The following story was written by Doaa Ragab, from Kingston, Ontario. Doaa is enrolled in LINC classes – Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada with Kingston Literacy & Skills (KL & S).
This month is Ramadan. It is special month for Muslims. It is only one month each year. We are fasting for 30 days. Our fasting starts from sunrise to sunset. The hardest day is the first day and after that it becomes easier. It is order from god to make rich people and poor people equal. All of us eat only two meals at the same time. Also that makes rich people feel as poor people when they are hungry.
This month has special custom, we are gathering to eat with each other. Actually I like this month very much and wait it every year.
