"Ramadan should be a revolution. Some complain that the ‘ulama (scholars) reduce Islam to prohibitions (haram) or permissions (halal). However, during the month of Ramadan, they do exactly the same. They very formally respect what is forbidden: during the day, they do not eat, do not drink and master themselves. Beyond that, and during the nights, they do almost anything.
Yet Ramadan is a full month, with its days, and its nights. A month where prohibitions only make sense if we change the way we look at things. We must abandon the mirror of appearances and face ourselves, deeply, in the mirror of the intimate. To observe our heart, consider our intentions and our priorities, assume our wounds, analyse our mistakes, and reform our life. Take care of ourselves and those we love. Some are fasting as if the month was a parenthesis of prohibitions for a few days. However, fasting should be a horizon of revolution for life.
Fasting to become a woman, a man. Fasting to grow and change. Fasting to change our days and our nights, fasting to change our life, fasting to change life. A revolution."
