Wednesday, March 22, 2023, Slice of Life Challenge # 22/31 Ramadan vibe in my class...

Ramadan is here, the most awaited and revered month for Muslims worldwide.

This month is not just about fasting for 30 days, but it is a holistic approach to freeing your mind and body from toxicity. It purifies your soul like torrential rain that cleanses the muddy fields, providing a scintillating smoothing effect.

My students are also delighted to welcome our guest, and they asked me if they could do a Ramadan corner, decorating it as per the Ramadan theme.

I was glad to help them have one. They squeezed their time from recess and beautified a little corner.

And what was the part that really touched me was that students who won't be fasting were excited to be a part of this and, it struck me that Ramadan binds humanity irrespective of religion, nationality, or cultural boundaries. It was beautiful to see them bond together, actually, I got teary-eyed when two students said, "we wouldn't fast but wanted to help with this, please."

I am thinking where are the boundaries and differences that the media talks about.

I am grateful it doesn't exist in my not-so-famous class.

My daughter and I were just talking this morning over breakfast about how children are born pure and good with no negative perspectives. You are showing this universal truth with your students in your post today. I do not know a lot about the Muslim culture and religion, but I love the glimpse you are giving me today. I love the line "Ramadan binds humanity irrespective of religion, nationality, or cultural boundaries". I think we are bound together in many ways if we just open our eyes and our hearts to each other.
