Where are you from?
To be honest, I never had a good experience by answering that kind of question because I get stereotyped right away from people. Not saying you'll stereotype me but it's gonna change your perception of me if I tell you where I'm from. Just know that I'm a Muslim, unapologetic about it too (not trying to boast :messenger_tongue:)

Yo Mista

Ramadan is coming, I wonder if there's a topic for it around?

Well seeing how few muslims seem to be around I doubt a new topic would be worth it. I guess we're better off sticking here!

If you live in Dubai I'm fucking jealous.

So far so good. I have to say not having meals during the day liberates a good amount of time.

How is it going for you and the others? Also, what id love to know: What kind of meals are consumed after time has passed? Im curious if there is a significant amount of variation between users. I am aware of some things, but id love to hear what people personally eat and if it differs.

All good. Mostly the traditional food. Rice, chicken, meat, grape leaves..etc

There’s no food meta in Ramadan apart from the forbidden of course

You get used to it. Intermittent fasting seems to be popular nowadays, at least from what I see in self-improvement Twitter, so I guess anyone can fast; the hardest thing is to get started.

To answer @Redneckerz's question, personally I don't eat too much. Just a bowl of harira, a crepe or two, some chebakia and an omelette.

I go crazy if I fast for one day. I don’t know how you guys do it. Props.
Tough first day or two but then it’s all easy really

According to dishes you posted I assume you’re from Morocco or near countries correct?

Just curious, if you have a medical condition that requires you to be able to eat, how would a Muslim go about doing Ramadan fasting then?

I'd imagine anyone who has a medical condition like I do, it would be hard for them to do so.

If you have any medical condition you’re allowed to eat and not fast at all.

I dunno what constitutes as traditional food, but i know milk and (dates Lendls?? I do not know the word sadly and translate does not convince me enough to use it properly) are involved, when it comes to traditional meals.

I know of Harira, the crepe (I love those too), but Chebakia, whats that? It sounds like a cake or a bread kind of thing, and i don't want to ruin it by looking it up :p

From the both of you, i do see differences in foods, i have the impression that you, Khalid take only what is needed and stick to a more traditional meal, whilst @Mista cultivates a more modern set of foods, and perhaps in bigger quantities?

Chebakia is a type of pastry that's sweet and crunchy and has honey and sesame on it. You can see what it looks like below:

As you'd imagine it's really tasty!

Not bigger. Nobody can eat a lot especially while breaking their fast

That does definitely look like something id like to try out! We have a food supply chain here that weekly has these discounts on stuff from different countries, which is a great thing to get used to brands you usually wouldn't eat or drink.

Now they have Tsingtao beers - I drank these before, and they are surprisingly good, so tomorrow i am going to get a few for my friend. Its good stuff.

By what you described, i definitely thought you ate more than Khalid does :)

Ah i see, i was already wondering how you could eat such quantities even regarding the feeling of hunger after the fasting period.
Nah its impossible to eat this much especially after fasting 13 hours. Gradually we start shoving the food down teh throat bruv

That's right, you can't eat a lot when you break fast. Personally I don't even feel that hungry.
