Here it comes, my Ramadni Rant
Why is it that everyone who doesn't fast expects everyone in Ramadan to be lazy and not doing their Job -because- of Ramadan?
Like we "set the universal standards" on employee efficiency in other months of the year!
Then comes the idiots who think everyone is "faking" it. Or have been partying year round, drinking and what up-to the last night of Ramadan. As an added bonus, just to show how ignorant they are, they would start issuing "fatwas" on how other people's fasting is not acceptable! What the ....?
No one, has the right to tell anyone that their fasting is not counted..
No one! Specifically someone who is not fasting!
And before someone tells me how "easy" fasting is for us, and how it's nothing compared to the hardships of the Sahaba in the time of the prophet, and how we spend most of our days sleeping. I would really appreciate it if we didn't generalize our own short-comings while projecting them onto others.
I know people who started their days with the sohor, worked until Maghrib. Not only that but did a fantastic job.
If you're not fasting, it's ok. Just don't go around bashing people who are. I don't need to feel guilty for fasting, it's really my business.
Here in the west, where people don't even care, they still however show understanding and courtesy. I didn't tell anyone that I'm fasting until I was invited to coffee or lunch. That's the only reason I told people, and they understood. Unlike certain people, who ought to know
Anyway, enough ranting, enjoy what's left of this amazing month.
