You’ve certainly heard about that special moth of the year where moslem use to stop eating, and certainly told your self “Those peapole are stpupid !!”, in fact Ramadan is a holy month in the Hijri calender (year 1426) based in the moon mutation cycle, rather than a mathematical logical cycle, in ramadan moslem use to fast (sawm) wich is to stop eating from the sunshine till the sunrise, and when I say stop eating it’s obivious about anything that can get swallowed including drinks, cigarettes, vulgarity , sex , kisses, and lies.
The fasting is some kind of body control, or just some kind of Yoga where you masters your body by rejecting all the external elements of your body making your soul more and more powerfull, some kind of purity process that last a whole day, if you can resist a whole day with no food, smoking and sex, you’ll certainly rediscover the real you, you’ll touch touch your soul as deeper as you won’t imagine.
I practice fasting myself sometimes -Althrough atheist- to get it’s benificts, I do it with all the conditions wanted, most of the peapole stop eating, but start hallucinating ling, and doing bad on others … and so their fasting is totally false,anyone can fast once and try how much he can resist if ever he encounter a disatser where no food and no water is foundable, or if he have to get in beauty gils school without haveing the desire toi touch them … you know some trainig is wonderfull … try to fast a half day and you’ll certainly got better !
Me and my fren walid were all ok about ramadan, we’ve got all the options on the table (I like this sentense), we’ve done everything ourselves and for the first day of ramadan (15 days ago) we’ve cook a chorba (a soup based on cerals), dates with butter, some milk, … just take a look at our table !
The table was ready before the sunrise heard through the Maghreb prayer call, at when the Lfayette streets where totally empty while in the other it used to be so crowded.
Happy ramadan to you !
