Ramadan - Month of Compassion
If you visit a Muslim country anywhere in the world during the fasting month of Ramadan, you will encounter a different mood and experience that will linger in your memory forever. The flavor of Ramadan is easily palpable, and the social rules change. Few people will be seen smoking in public, as a set of unwritten laws begins to take over society. In Ramadan, people tend to sacrifice their desires for the sake of obeying God’s orders, a period also referred to as the month of the “divine feast.”
