The 1st of September marks the beginning of the month of Ramadan for this year.
Ramadan was the month during which Prophet Muhammad received the first of the Koran's revelations. Therefore, it has been ordained as the holy month of fasting for all adults of the Islamic faith to cultivate piety. (Al-Baqara 2:185)
The fast begins each day at the break of dawn and ends at sunset.
During the fast, Muslims are forbidden to eat, drink, or smoke.
During the month of Ramadan, koko' is also going to attempt a fast.
Just like my Muslim friends, I will have my fast from dawn until dusk which is around 6am - 7.30pm every day.
However, there is one element I will not go without: water.
Unlike the Muslims who fast both solids and fluids, I will only fast solids because my body is not accustomed to fasting.
I dont want my body to break down because I overdid my fasting.
The purpose of my fast: detox & spiritual awakening.
Let's see how long I can last!
