Entering Ramzan with pure intentions is a pre-requisite to celebrate and derive the most benefits from the month. While everyone is busy with improving their spiritual activities in the month, our mother’s continue to serve the entire families either by directly getting involved in the kitchen and preparing Sehri and Iftar or indirectly by delegating tasks to the kitchen staff.
Being on our best behavior is a given but overlooking the effort of our mothers in ensuring that we stay consistent with our behavior is something we easily skip. We’ve said it before and we say it again, helping in the kitchen is not a certain gender’s job. Helping is human not feminine or masculine. Helping mothers in the kitchen during Ramzan can be a great way to show your love and support for them, while also contributing to the spirit of the month.
We’ve listed a few things that can make it easy for our Mamas!
During Ramadan, many households prepare special meals at Iftar, which means there may be more grocery shopping to do than usual. Offer to help with the grocery shopping or even do it for your mother.
Cooking can be a time-consuming task, especially during Ramzan when meals need to be prepared before Maghrib. Offer to assist your mother with meal preparation, such as chopping fruits for the fruit chaat, marinating the pakoras, or setting the table. I personally never let my Mother make the drink for Iftaar, it’s my job and let’s her have something off her to-do-list.
