and the committees Best regards to all the participants and my beloved brothers and sisters Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and the most Gracious All praises be to Allah SWT, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this Universe. Peace and Salutation be upon our prophet Muhammad SAW, who has brought us from the darkness into the brightness and guided us into the right way of life. Ladies and Gentlemen, In this good opportunity, I would like to deliver a speech entitled “Ramadhan: the Islamic Month of Fasting”. Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting in which Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, and bad attitudes from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. Ramadhan is a time for Muslims to fast for the sake of Allah SWT and to offer more prayer than usual. During Ramadhan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and also try to purify themselves through self-controls. Brothers and Sisters, In our country, Ramadhan is not only a fasting month but also a special moment in our society. Many people cheer up Ramadhan with certain ceremonies, such us making cakes and visiting among the family’s members to ask forgiveness. It means that Ramadhan has become a part of our cultures. In our education activity, the teaching learning process in school during Ramadhan is usually fulfilled with the activities related with the religion. An example of this activity is Ramadhan Boarding School or known as “Pondok Ramadhan”. The main purpose of Pondok Ramadhan is to increase the faithfulness of the students towards Islam. It usually involves the teaching of the Islamic concepts and how to be good Muslims. Ladies and Gentlemen, As Muslims, what should we do in this Holy Ramadhan? In my points of view, there are at least four main activities that we should do. The first one is fasting. A good fasting is not only how to refrain from eating and drinking but also how to control ourselves from bad behaviors. The second is reading Qur’an. We all know, Qur’an is the revelation from our God. It contains the guidance of life. By reading Qur’an, we will get blessing and be able to face this life. The third, we carry out special prayers, called “Tarawih”, which are held in the mosques every night of the Ramadhan month. The last, we ask forgiveness to our parents, families and friends. This activity is known as “silaturrahim”, which means taking care of good relationships among the Muslims. Ladies and Gentlemen; Brothers and Sisters, I think that’s all my speech. I hope this speech will be useful for us. Thank you very much for your attention.

that is. ladies and gentlemen? Of course for the magician. Or some people are at a loss as to how to make themselves relaxed. As you know. We also need some time to put everything aside. And as a saying goes. and feel stress again. working hard without taking a rest is often considered to be a great virtue. Although they'd like to be relaxed and happy. In Japan. to live a really happy life. they make their own situations worse by being critical of everything even when relaxing. and watch. and that's why they can't relax and be happy. But after all everybody needs fantasy somewhere deep inside. They also feel uneasy on the job. The first group of people try to enjoy the illusion. or have no interest in magic at all. —I'm happy to tell you— you are a group 1 person already. when recommended to try something new. They accept the fantasy of magic. which are considered to be a disease caused by stress. (I make the flower appear. Many of us seek out the ways to alleviate the stress. Today. you can make it reappear!" I couldn't believe my eyes. escape our routine. I'd like to discuss how the fantasy of magic can create a more pleasant life. They are cheerful. I myself came to realize how good it is to be a group 1 person through my magic. They either persist in finding out the secrets of the trick. and therefore they don't enjoy the experience. and naturally relaxed. She did this: (performing) "Hey kids. "I need some time to unwind. And this experience inspired me to start learning magic. however. We enjoy them only by trying to believe the story. but I stand here just to remind you of one thing.) "It's time to smell the flowers!" And if you totally enjoyed my speech and magic. the first group of people enjoy everything. "Is this going to be fun?" or "Isn't that a waste of time?" And after that.) That is. If we can fully appreciate our leisure time. 'abracadabra'. The second group of people don't distinguish the fantasy of magic from the world of reality. but it's not everything. which type are you. always thinking they are too busy. That was when I first watched magic. "Everybody loves magicians. Movies are a good example." I believe magic is one of the best ways to have fun and relax. Let me explain. I'd better devote myself to my job. what is your response when you see a trick like this? Through my experience as a magician. Now. So I'd like to finish my speech by showing you some of my favorite tricks. thinking. I push this blue handkerchief into my hand. I think people of group 2 lack the spirit of having fun. Now. I'm not here today for my magic show. look at this handkerchief. instead of taking you to the mysterious world of magic. (It immediately changes into a cane. it is important to be diligent. "Oh. do we enjoy them when we are critical of the storyline? Do we enjoy them when we have doubt in our minds? The answer is definitely "No". they worry. Instead they feel they are cheated by the magician. Of course. they feel uneasy again. For example. Actually we are living in a very busy society and there are even children who suffer from stomach ulcers." In spite of this when it comes to their free time." Of course. by trying to feel as if we are on the screen. However. I think the people of group 2 are at a disadvantage because I have a feeling that this attitude has something to do with one of our current problems. many of us are under increasing amounts of stress these days.EVERYBODY NEEDS FANTASY Ladies and gentlemen. and just relax. and the essence of relaxation is the spirit of having fun. when I was a little kid. 'stress'. "I shouldn't have done that!". and the stories in most movies would hardly ever come true in our daily life. it might depend on one's character or the life situation wbecome the perfect group 1 people. it's not the time to amuse myself. they complain. we are refreshed. (I show the audience a handkerchief) Well. There are so many kinds of movies. For instance. On the other hand the second group of people never leave the world of reality and often try to find fault with everything. Congratulations! . I've found that there are mainly two different types of reactions when people see magic. the first group of people makes the most desirable audience. and try to believe what is going on in front of their eyes. But I think whether we suffer from stress or not depends largely on our attitude. and their free time is spent just lying in front of TV all day. It's gone! But if you say a magic word. do you remember the first time you saw magic? Well. But in today's busy society. and can concentrate on our jobs once again. my kindergarten teacher showed me a trick. mostly wasting time. So let's take the opportunity to escape with a spirit of having fun.
