    Being a Christian, who doesn’t practice, I have always wanted to know the reason behind fasting. My godmother doesn’t eat meat on the Friday before Easter, and always goes to church, to me that is a big part of my religion, but I don’t follow it. However, I do appreciate everyone’s opinions and beliefs and fully respect them, I find fasting, as a Muslim celebration a very interesting celebration, and I appreciate your post as I am always looking to understand more about this religion. Thank you for being so opened about it and thank you for creating this blog, you have certainly gained a follower.
