Muslims are now in the thick of Ramadan (OK, fine, we started fasting on Monday, but you know…). If you’re not familiar with the concept of Ramadan, it’s the period before Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Hari Raya Puasa (puasa means to fast) where Muslims are required to fast for a whole month. During the holy month, Muslims are advised to stay away from sinful behaviour, including swearing, talking behind others’ back and other actions that bear ill intentions. They also abstain from drinking and eating from dawn to dusk.
