Some people had been asking me the same question (with some modification for each person) since the first day of Ramadhan; “Are you fasting? Is it hard to fast there? Can you stand to fast there?” Well, sorry to dissapoint you all but I can only say; “I was fasting for the last 30 days. No, it wasn’t that hard. Yes, I can stand to fast while watching other eating their lunch”.

The truth is I found out that fasting here was not as hard as many people always told me. Well, maybe because I did it in the autumn when the day is shorter… or maybe because I just keep my faith and spirit up… or maybe because I just don’t care… to be honest, I don’t know. I am just doing the practice of my belief and that’s it, that’s all I care about.

Ramadhan is not all about ‘not eating’ only… is about cleaning yourself, be clear and consice about your existence in this particular life time. So the hardest part for me here in Germany while do the fasting is not about how to stand hunger or thirst but how to act and behave… And nobody ask me about that…

The keyword is Faith…
