    erm, surely the times will be up on the internet..somewhere, i'm sure if you google it, you will find it.
    I can't find anything specific to where I live. But according to the internet, there are regional differences.

    If I'm honest. I think I'm looking forward to the chicken pakoras the most. Our neighbours do some incredibly nice home-made ones! :woo:

    really excited think it will be difficult but we will get through it and enjoy it :yeah:

    just created this thread to discuss a few things :woo: (and i know there is already a countdown thread but its too general)


    who else is excited?!?:eek3:

    how difficult do you think it will be this year?:confused:

    has anyone ever fasted at this time of year before?:eek: (i havent)

    what is the best food/drink to break your fast with? :teeth:

    what foods do you traditionally have on the table for your first meal?:cool:


    Ramathan Mubarak


    also.. does anyone know if and where they sell ramathan advent calenders? i want one so much :awesome:

    Break fast with dates
    first meal.....I usually have traditional foods (middle east)
    tbh I am bricking myself thinking about how long it is......it is usually until around 8-9pm :eek: :woo:
    most mosques will give you a calander/timetable if you ask...nicely :yep:

    Enjoy it tho

    Ramadan Mubarak to all:yep:

    but in writing dh, people see it more as the 'd' sound as the 'th' sound

    so they end up a saying ram a dan

    but anyway, who cares, pronounce it how u like:yep:
    رمضان look that the third letter is ض in arabic it is pronounced as a heavy 'd' like u hear on the last word of fatihah when recited 'ضآلين', soo the way to pronounce it is like a heavy d and not like th as in that as u suggested

    I don't know. I can't go in and start demanding that someone give me a calendar :p:

    I haven't been in there before, I'm not even sure I know where it is.. I think I'm going to have to look it up.

    Oh sorry did not know you're not muslim. just curious, why do you want one?

    and most (not all unfortunately) mosques will happily give you a calender, no questions asked. if you've never been before then maybe ask a muslim you know to go with you or get it for you =)

    I think I'm going to try to keep a couple (one atleast). But I want to keep it properly, so I'm going to need the times etc. Plus, I'll be working with Muslims, so it's nice to take an interest.. :yep:

    I think I will get someone to accompany me, or it'll be looking for a Muslim butchers for me..

    Woop! Good times lol

    Aaah i just stuff my face with food during Iftar even though i fully full. Though I do feel the effects when I go lay my bomb ,so this year im definitely cutting down.

    Iv also noticed no-one has mentioned the taraweeh prayers? how does everyone find them?
    I personally love going to the mosque for the taraweeh prayers...our mosque is unfornuately located by lots of clubs so on the way back home we get to see all the yobs coming out of the clubs. :eek3:

    Oh that's why

    It's always nice when non-muslims around you keep a couple of fasts. Me and my muslim friends often invited each other to end our fasts together, and would also invite non-muslims friends. If you lived in my area (and were female lol) i would invite you round mines:p:

    Taraweeh love it, especially the imams who recited in a calm medium paced, coz then it feels like the quran is directly talking to u and u can enjoy the voice of the imam, and the beautiful duas u get at the end. The fast-paced ones (and im sure you know what im talking about they recite fatihah in 10 secs flat) not so enjoyable
