My favourite time of the year – Ramadan. A time when my family prays, cooks and eats together for 29-30 days. Ramadan is a month in the Islamic calendar where Muslims all over the world fast from dawn to dusk abstaining from food and water.
The end of the month is marked with a holiday, Eid Al-Fitr, with feasts and get togethers. After fasting for a month, Muslims also perform and/or donate to charity, the act of Zakat, recognizing that there are way too many people in this world starving on a daily basis.
So as Muslims all over the world celebrate Ramadan, there are some funny commonalities we all go through each day. Came across some funny articles that I had to share as humour is a great way to unify us.

“Wow. I don’t know how you do it. I know I couldn’t!”
It’s a good thing that I’m the one fasting and not you, then.
“Not even a tiny M&M? It’s so small, it doesn’t count!”
“OK, what if you faint? Can we give you water then?”
No. Let me die ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I hope these brought a chuckle to you as much as it did to me.
