Fasting and Break fast

It is the fasting month yet again. Through fasting, we might be able to share and empathy the hardship endured by the less fortunate. While there would be hunger, fasting would less likely to cause starvation. In fact, it gives the chance for the stomach to take a rest after a whole year of eating.

At the call of Maghrib prayer, muslims around the globe would break fast. This is the moment to recharge and rejuvenate after a long day of fasting. Malaysians love to break fast with family, friends and loved ones. Non-muslim friends would timed their dinner to coincide with break fast so that they could share their meal time with their muslim friends.

If you are in Malaysia, join the locals for break fast, or as popularly know as ‘Berbuka Puasa’. If you want the food to taste somewhat better, try fasting youself. As someone once told me, “You can’t describe how it is better, but you can just feel it if you fast.”

Happy fasting.
