! رمضان كريم = Happy Ramadhan !

the islamic month of fasting & contemplation started this morning ... (http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/7AE2FDF0-1D4D-409D-932F-E92ABF7317D2.htm)

really my favorite time of year, far preferable to the concentrated frenzy of Xmas excess
this year i shall be comtemplating giving up fags - Allah be merciful!

thanks sufi! thanks USER1000!

theres a super symmetry there.

we're 1 years old julian calender stylee on 12th October. but ramadan HAS to be a less prosaic marker.

peace and love to everyone (sheds tear)

just out of interest, who is actually muslim here? i'm guessing beware is.
i was in jordan for ramadan a few years back, staying with a muslim family. they said i could eat if i wanted to, me being an agnostic/recovering catholic/spiritual retard, but that would have been cruel, so i fasted.
to be honest, i found the massive amount of eating for breakfast and dinner alot harder than the lack of food during the day.
it was a pretty nice feeling by the end and you did actually tend to find yourself thinking of all sorts of other stuff to take your mind off being hungry. a pretty pleasantly reflective time.

how the assyrian community feel about the situation in the tigris/euphrates navel of civilisation at this time - as in order to escape the ravages of saddam they've mostly moved on to safer climes such as ealing as far as i know, & as i think they've mostly resigned themselves to not worrying whether they will ever even see assyria again but that's quite another matter... :(

Hey, it’s that merry time of the year again! Since I’m living with a guy from Syria (although he is unwavering about his actually being Palestinian, his parents having been exiled during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War) at the moment, I actually get to experience it first hand. Sadly, except for the calendar taped onto the refrigerator, stipulating at which time Allah deems it pious to eat, it’s pretty much business as usual and nowhere near the carnival of exoticness for which I was secretly hoping.
