The blessed month of Ramadan is expected to begin on or around August 1 and will finish on or around August 29. Muslims are excited!
I even know many non-Muslims planning to fast along with us in the spirit of unity. Some will be fasting for the first time and also reading the beautiful Holy Qur’an which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Every time Ramadan comes around, a few Believers and I discuss ways to “bottle up” this spirit we feel over these 30 days and carry it over into the other 11 months on the calendar.
To someone who is observing Ramadan for the first time, it’s easy to get caught up on not eating and drinking. Your stomach seems to be growling every second and your mouth is as dry as the Arabian Desert. With the extreme heat hitting the country right now, it may seem even more difficult to fast but it can be done.
Believe me, I know the feeling!
