    • Agreed. This gives an impression that Muslims are more obsessed with eating and drinking than Ibadah…

  1. I don’t understand why Muslims have to do any kind of special food shopping or cooking for that matter. In fact, their grocery bill should go down and not up.

    We are supposed to have the same everyday food to open our fasts with that we currently have and not elaborate ones. Therefore, I cannot understand this mass shopping sprees that most Muslims indulge in every beginning of Ramadhan.

    The food we cook and eat should be simple fare and most of our time should be spent in Ibadah, instead and deeds that help others…., Insha’Allah.
