Ramadan lasts a month and everyday muslims have to wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning, pray all day, go till 6 oclock in the evening without a single
sip of water and you will see why its worth it.
As a christian living in a muslim country, i try to respect the laws of ramadan aside from the fact that the government has said that any one caught
eating or smoking out in public will be punished, including expatriates.
Funny enough first day of ramadan and on my way to work this morning as we here on the radio about the punishment for offenders, there was a
construction worker vamping his water bottle on the side of the road, hopefully he didn't get caught, but it was so coincidental.
They say that it is good to fast because it helps detox your body and because you mainly drink water you become more healthy and lose weight. Only bad
thing is they stuff themselves at 6 but your body will cling on to more of the fat from the food you last ate as your body couldn't cope with the lack
of energy, so it takes more or something like that
One of the down falls of not eating for such a long period of time is that over here in Dubai, ramadan is the most likely time of the month for there
to be more car accidents, as people cant think straight because they haven't eaten or they are rushing home in a hurry to eat and there are many other
reasons concerning food.
i suggest you give it a try and see for yourself, ive tried it before and failed but i use to have an eating disorder where i couldn't stop eating,
just loved food to much to let it go lol but now i have conquered that demon, i may give it another go.
Ramadan Kareem to any muslims
