Isaia 58:5
"Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for a man to humble himself? Is it only for bowing one's head like a reed and for lying on sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the LORD?"

Can add: Where men are required to follow the rules of other men such as musaafir, tarawih, iftar parties, zakat? Looking forward to the iftar and not fasting for days in a row which means skipping iftar? Paying charity instead of fasting?

Mathew 6:16
"When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full."

Christian fast can last for days, water only fast. Spiritual connection made with G*d thru Jesus Christ.

Women are not to fast while on their mensus, and they make those days up after Ramadan is over. Also, if they were sick or traveling or pregnant or breastfeeding, they would not have to fast and could make it up later.

There are still about ten more days for Ramadan.

When are you planning on going to Egypt? I know one very nice boy (my sister's brother-in-law) who would love to show you around there if he's there. He's in London now, actually, for a few months.

I'm not sure whether they were travelling or not, but it's be interesting to know the reason (without meaning to sound nosy).

Well, it's either Egypt or Greece and Italy. I'd rather go to Egypt, but my mates will decide which it is and when we go. I think I'd like to go in Spring, when it's not baking. I'd love to visit some of the Coptic Orthodox churches there, from what I've seen they're beautiful.

But I digress!

As you drive, you'll see many mosques and churches side by side there. I saw two that were VEEEEEEEERY tall... mosque with minaret, church with steeple (if that's what you call it)... huge buildings, and my husband said that he heard that they had been competing in height when building them.
