"Thought for the Day: Thursday 18th June 2015" (Re-Blogging Progressive Scotish Muslims)

Thought for the Day: Thursday 18th June 2015

"Even though [Ramadan] is a family and community based month, fasting is a singular act that is between the Muslim and God. In fact, the Qur'an makes clear that the act of hunger is solely to show submission and strengthen awareness of God. For me, a religious act should always be done willfully and my understanding of Islam is that it offers concessions to those who may find it difficult. I guess this is the spirit of the month of fasting. It comes with much to think about mentally and physically as we submit to God."
-Dr Amanullah De Sondy
