Happy Ramadan to all Muslim members of TRF, and also all the other members around here :jmp::jmp::jmp:

It is not officially confirmed when yet, but it might be either sunday, or monday...

well this year will be the begining of tough fasting periods, (depending on country location i guess) as Ramdan is starting in the summer period where days are very long before sunset.
For example, here in Lebanon we have to fast from about 4:30 am up till about 7:40 pm... :yik:

Yeah, it is a big pressure and a test i am ready to take :o :)

Cheers

The word 'ramadan' always make me hungry, which is quite ironic.

And who said that next year's Ramadhan will be in August! :yik:

I was creating my very long thread, but you went first :o:(.

Anyway here are the main clues I wanted to mention :

Ramadan is a period of 30 days in which muslims should not eat or drink from the twilight until the sunset, and should not do several other things as well.

-Ramadan started yesterday in some countries (such as Libya)

-Today in most countries (Europe, USA, Middle East, some countries in North Africa)

-Tomorrow for Morocco


In Ramadan, we have from one to three meals per day. Most of people have all of them, some have have two (like me) and a part settle for one meal only (especially very poor people or very busy people) , however they can get something quickly like dates or drink something.

The three meals are :

-Ftour (means breakfast) : which we have right after the Al-Maghrib Adane (sunset)

-Al-Ichaa (means dinner) : a common meal we have before going to sleep.

-Al Ss-hour : in this one, you have to wake up just before the sunup in order to eat something and get ready for the new day.

Personally, I only have the ftour and Ichaa, because It's too hard to wake up at night and eat :o

How about muslims in here ? Can you tell us about your experience ? How it goes like in your country ? :)

but before anyone starts ....



HAPPY RAMADAN !

I'm not really that hasty about losing waight (1.85m/70 kg) :p
So, I happen to undergo damages every Ramadan.
I don't gain that much weigh easily but I grow skinny right after a little change in my nutrition regime.

Don't care about what people say and don't control your appetite just to please them :hug: Ramadan is a way to worship, not to lose weight (although it can be used it for both actually :p).

PS. A good way to lose weight in the face is to chew gums, coz it makes the facial muscles work and not look chubby anymore, try it.

Right

And I just don't know why people have this idea in their mind, common, people might also gain weight while the month, don't you realise that we eat almost (if it is not more) all what we eat during a normal day ?

I never had the courage to watch one of these shows! I just can't stand them. They have as much horror value as the Saw movies, if you ask me. xD
Fortunately, and thank God, mother isn't a fan of 'em - she seldom sit there and take a watch over their acting, which I find fraudulently hoity-toity; the only thing we might yap about is her Chmicha show; Way more info laid out than those pesky shows. :D
