    in the SC usually the Hanafi school of jurisprudence is followed and until recently it was acceptable to smoke

    I'm sitting in the middle of an audit where everyone is eating Panera and talking about other countries' dishes, yet I am unfazed. You body can adapt to that kind of a thing pretty easily.

    There are a few links online from different countries that talk about deeming it haram based on all the medical research.

    This prohibition is by account of the harm it causes to one’s religion, well-being, and financial condition, and any one of these reasons is enough to account for its prohibition.

    Yeah I regularly have to sit through lunch meetings where everyone but me is enjoying a delicious meal and it doesn't really bother me. I really start to feel the fast about an hour before the fast ends. I think that's because my mind starts anticipating the end and hence allows me to think about food/water.

    Yeah. People are always careful regarding food but it has never really caused any problems when people eat in front of me during Ramadan.

    The things I find difficult are:

    1. Two meals very close together (feel bloated).
    2. Thirst, especially during this heatwave.
    3. I have Osteopenia, so my bones start hurting near the time.
    4. No Caffeine, and with less sleep it's difficult when you are working full time.

    It's the fasting hours that would do me in. Can't remember the exact rules when it comes to breaking the fast but here it's light from about 4:30am until 10pm.

    yeah read that in the UK the fasting hours can be in excess of 18 hours a day. That must be tough.

    In the SC it is usually at 16 hours per day max.......on the flip side the UK is much cooler so it makes it easier to fast IMO........with temperatures in excess of 45 degrees celsius it can get really challenging in some parts of the country here

    I can't stuff myself in the morning, so basically I start feeling hungry at around 11am and end up with hunger pangs all afternoon.

    Gets dark at about 5pm here atm so it works well for the muslim couple I'm friends with. The mosque provides all meals as well so they're going to save a ****ton of money for a month.

    I went with them to the evening prayer for the meal earlier this week because they insisted I come. Felt like a massive freeloader because I am not and will never be muslim or even religious but apparently the mosque leader guy was stoked to see someone like me there.

    It was an experience.

    yeah, that meal that you had is called iftar and actually is an event in most places

    @Daemon, why do you still fast?

    What are the rules on water intake? I didn't think there were any, isn't it dangerous at this time of year?
