Sheriff, my barber is a Muslim. Last year, during the Ramadan Fast, I had gone to get a haircut, and I met him, whom I know to be a chubby man, looking very skinny. I asked, “Oga, what is it? Are you fine? You look pale,” and he replied, “I don slim abi? We dey fast.” I didn’t want to push forward, so I let it go.
You should know that fasting isn’t a fit fam or skinny girl-in-transit mission. During the sacred month of Ramadan, Muslims have very little time to obtain enough energy and nutrients, as they abstain from all food and drink for over 12 hours a day. Fast observers must take advantage of the two meals allowed daily; Sahur and Iftar.
This is the first meal before dawn and a vital part of the fast. As a Muslim, you have to eat an adequate healthy meal at the time of Sahur to remain in good health for the rest of the day during the fast. Never skip sahur because those who do, may find it hard to complete their fasting and end up breaking it before iftar.
Iftar is the breaking of the fast after sunset. Performing iftar is an act that brings blessings. It is considered a great act of kindness to make arrangements for others’ iftar.
Allah will open his arm of forgiveness to those who help people who are fasting in acquiring proper iftar to break their fast.
