15 Types of People You Encounter During Ramadan

3 min read

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The Islamic calendar being lunar, marks the beginning of Ramadan with a crescent moon sighting.

Muslims worldwide fast from sunrise to sunset to celebrate the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Fasting for Muslims, during Ramadan, not only includes refraining from eating and drinking but negativity as well. Ramadan is seen as a time of self-cleanse and reflection. Many Muslims use this time to make a habit of positive change and better themselves for the future.

Feeling a little hungry? Distract yourself with this listicle that describes the types of people you meet during Ramadan. Of course, not everyone falls into these categories – but the best always do.

1. People who suddenly become “religious” and claim everything is forbidden or Haram

“Hey, is that music you’re listening to?”

2. Those who are impossible to wake up for Suhoor (breakfast before sunrise)

5.  People who ask if they can start eating… when it’s only been 5 minutes since suhoor.

“Can we eat yet?”
“No”
5 minutes later
“How about now?”
“No.”
