A Former Muslim Looks at Lent and Ramadan

Hazem Bader
Old Muslim decorations for Ramadan showing the star and crescent symbol are pictured with the belltowers of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem’s Manger Square on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2023.

A Muslim fasts to draw nearer to a distant God. A Christian fasts to draw nearer to a God who became man and dwelt among us.
