Ramadan is a holy month for those who follow Islam. During this time, many are expected to fast from sunrise to sunset and by doing so, learn self-discipline, patience, and empathy for those less fortunate.
I tend to fast all 30 days just because I want to feel more connected to my Religion. Being in Canada, it is hard to always follow your Religion, especially when the practices are so different from the Canadian Society.
However, I am fairly religious and spend most of my Ramadan in the Islamic Mosque next to my house to learn more about my Religion.
I want to form a good base in my religious aspects in life before I begin my own family. Taking part in this religious month will enable me to continue observing this month even when I am not in my current household.
