The holiest month in the Muslim calendar is around the corner and, in a month’s time or so, Muslims the World over will be expected to observe a heightened scale of purity and supplication to Allah.
While fasting from dawn until sunset, Muslims typically refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in carnal relations.
They are also expected to refrain from sinful behavior that may negate the reward of fasting, such as false speech, violence, verbal attacks etc.
This is normally a glorious month that is famously said to have been the month when the Muslim Holy Book, the Quran, was handed to the religion’s Founder Prophet Muhammad.
Ramadan, as it is, tends to be observed with much seriousness and utmost solemnity but still, this should not be the reason why you should be all glum and blue all month.
Yeah, you could still fast, still pray, still observe the timetable and still show up looking like a snack for the Iftar snack. Ha! ha!
Best place to start is obviously with looking not just fabulous but also respectably so, right? I mean, you’re in the middle of a Holy Month and you cannot afford to show too much. Or be too much.
And what better than the good, old Maxi dress?? It’s refreshingly loose, comes in bright colors, great fabric, accentuates your womanhood and of course, won’t make you too uncomfortable at the Iftar table.
And what’s a good Maxi dress without the appropriate shoe to go with it? A shoe that adorns your feet like a Crown on a Princess? A shoe that will make a statement and still, won’t put off the Wazees?
This one should work best … And, if you can get one in Purple, the better.
I mean, It’s about royalty, no?
It’s a month when we not only show our best side to Allah but also to the people around us…And because they cannot read our hearts, I guess it helps that they can read our moves.
And we better make a clear statement while at it.
Happy Ramadhan! In advance!
