Growing up in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Ramadan became the epitome of togetherness and community for me.

Some devout Muslims go into reclusion during those final days, spending all of their time in the mosque. The entire city came alive and alight. "It's challenging because there's misconceptions about the faith, but it's also rewarding because it keeps us on our toes to work with one another and explain to each other about our faith". Those observing refrain from food or drink from sun-up to sundown, with exceptions for age or health conditions, and break the day's fast with the iftar meal.

Ramadan is believed to be a time of intense spirituality when the believers are surrounded by angels, the gates of heaven are open, and Allah's blessings and mercy are abundant. "I love ramadan so i hope this doesn't ruin my experience because of stress and as for now i'm not sure if i am going to be keeping all my fasts either".

During Ramadan, Muslims have to abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn to sunset. If moon sighted, Shaban will end and Ramadan will begin from tomorrow, May 17.

Determining the first day of Ramadan always creates confusion among Muslims immigrants living in foreign countries, especially in Europe and the United States.

"I regularly fast, so numerous points are what I have learned along the way".

"Muslims who live in these smaller communities, you're more self-aware and more conscious of how you practice and share your faith with other people", Soltani said.

It's important to check in with yourself regularly.


Start by praying for God's will to be done during Ramadan. Check in with your body and nourish it with what it needs, not what it wants at that moment. Lauran and Haseeb will be cooking a kosher meal for us, and together we will break the fast with new friends and conversation.

Navigating work and social spaces where Muslims are a minority can be hard, particularly when people aren't aware and informed of your cultural practices.

"Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life", Trump wrote, pointing out the Constitution's enshrining the right to religious liberty. People can dine and learn about Ramadan or Islam in general.
