Ramadan is all about love of God  
As the holy month of Ramadan quickly approaches, I must admit feeling not a small amount of dread: the days of Ramadan are going to be substantially longer for the years to come. Because of the lunar calendar, the month of Ramadan moves earlier each year by about 11 days. Thus, it is not too long before we will have long fasts in the dreadful heat of the summer.

Those are real fasts

And I fully admit that this dread I have is out of weakness: weakness to forgo food and drink for a portion of the day for the sake of the Precious Beloved. Yet, I do not hesitate to ask Him for everything I need in life, knowing that He will not fail to deliver.

That is why I need to stop and reflect about the essence of the fast: indeed, it is a spiritual - more than physical - exercise at increasing one's piety. Indeed, fasting is a way for those who are more fortunate to feel for those who are less fortunate, those who forgo food and drink, not by choice, but out of sheer poverty. Indeed, fasting teaches one patience and generosity.

Globalization and the Muslim Society  
With the advances of rapid transportation, instant information and communication, the world, from Atlantic to Afghanistan, is converting into a global village; the distance and difference are changing substantively and speedily and becoming irrelevant. The line of demarcation between diverse cultures and civilizations, in the ever-shrinking world, is said to be becoming blurred. The assimilation process is giving rise to the phenomenon of the so-called globalization; a universally integrated social and cultural environment where science and technology will be shared and free trade will prevail among nations. With the premise that all cultures are equal, the presumed global culture, we are told, would be equally participated and shared by entire human race; thus enlarging the scope of international solidarity and fellowship. 

However, when we cut through the elitist's rhetoric of globalization, we find ourselves twinkling around at the glimmering light of the western world.
