When You Fast, Do Not Look Somber as the Hypocrites Do

Though I’m a moslem myself, I think this quotation (which I assume is taken from the Christian Bible)  would serve as a good reminder for every moslem fasting today:

WHEN YOU FAST … Do not look somber as the HYPOCRITES do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.”
“But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, “
“So that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your FATHER, WHO IS UNSEEN; and your FATHER, who sees what is done in SECRET, will reward you.”

Too often we see people work less efficiently in Ramadhan. And I am fully against this. It seems like fasting is the understandable excuse for the worsening productivity but alas, that’s such a lame excuse for devoted moslems to have.

Because devotion simply strengthens...
