    MUSLIMZ LOL.

    But yeah, seriously, I'm not really looking forward to it. It sucks as I'm pretty much then stuck in my house for the month as I can't really go out with my friends at all. So yeah, it's gonna see my post count shoot up faster than a [insert relevant metaphor here].

    Why do people look forward to this? I mean, I must seriously be missing something. I can see the point of it, but it's not an enjoyable experience, truth be told?

    Well, eh. It's not so much the food + drink thing (despite the fact that I can never 'feast' because I become full after like, 1 plate of food), but more the sudden clampdown on my social life. In any scenario, why do you guys enjoy it so much? Could give me something to look forward to, so I can enjoy, rather than endure.

    my family is pretty strict, but still, im allowed to go out and just chill. This is as long as ive prayed enough, But then again, you can never pray enough. Also, when you go namaz, iy just feels good to see how everyone is together. Our group of friends usually go to the local shop during asar and maghraib, and stock up for iftaar. We also break into a classroom in mosque, where we open our fast. so its cool :yy:

    Aye, I'm not being held down in chains or anything, it's just that most social events tend to involve the consumption of food/drink. I mean, going out to dinner with friends, or even just chilling in town - chances are we'll go to Tesco and grab some junk.

    Throwin' my hands up and admitting I don't know what that word means (I don't actually speak arabic, funnily enough). I'm also the only muslim in my group of friends - any and all other muslims I know are family, and we'll usually only go for a big meet up on the last day, so I'm missing out on the community aspect of that I suppose.

    I can relate to chidona, but I still like Ramadan!
    The food is great, its for a good reason and there is a sense of unity
    I don't have many Muslim friends so its a struggle when we go out but they are really understanding and some have even "fasted" with me to understand what we go through and coincidently the poor.
