A significant number of the world population will be fasting from sunup to sundown. Every day. For an entire month. It’s Ramadan, the holiest month of the Muslim calendar!
If you are not a Muslim, is there anything you should do so you don’t come across as insensitive to your fasting friends in Nigeria? Concise News helps you. So, find out with these tips!
1. You don’t have to fast with Muslims
You can if you want to see what it feels like. But it’s not going to hurt Muslims feelings – even if you are best friends with the Muslim.
2. You can join Muslims for Iftar
Iftar is the breaking of the fast after sundown. Muslims like to make it a big communal meal. You should come. Islam is love.
3. Muslims can still go for coffee with you…
No, they can’t drink. Not even water. But they’ll walk with you if you want to take a break.
4. You can say “Ramadan Mubarak”
Humanity is paramount. Send your greetings. Your Muslim co-worker will appreciate the thoughtfulness.
