A special month by John Ridley (GDN, August 1) has brought to light what Ramadan is all about for people of all faiths.
It highlights the true spirit of Ramadan.
As he points out, Ramadan is the time when we pause, try to look around us and realise what we have been blessed with and less fortunate people are deprived of.
We get the sense to share and make others happy in the way of God. Fasting is also an excellent way of cleansing ourselves not only physically, as it gives our over-worked systems some rest, but also spiritually as we draw closer to our Creator by following what He has decreed upon us.
Very well written, Mr Ridley!
