Some faces you might know who might be fasting this month
Warning on two fronts-it’s long at just over 17 min and there is an Arabic version of Alleluia playing in the background.
The Youtube title of ‘converts’ is also not entirely accurate as some of the people were born into the faith. But I think what it’s trying to achieve is letting people know that Islam is broad and not limited to a specific kind of person or culture or mindset. I have put this up on my blog primarily to help bring about a greater understanding of why Muslims fast during the month of Ramadhan and also to show to those keen to understand that it’s not just people from within closed, foreign or immigrant communities that do it-but lots of people from all walks of life. I am not saying everyone on this video follows the faith in the same way or those that were born into it are adherent at all-but they belong to families who do and what they have in their hearts and minds between themselves and God – well that’s for them to keep and not for me to pry.
