Re: Ramadan 2020

Miski Osman is a junior doctor from London. Because of the coronavirus lockdown this will be the first Ramadan she has ever spent alone. Normally the 27-year-old would spend it surrounded by extended family and friends but as she cannot take the risk of bringing Covid-19 home from work, she has been assigned temporary NHS accommodation miles away from her loved ones.

“I’m living with another doctor who is also Muslim but they will be doing the opposite shift to me so I am trying to sort out how I can do iftar (the meal eaten to break fast at sunset) with my friends and family,” she says. “I’m sure I’ll partake in virtual iftars, as some of my friends are in the same situation too.”

Like many Muslims, Osman’s Ramadan usually consists of lots of family time: preparing dinner for relatives, enjoying each other’s company and spending time together. She also normally volunteers at the Ramadan Tent Project, a charity which hosts large community meals across the capital. But this year will be a much lonelier affair, in which Osman hopes instead to read the Quran in its entirety (a goal many Muslims set during Ramadan).

“I don’t remember the last time I had time to myself during Ramadan, I’m normally busy with family. This is a chance to reflect more, to worship more. I know it will have a huge benefit to what we’re all trying to deal with [coronavirus].”

Re: Ramadan 2020

Hopefully there will be less death on the roads in the half hour leading to Iftar. I used to dread driving at this time in Kuwait with drivers with seriously low blood sugar racing to get home in time. There used to be horrendous accidents.
