Ramadan is a yearly event in the Muslim calender where we fast between daylight hours, which means we do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. The fasting is a way to understand the effects of hunger and thirst so that we can empathise with the less fortunate. It is also the month where we concentrate a bit more on spiritual sides of things, reflect on the way we live. This is the month where we also donate 2.4% of our savings with the less fortunates. In Islam, we are told that God will take an inventory from us of our access spending, so a lot of Muslims buy their cars, clothes jewellery this month .......... as we are exempted. There is a feast at the end of the fasting month and this year it is on the sighting of the new moon in August. May God keep us all under his wing.
