Ramadan – Why I Love It

One of the best things for me here in Egypt in Ramadan is Moa’d El Rahman. What is Moa’d El Rahman? Well, I first need to explain something. We do believe that the value of charity work increases during Ramadan, and that is why many Muslims try to do as much charity work as they can during Ramadan.

Moa’d El Rahman is just one of kind of charity work. People collect money from each other and there will be a tables full of food at sunset for everyone without discrimination. Alternatively, rich people will volunteer to pay and organise such tables on each of the 30 days of Ramadan.

Many other people who don’t have enough money to make such tables can do something else. You can find many families standing in the streets at sunset to give you juice, some dates or even water 🙂 So if you are in Egypt and hungry during Ramadan and you come across tables full of fresh food in the streets, don’t even hesitate. Take a seat and enjoy your meal 😉
