Ramadan Fast-a-Thon

UofT held a fast-a-thon this year, and it's the 3rd one in a row. Alhamdulillah it was well attended, and Safiyyah has a really nice account on her blog.
At Sana's high-profile iftar, I met Grahame Rivers- one of Sana's friends, and an avid Liberal just like her. Grahame was quite interested in experiencing fasting, and when I told him about the fast-a-thon, he just had to give it a try!
When I saw Grahame @ 6:30, his face was awfully red, and he could barely speak. Sana and I distracted him until we got to the food [the food was awful...], and after that it seemed all normal.

I'm glad I got to hear an account of a non-Muslim's experience of fasting. It really opens your eyes to the gifts in your religion.
