Thank you for your lovely post. I work with several persons of your faith. I'm always interested in discussing different customs with them. I have enjoyed many of their foods which they have brought into work at other times of year. yummy. <br><br>

Thanks for the nice thread. Walzuhair allow me to bring up an issue that I always wanted to know a muslims opinion on, but was afraid to ask. Is it true that when breaking the fast and throughout the night one shoudn't eat too much and shouldn't make up for the whole day of fasting. I heard that the whole point of fasting is to feel how the poor people live and experince lack of food and water, so that after Ramadan one can be more compassionate towards the one in need.<br><br>That's not happening, at least not in Bahrain. Actually it's the opposite. Lot of people put up wheight during Ramadan, which is topped with 3 days of Eid.<br><br>This should be a major concern, because as I know (practicing natural bodybuilding) when you're hungry for longer period of time a substance called Cortisol develops in the body. Cortisol is responsible to build up fat when the body gets to a source of food. This system has developed back when we were cavemans (i know muslims don't beleive in Darwin's theory) and the body had to be protected against possible famines. Basically what I'm saying is that during the day the fasting person develops Cortisol, and during the night it will make our body lay down energy supplies (fat) from the food which is not going to used up, because of continous supply of food during the night.<br><br>By the way, although I brought up this issue, I do enjoy the tempting Ramadan tents with Sisha (water pipe) and calming fun atmosphere. I'm only concerned about people's health.<br><br>http://raszl.net

That’s all 100% correct iraszl. You captured the main goal of Ramadan, feeling how blessed we are with goodies compared to many other unfortunate people.<br><br>Unfortunately, healthy eating habits are not very well known to many people in the world. Among the bad habits of Ramadan is the change in sleeping habits, the majority stay awake till dawn prayers and then sleep throughout the day waiting for sunset. I remember we had visitors a couple of years ago that came in past midnight for a social visit and they were shocked when I told them to come back in the morning when we’re not sleeping <br><br>Shisha (water pipe) is another bad smoking habit that has nothing to do with Ramadan , but they decorate tents in Arabic mosaic and calligraphy that make it seem related <br><br>
