If you think fasting, going to the mosque for prayer and refraining from impure, negative thoughts and actions throughout the day in Ramadan is hard, think again.
My brother-in-law is a low-key, humble individual. He not only spends the afternoon carefully monitoring and preparing food for over 150 laborers and low-income expatriates in Hawalli but also helps serve them food (even though he himself is fasting as well). He is the real embodiment of a Muslim, one who is a brother to all, irrespective of race, rank and color.
There are thousands of people like him in Kuwait working diligently – every single day of Ramadan – towards the betterment of others.
And they do it quietly. You won’t see their pictures in any newspapers.
Nevertheless, they are the real heroes in this society (and in Islam).
