Favourite Videoclip: Ramadan 101 by Yusuf Islam: Motivational Clip about Basics of Fasting

Bismillah

As Salaamu 'alaykum and peace to all,

Favourite Videoclip: Ramadan 101 by Yusuf Islam: Motivational Clip about Basics of Fasting




That day, I was hanging out with one of my dearest friends and I was asked to explain to her what Ramadan is really about. Being a non-Muslim, she was very curious to know why Muslims willingly go thru '30 days of hunger', as she put it, and she wanted to know why.

I absolutely love the opportunity to share the whatever little that I know.

So, I started explaning the basics of Ramadan like why Muslims fast, when fasting first made compulsory, other Prophets like Prophet Moses(as) and Prophet Jesus(as) who had also fasted, the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of fasting; and not forgetting the impact of fasting on individuals, families and society at large.

As I was explaining to her, I began to realize the truthness of the words of Isocrates,

To teach is to learn twice.

Absolutely! As I was talking, my brain started to venture into ideas I have never thought about before, subhanAllah!

At the end of our chat, I promised my dearest friend to send more information about Ramadan via her email.

So, I went back home and started researching, and this was when I found this wonderful videoclip by Yusuf Islam or famously known as Cat Steven, explaining the basics of Ramadan in such beautiful manner, subhanAllah.

Let me share the videoclip with you... I called this videoclip Ramadan 101 :)



Till then, salaams!
