Hello and greetings, I go by the name of the bearded captain, leader and flag bearer of all beards on digital and broadcast media. I am that beard who tries to make people laugh, and I am that beard who tries to make people smile.
My bearded beloved’s so, now you are aware of what Ramadan is, which is great … I want to clarify and clear up some misconceptions. Fasting … isn’t for everyone, yes you read that right.
The only people who should fast, are those who are able. So, to clarify, the people who are exempt from fasting are pregnant women, the elderly and young children. Of course, the people who have underlying health conditions are exempt too.
Many examples of friends and family are doing this (not fasting due to their health, and that’s fine, health is the main priority). Muslims can brush their teeth, so for the sake of family members, make sure you do that guys.
One misconception, I also heard about Ramadan was you’re not allowed to engage in sexual activity. There’s no case of “no nut November” here. What, you should do, just like you would in terms of food and drink is not have it during daylight hours.
To clarify my beards, which I should have done before, it’s encouraged that he/she who can’t fast, that they should give to charity. Ramadan is seen as a month of mercy, where you aim to get spiritually closer to god.
In no way should you overexert yourself, but to an extent no pain no gain, for he/she who’s able. Ramadan is aimed to break you and not destroy you, far from it. It’s over and out from the bearded captain.
