Veganism is a moral framework and has been an integral component to countless cultures and religions around the world for ages. Rastafarians, as discussed here, refrain from eating animals and their secretions because they believe divine energy is within every living being and that eating a whole foods plant-based diet is most respectful of our own bodies as well.
Ramadan Mubarak to all my Muslim Tumblr friends observing the fast. Ramadan is a great equaliser. Fasting establishes equality among the rich and the poor. It is a compulsory experience of poverty to make all people share an equality (not diversity) of feeling and to sympathise with one another through a collective sense of discomfort.
In these last years we have witnessed the worst refugee crisis since World War 2. We have also witnessed the persecution of the Muslim by illegal wars, apartheid, racism, discrimination, racial profiling, assault, genocide, and Islamaphobia. As one Muslim fasts there will be over a billion other Muslims who will be fasting in unity … in refugee tents and camps; in detention centres; on the streets; in blown up buildings with no electricity; hiding (the fast) for fear of persecution…
Man’s sense of compassion springs from his feeling of pain, and fasting is a practical means to develop compassion in his spirit. When rich people establish such a feeling for the hungry poor, their inner humane principles attain an effective authority. In this regard, it is reported that the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) was the most generous among people, and he was especially generous during Ramadan.
Wishing all Muslims a generosity in spirit and in deed this Ramadan. ❤️
