As many will know for Muslims Ramadan is a time of both spiritual and physical rejuvination. One is expected to forego food and drink to harness ones mind and energy to the complete submissions of ones faith. It is not a hardship and is certainly a discipline that is easily mastered. The beauty of incorporating the disciplines of Ramadan into ones everyday life, responsibilties and commitments are a wonderful example of Islams very specific features - being not just a religion, but a way of life.
Well here's wishing all those who partake in Ramadan a very happy, peaceful and blessed month!
On a more 'blog-relevant 'note - the end of Ramadan is usually celebrated by eating of plenty of nice food, visiting friends, family and relations and ALL dressing up in nice new clothes. I always take the view that the clothes being new is a little like a pleasant reward to oneself at the end of a month of fasting, praying and being nicer and more considerate to ones fellow man - whilst getting close to ones maker.
Anwyay, hope to post a few ideas for gents who may be looking to get some new attire!
RM to all!
