“It’s been 13 years since I started fasting during Ramadan”, said Honey, “from the time I entered Islam.” Sitting in the kid’s store that she owns and manages, she talked about how she used to hear stories about Ramadan from friends while growing up. It felt like an impossible task then, even though she felt very curious at that age.
The one thing that she remembers from her first Ramadan is eating biryani. “Each night, I would have biryani,” she said with a laugh.
She finds it inspiring how her son fasts, something she can’t imagine herself doing at that age. “But then faith brings miracles,” she said with glowing eyes, “it makes everything easy.”
