Saum Maqbul

To all our Muslim Brothers and Sisters who started the holy month of Ramadhan yesterday, SAUM MAQBUL.

‘Fasting enhances through creation of artificial non-availability, the value of the bounties of God which man often takes for granted. This inculcates in man a spirit of gratitude and consequent devotion to God. Nothing else can bring home to a man the worth of God’s bounties than a glass of water and a square meal after a day long fast. This also reminds man that the real joy in enjoying God’s bounties lies in moderation and restraint and not in over indulging’ - Marhum Ahmed Sheriff Dewji

More about fasting and the Holy month of Ramadhan.

BP have a blessed month. So far you're the only one I'm sure is a muslim here.

On a lighter note, we are all enjoying because coastal cooking is now at it's very best. Never mind that most of our favorite restaurants are closed for the day but still when they open in the evenings the delicacies are double. Some very good foodstuffs which they don't sell in normal circumstances are now in plenty. Jana I went home with Vibibi and someone who did not know Ramadhan had started exclaimed - Ramadhani imeanza!

Fixated long time! Thanks.
