Fasting not Feasting (FnF) can be seen as a mobilising principle to help embody the spirit of Ramadan, which exists to mark the human reception of His Speech, the Qur'an. For a growing number of Muslims in the UK, and other countries, its a kinda-under-the-radar communal campaign for transformation and piety in Ramadan, against gluttony and consumerism.
Resisting injustice, whether from corporate, governmental or organisational capture, and charitivity is important here, as we encourage each other to sharpen the skills and reach of everyday Islamic practices. We do not await hierarchical instructions. Tarawi prayers amongst trees and Flashmob Iftaris are likely to unfold in towns and cities all over the place.
