I will try to give out more freebies during this festive month!

However....I know some of my watchers are wondering what Ramadan is, so I going to explain it to them.


Don't worry, I'm not going to brainwash you all. I know many people aren't religious but this is my belief and I don't ask you to believe the same, but I believe it is important to understand the different cultures and beliefs of other people.  

Ignorance will only lead to more ignorance. It's not until we learn from each that we can understand each other. As it is normal for humans to fear things from a lack of understanding.

So this will be a quick explanation for those who have never heard of it.

Ramadan is the month in which all the eligible Muslims are encouraged to fast from food, drink, abusive language and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured. 

Eligible means men and women who are over the age of about 7, are not sick, or travelling, or in women's instance have their menstrual cycle or in some cases breast feeding.

Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. We try to purify ourselves through self-restraint and good deeds. 

Among the other benefits is that we can understand the hardships of poor people, we shed extra weight, and clean out the system of pollutants. 

One thing I really like about Ramadan is the entire atmosphere around it.  It's a time of solidarity and sharing food, especially when we break our fasts. We visit each other more often and go to the mosque to pray for many hours.

We are told that fasting is the highest form of worship since only God really knows if you are being true to it or not. You can fool other people or cheat, but then you are only starving yourself. It's only if you're honest and really try, you reap tremendous rewards. When you see different kinds of people, from different backgrounds, races, ages, and all of them fasting worldwide, you can't help but feel a brotherhood. Since we are all doing it together.

So to one and all I wish you a Blessed Ramadan, and even encourage non Muslims to try fasting and see how it's like, its a great was to break addictions and bad habits.

Well…thank you for reading this and I hope that has been useful. :nod:
