Writing Challenge: Day 19

Fasting in Islam is the act of totally abstaining from eating, drinking and other things from sunrise to sunset. That's currently about 15 hours in Jordan 😃
Fasting also exists in other religions such as Christianity and Judaism but with different conditions.

Fasting is mandatory in the month of Ramadan which is the ninth month of the Islamic year (Hijri), but we can fast on other days voluntarily.
To know when the month begins in the Islamic year, we must observe the moon. When the crescent is visible, this means that the month started.

The fast ends after 30 days and we celebrate Eid al Fitr (festival of breaking the fast) this year on May 13th for 3 days:

I love fasting because it makes me feel with the poor. You probably think that fasting for 15 hours a day is difficult but it is not, especially if you think about the poor who are hungry most of the time.

I also like the feeling of giving to the less fortunate all year long, but these days it's more special to give and do charity 🌛

Happy and Blessed Ramadan to all! 🍀

I love fasting because it makes me feelempathize with the poor.

or “feel empathy with”, or rephrase another way, but “feel with the poor” sounds odd.
