got up, even though the sun had risen 50 minutes before, it was Ramadan and I wasn't going to leave one day.
So tonight I'm going to break my fast as usual at sunset, insha'Allah, and then I'm going to perform Isha'a and then I'm going to be less tired, insha'Allah, because I will have eaten A LOT more than last night's sunset meal, let it settle, had my shower and then performed Isha'a so I will be ready to perform Tarawih as the final prayer of the day. I will eat dates and fruit and have a sit down and read the Qur'an or relax and think about my day for a little while before I perform Tarawih, insha'Allah.
Also, can anybody tell me how Tarawih works? ...
I mean: Each 2 raka'as, we sit for a little break, but then the next 2 raka'as, do we perform them like the first or like the 3rd and 4th raka'as of salaah and then start all over again?
