Observing Ramadan - The Big Picture

boston.com highlights the importance, struggle and in some cases joy found for Muslims all over the place in the currently running holy month of Ramadan.

They're all brilliant, but my picks include:

  • #4, Jummah at Jakarta's Istiqlal Mosque, now on my list when I return to Indonesia late next year,
  • #7,#8, taken from the Kalandia checkpoint to The West Bank, for the poignant memories,
  • #16, the Bosnian girls' ritual washing, as a reminder of how brilliantly varied and widespread Islam is.
There's plenty of others to consume so I'll leave you all to it. Thanks to Haroon for the link.
