In her latest video, Sophia talks about her experiences observing Ramadan this year, and the personal challenges, as well as the rewards, it has brought. 


What did you think about the video? Did you learn anything new about Ramadan?

I'm very happy that I've watched such a great video.
Actually Ramadan is the next week, which makes me super excited... I agree with everything Sophia said, but I just have a point to add, that in Ramadan we get to see our family and friends more often than usual days, because people in Ramadan usually invite there families and friends around sunset, so they can enjoy together as well as breaking there fasting...and even after sunset with about an hour or two, people go to Mosques for praying which really gives peace and calmness in your soul and gives you a chance to see your friends... and after the month Ramadan, we have Eid in which we celebrate after that great worship...and people tend to visit their families... In Eid, rich people should give poor people food, so they can enjoy the Eid with the rest of people...
Those were my notes, from Egypt
Excited for Ramadan...

Great video, Sophia!
As for me , I live in the middle east, so the day is not that long. But it's much, much hotter than the UK. The temperature can easily hit 45°c ! So you get a feeling that all the water inside your body has evaporated !
But since I live here since I was a little kid, I'm used to it, and it wasn't much of a challenge for me.
No one can ever imagine how much we love Ramadan. Oh, it's GREAT! After it finishes, you're a completely different person. It's like a shower that washes you of your bad deeds and habits, and leaves a pure, nice person instead of that person you were. It only comes once a year, so we try to make the best of it. (And by the way I feel that it's the shortest month of the year, I just don't believe that it's already the 27th !)
Ramadan is not just about fasting, it's much, much, more.
Ramadan Mubarak everyone, and I wish you a very happy Eid with your loved ones (:
