    Surviving Ramadan Guide (Advanced) I am using a throwaway account and Tor to hide my identity. I 'll ATTEMPT to keep this short as possible, but I can 't make any promises. Ignore the terrible grammar and structure, its the content that counts. So as an ex muslim for 6 years, being female with quite strict parents, I have done certain things to survive this month. Ramadan often feels like purgatory or even hell for those who don 't believe and even those who do believe, do not seem to enjoy it either. Unless you muslim hardcore, well then, have a blast, I guess. I 'm not sure if its just me but it seems as if muslims around us become more religious, annoying, grouchy and even aggressive during this unholy month. But lets have a little sympathy, can you really blame them? Fasting for almost whole days, dehydration, broken sleep pattern and excessive praying/worshipping while watching Islamic youtube videos are not healthy habits to keep one fully sane. Food For those who must fast, I recommend you fake it. Do not let ramadan take away any of your freeodm. I repeat, do not let this month interfere too much with your daily routine. Stock up food for ramadan in your room. Obviously, nothing with strong smell or loud. Try to go outside (in a non muslim area) and eat so there is less chance of getting caught. Recommended: - Granola/breakfast bars - Instant Noodles, Pot noodles (I actually brought a mini kettle in my room to make noodles and I suggest you do this too, they are…

Islam demonstrates this alternate core component through profession, both…
