I dont believe too many TLC members know about this: (Ramadan)

 

Wake up 2 hours before Fajr (pre-dawn) prayer:

For the mother in the house, this applies especially. The rest of the family should chip in, too. It´s recommended to wake up early to perform at least two units of night prayer before helping Mama set the table for Suhoor. The family should start eating at least 45 minutes before dawn, and should stop eating five minutes before dawn breaks. The last few minutes should be spent in rinsing the mouth and performing ablution in preparation for Fajr prayer.

Some Muslims automatically start eating even more when the end of Suhoor approaches - thinking, "this is my last chance to get as much food into myself as I can, before having to starve till sunset". The wise and moderate Muslims, however, know that fasting is not akin to starving the body. They maintain a moderation in eating Suhoor.

Other Muslims skip Suhoor altogether, since it necessitates waking up in the wee hours of the morning. They prefer to eat till well after midnight and sleep late, opting to relinquish Suhoor. This course of action is also not recommended. The best option is to sleep early after `Isha prayer, and awaken 2 hours before dawn, to get in some units of the night prayer (Qiyaam Al-Layl) in addition to a nutritious Suhoor meal.

Soak beans overnight in water.

Drain, and cover with fresh water in large saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer on low for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until beans are tender.

Drain and place in medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Beans and remaining ingredients can be mashed together, or the beans can be left whole and gently mixed with remaining ingredients. It is more commonly served mashed together.

Serve hot with a fried egg and pita bread.

 Also we add some yellow lentil and rice,tomato cut in half,1 garlic clove,half lemon ´as a whole not juice´

and also small onion and half of green pepper ´if you like tha taste´

İ like it this way,some people just put lentil and thats all

And before its done for a while,you remove the onion,pepper and lemon.

You take what you want and put in a dish add oil,olive if you like,salt,few lemon drops,and cut the fresh tomato in pieces along with others if you want and surve

 

And the rest  of the cooked beans you can put in a fridge box,you squeez the other half of lemon on it,so it cover its surface and doesnt lose its colour.
