7th Ramadan in a slaughtered Syria

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…Injured in Aleppo and the White Helmets

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 ?7th Ramadan in Syria, art work by Anas Salameh, Syrian Revolution account, May,27,2017
