Watermelons are not only a refreshing way to break your fast during Ramadan, but provide you with a boost of vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, B and B6. It also contains the highest concentration of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that is known to fight heart disease and several types of cancer. Watermelons also are a great source of potassium that help maintain a proper electrolyte and acid-base balance, perfect for rehydrating after fasting. This summer put down the deep-fried sugary sweets and grab a slice of refreshing watermelon instead.

The “Alhamdulillah Series” was inspired by Ruzky Aliyar who featured a series of nature images with the tagline “Alhamdulillah”. The series was profiled on Muslim Matters during the Winter of 2012 and quickly drew praise for the simplicity of the message. Building upon this effort to remember the many blessings of Allah, Khaleafa.com has picked up the initiative and will continue to highlight the many signs of Allah.
“There truly are signs in this for people who reflect.” (Quran 13:3)
