Well Ramadan is officially upon us. In Morocco it started yesterday but I was too tired to write! Yes Ramadan means fasting from sunrise to sunset. It is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and a period of spiritual reflection and a time to thank our higher power for all the things we are grateful for in our lives. The name is taken from the word ramad which means that which means intensely heated by the sun. It was named this because fasting during the month is said to burn our sins away. whewww…Ramadan during the hot summer months is certainly a test of our willpower.
Stat tuned. Tomorrow, Moroccan recipes for Ramadan treats.
