Ramadan was never meant to be about food. It's natural that human beings will want to focus on food after spending half of the day avoiding it, but our focus in Ramadan should be to pull ourselves away from these dunyawi desires and habits and achieve a higher level of awareness and living. Many Muslims are in danger of making Islam a part of their culture, something hauled out twice a year at Ramadan and Hajj. It's time for women to stand up and reclaim our religious duties, responsibilities, and rights, especially in Ramadan. We're the vanguard of Islam in "Masjid al Bait," and we need to take it seriously.
