Ramadan has begun

Greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world in the observance of this holy month of Ramadan. The Muslim community will fast from dawn till dusk for the entire Ramadan month. I've always been fascinated and curious about the purpose of fasting for such a long period of time. Then I found the answers in this article enumerating 12 Reasons To Fast! Very admirable indeed.

  1. I agree with you Rochelle, very admirable indeed to be able to sustain fasting. it is like washing of our spirit.

  2. I love to learn about other religions, and customs. I understand the whole fasting thing, I just kind of think it is cruel.

  3. Very fascinating indeed. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. The photo was borrowed from a friend. :p

  4. Very interesting article. A great reminder to slow down and think of more spiritual things.
