Ramadan is a month of Muslims’ calendar which all adult Muslims who can have to fast from sunrise to sunset during this month. How they fast during the CoronaViros? Every year Ramadan enters with different weather. Therefore, the crisis is happing today is difficult. Comparing to the past years is hard by the way we became close to god, like going to the Mosque or reading the Quran with the family, but now we should have a social distance. However, the internet, social media helps a lot to be connecting with each other. This shows the COVID-19 teaches us as humans to use the internet for positive situations. For example, online classes, family meetings, and taking online lectures.
Comparing to five years ago Ramadan was during summer which making the person getting thirsty. Still, was my favorite as thirteen years old. I was in Yemen, every time after breaking the fast I and my brother go to pray at the Mosque at the top of the mountain in Taiz City. There was a big window with a view of the city the air was cool up there. After completing the prayer we go to get some ice cream, and this is every day during the month.
By the way during this experience, I feel the COID-19 crises make us think about moments we have done it before and think about it how free we were. The moment we enjoy it without giving it back or payback to our life. These moments have a story and we are learning from these stories.Tags: coronavirus COVID-19 Middle East Park Slope Collegiate yemen
