For Muslims worldwide, Ramadan is not only the month of fasting, but this of reflexion about the religion, and well-doing.Those who cannot fast (for a health reason, for example), must give money as an equivalent.
In Syria, this Ramadan is the 7th one since the beginning of the Revolution: it will not be a month of reflexion, because people don’t have time enough ; as well-doing, the White Helmets remind us the meaning of the Quran in a world where extremism reigns; their motto, ” Who saves a life saves the whole humanity”, is a verse of the Quran; since the foundation of their organization, they saved so many lives…
Fasting begins at the sunrise and ends at the sunset (Maghreb prayer): after this prayer, the whole family and their friends join to eat, and the break of the fast is not only a meat, it is also an occasion to thank God for the food He gave.
In Syria, prices of first necessity products have exploded since the Revolution: with deprivation , comes speculation, even if it is forbidden in Islam.
Bread , salt, milk, for instance : their price is 900°/° what it was before 2011.
In these conditions, what of the meat after Maghreb ?
Ramadan is also, traditionally, a happy month for children: at the end , for the “Great Feast” ( Arabic “Ait El Kabir”), they receive gifts, such as Christian kids at Christmas. But how many children Assad killed since 2011?
Assad has slaughtered Syria; particularly, he exterminated its future, by killing the children .
Ad the end of the fast, people join in family , but how many families are entire now? No killed, nor refugees ?

This is Syria now. As a solidarity between Muslims must exist, those who would give to Syrians can do it via
Ramadan is also the month of well- doing: helping Syria is now a necessity.
