I had today off which was good because I was extremely tired. More tired than I thought. I did get up early for suhoor and fajr, and exercise as well. But a few hours later, I was in bed and I slept until 1pm. I had intended to not sleep that long. I had some errands to run and ended up not getting them done.
But, it was another day of fasting, and reading the quran. I read through the part of the quran that talks about guarding one's modesty and lowering your gaze around the opposite gender. It's interesting that people like to mention about women wearing hijab and dressing appropriately.
The thing I found interesting is that the quran addresses men first. That men should guard their modesty and that they are to lower their gaze around women. In An-nur, verse 27:
"Enjoin the believing men to lower their gaze and guard their modesty..."
I broke my fast with lemonade and barbeque tonight. I wonder if I have the strangest iftars.
I have a second interview set for thursday night for the Singapore job. I am having second thoughts about it. The recruiter was telling me how it's very demanding, ie. I will have to work long hours.
Not sure if that's what I want. Oh well.
