Orange Prayer Rug

Every home in Saudi Arabia has many prayer rugs – at least one for every member of the household and some extra ones for visitors. Prayer rugs are sold just about everywhere and are very affordable. They come in every color of the rainbow, in different designs, and they are also made in varying sizes too – the smallest ones are sized for toddlers who like to immitate the older children and adults when they see them praying five times a day. The holy month of Ramadan just began. It is when all Muslims fast during the daylight hours and only eat and drink from sundown until sun up. During this month families often get together to break the fast together in the evening.

    That rug is beautiful. I’m curious how Ramadan would work for somebody like me, who can pass out if he goes for food for more than 3 or 4 hours because of hypoglycemia? I literally can’t make it through a 15 hour fast, I likely wouldn’t wake up.

    • Anyone with medical conditions or illnesses, children, and pregnant women are not required to fast, however they should eat and drink at home discreetly and not in front of persons who are fasting. Once they are well, they would be obliged to make up the month-long fast down the road. If it is a permanent condition like hypoglycemia, they do not have to fast at all.
