Chinese Muslims banned from fasting in Ramadan

Chinese Muslims banned from fasting in Ramadan

Many people do not understand the benefits of fasting and will think that the above is good for the Muslims in China not to be allowed to fast during Ramadan.

Ramadan is not only a month of fasting but it is a month of religious observances, families getting together and communities gathering for Iftar (the breaking of the fast meal each night)

It is a time of special prayers and a time of spiritual rejuvenation where many people try and renew a right spirit within them.

Thus, being deprived of being able to fast, also comes with the high price of not being allowed to gather together and be a community.

This is a very hard price for the Chinese Muslims to pay.  May God give them courage and strength.
