Masterji - I don't really give a shit if you fast or not to be honest. But I will say that I have heard that it's very healthy for you. I saw a BBC documentary, "East, Fast and Live Longer" by Michael Mosley. It's very interesting. Maybe you should check it out as motivation not to "eat the wrong things and put on weight" (as you said) next Ramadan. Sort of defeats the purpose of fasting if you do that.

P.S. be glad you're not here in Sweden. The sun barely sets at this time of year.

PC credentials my foot. I'm f**k stuffed right now with possibly the best goat curry I've ever eaten and fantastic samei.


Yeah I was dangling a bit of bait with that one. Nothing wrong with it. Although TG's huge banner was a pretty enthusiastic effort.

What's samei? Do you do Ramadan too?


Not Muslim mate. 🙂

Normally people that tell me they don't care are the ones that take an unhealthy interest, but the purpose of fasting is multi faceted and eating in moderation is one of them. But on a positive note it's great to see a guy like you to care for the welfare of a Muslim.
Eid mubarak to you brother.

Hmmm, yes. That's what I said.

Don't believe the forum toss-pots. There's no reason I wouldn't care for the welfare of a Muslim. I don't have anything against Muslims. But I won't get it details in this thread. If you're interested in discussing it, you can join one of the other related threads. Ed mubarak to you too.

Hey Mog, I'm not sure but maybe you can help: Is it Eid Al-Fitr on the loosehead side and and Eid Al-Adha on the tight, or the other way around?

How does that square with you putting on weight and the fact that the iftar/dinner tend to be massive?

I remember a couple of years ago, a double page advert in the Gulf News in Dubai saying "celebrate Ramadan this year with a new Porsche". I'm sure many people did, but it did seem to go against the spirit of Ramadan.

They can be massive but it's more to do with what we eat, for us of a Asian background the craving for spices especially in Samosas and pakoras leads to eating fried food on a scale much bigger than any other time and thr other factor is eating late at night.

I was wondering why there were so many Muslim folk down in Dundrum Town Centre today.
I guess I now have the answer.
There were two big tables at a cafe, one with only the women and kids, the other only adult males.
Is this usual?

You're thinking of sheer khurma which is also delicious and is a sort of rice pudding with dates.

Seviyan is a sweet noodle dish:

Eid Mubarak


Serious question that's always kind of puzzled me - what are the rules if you happen to live in extreme latitudes and Ramadan falls during your summer? Are you allowed to take the sunset time at Mecca's latitude or something for when you can eat?

Ireland was the only country where Lent was 39 days.

Good old St Patrick's day where one could eat and drink what they wanted.

The one good thing about Eid in the summer is that at least the weather is better and the kids can play outside.

Eid Mubarak friends, hopefully lockdown won't stop the celebrations too much.
My friend is driving to Bradford later to pick up a curry. A 2 1/2 HOUR ROUND TRIP :uhoh:

It looks like its tomorrow for us, but as there is no Eid prayer in the Mosque, the day won't be any different to any other day at the moment.

Had that. And curries and samoosas and all kinds of sweet stuff. I am fortunate I'm having a young Muslim couple as neighbours, very observant. And they spoil me rotten... And I love it.
