I feel like I didn't learn that much about islam other than that you don't even drink water when you fast??? How do you not go around with constant headaches then??? But seriously I learned more about Islam by having a friend from a muslim country even though she wasn't a muslim. Like it's weird how little Sana's friends new about her traditions?? I was surprised by how ignorant Noora was this season. It was really weird
its easier than you might think to fast, its not nearly as hard as one might think.
also, back when i used to be a muslim, i didnt really talk about my faith or traditions and stuff with non-muslims either, you just dont really talk about it with non-muslims bc you get the ‘wow that must be hard’ ‘wow that is so restrictive’ and weird looks. which is understandable, bc the traditions and norms of another culture is vastly different from your own. vice versa, it would be the same reaction. thats why the more globalized the world becomes, the less tabu this stuff will hopefully become and the less etnocentric society will become
