Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic Calendar and every year millions of muslims all over the world fast during the daylight hours for 30 days. Although I’m not a very religious person myself usually, this month I try to be a good muslim girl and do my best to fast and pray on time.
My earliest childhood memories during this month are always of the night before when we go out to look for the moon to see if the month has started. I remember at the first sight of the moon, my father told me to close my eyes and make a wish, right at that moment. When I was younger, my wishes were more material as I asked for the latest doll or toy that I had my eye on. But as I grew older I noticed my wishes became more about the bigger picture: peace, health, love, etc.. The sad thing is, the material wishes were the ones that usually came true.
Anyhow, I’m going to go distract myself and try not to think about food till sunset. If you’re looking for my style credits or would like to see previous images I’ve done about Ramadan and Eid in Second Life, you can check out my Ramadan blog post on my own blog today.
Happy Ramadan! <3
