The Holy Month of Ramadhan is upon us; this has always been a particularly special time for me and the family. Besides the obvious spiritual connotations, i truly believe its a time of family bonding -- waking up for the sahur together, a time when the children, waking up earlier, prepare breakfast for the parents, then the always-special dinners at the end of a long day, and the experience of the tarawih prayers as a family. In many ways, perhaps the closest thing to heaven on earth.
The Volume of Interactions will do a month-long series on the month of Ramadhan and the Muslim fasting period. There is much to learn about ramadhan and fasting that i do not yet know; this year i'll try to change that and will share all my findings with everyone.
Please allow me to be the first to wish all my Muslim readers a happy ramadhan. This month is a great blessing for all of us.
