Ramadan Mubarak!

Ramadan Mubarak!

It's that time of year again! We wish you all a very happy and blessed month of Ramadan.

For those of you who are not familiar with Ramadan, it is a month on the Lunar calendar in which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. And by fasting I mean no food and no drinks. Some people tend to be surprised when they realize we can't drink anything, not even water, during our fast.

This month means more to us than just losing weight. By fasting we get a sense of empathy with those who are suffering without food and water all around the world, whether it be a third world country or right here in the States. Also during this blessed month, we get a chance to get more spiritual and really appreciate what God has given us. We get a chance to realize the mistakes we have made and ask for forgiveness for all the sins that we committed as human beings. During this month, Satan is locked away so we cannot blame him for our wrongdoings. In this month's time, we can try to be the best human beings possible and continue our good deeds and actions even after this month is over.

Well, I should probably stop the rambling here. Hope you got something out of this post.

Until next time.
