The ninth month of the Muslim year during which strict fasting is observed from sunrise to sunset everyday for the month.
Participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, and sexual activities from sunrise to sunset.
The act of fasting is to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, to cleanse the inner soul. It teaches self discipline, self control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate, encouraging generosity and charity.
In addition to fasting, Muslims are encouraged to read the entire Qur’an.

Ramadan in Jerusalem. Day 1.

I like this video. It makes me miss it all so much.
I wish I were still there.
I love that place and all the good people you can find.
