“Gotta admit – I have absolutely not been feeling it this Ramadan.

Incredibly tough to have yet another Ramadan in a pandemic,

while working and studying.

Since Ramadan started,

I’ve been on 24 hr call 3 times.

I miss the masjid and I miss the community / comradery

🥺

Also,

Ramadan in America is hard.

You’re still expected to work at the same level and capacity as if you’re not fasting,

except now you’re fatigued and hangry.

You can’t simultaneously work at your fullest potential and participate in Ramadan at your fullest.

Your routine and sleep schedule are off while everyone around you is at their norm.”
