A Day in My Life: Ramadan Edition

Throughout Ramadan, there are a few nights when we choose to break our fasts and eat iftar with our extended family and/or friends. On this particular night, we got together with the paternal side of my family, who we hadn’t seen in a couple of months because of COVID. Having iftar with larger groups of people is arguably my favorite aspect of the month, not only because I can finally eat but also because I get to spend time with my loved ones, converse with them, and simply enjoy their company.

Every year, millions of Muslims around the world, including myself, observe what is considered to be the most sacred month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan. In this month, we abstain from eating food and drinking water beginning at the break of dawn until sunset. Along with the task of fasting, Muslims put in the effort to grow their spiritual connection to Islam, build stronger relationships with God, and improve upon bad habits practiced in our day-to-day lives. 

In this photo montage, I take you through what a typical day in my life looks like during the month of Ramadan: what I do, what I eat, and more.
