Back in June when I signed up for a five-day art workshop including lunch which will take place in September, it never occurred to me that it would be during Ramadan. It is not something I think about all the time nor something I feel obliged to do every year, but as it was a positive experience for me last year (the first time), I felt like doing it again this year. But… So as I pondered, I thought how the Qur’an says fasting is good for you if you only knew. Yes. God doesn’t want to make things hard for you. OK. If you are traveling, you can make up days missed. Hmm, there is leeway. But too much leeway and there will no longer be any resemblance to the original. I decided to make those days up in advance. That seemed to me to be the most honest.
