Rehana helped explain all about Ramadan to the children today.
She said that Ramadan is a little like recharging your ‘moral batteries’. The point of fasting is to help you focus on how to be a good person. This is important all year round of course but Ramadan is a way of focusing on this very deeply which helps you to be good all year round.
Ramadan is also a time for giving and all those who can are expected to donate to the poor.
Even though fasting is particularly hard during the summer months it is expected that Muslims carry on with their usual responsibilities.
