“We stay physically apart but find unity in the rituals of fasting and feasting,” @Lattif writes of Ramadan during the coronavirus pandemic. “Things might be falling apart, but I have come to find comfort and continuity in the small things.” https://t.co/V5RNSQYFcM
@nytimes @Lattif I’m the inverse of Mr Dahir - a non Muslim that’s here in a majority Muslim country. For me and others, strange thing is that this month that’s always an indelible component of the local calendar has come and gone without us hardly noticing, as we’ve been in lockdown throughout
@nytimes @Lattif I like the perspective advanced by this author. Considering that we social distancing should not and must not be left to cause a detrimental impact on societal discourses of religious rituals. Thus fasting and feasting can be apart but spiritually done together in unity.
