I’ve got mad respect for anyone fasting for Ramadan this next month…especially those doing so whilst living in a refugee camp!
A couple of years ago I was in the Jungle camp during Ramadan and I asked one of my friends whether, under these conditions (where they were cold and hungry and struggling to survive as it was)…surely these were special circumstances during which they didnt need to fast.
He looked at me and said,
“Jaz…it’s during these difficult times that we must feel closer to God than ever. That is what will get me through.”
I’ve never forgotten his words and the incredible significance of Ramadan, and for that reason I say Ramadan Mubarak to you all!
