Over a longer period I don’t know if that would hold true, but for fasting in July it’s definitely the case! Even until 9pm food was not appealing to me, but the thought of a really cold drink was. This is such a new experience for me as usually my stomach rumbles throughout the day in Ramadan. I’m sure this rings true for most people fasting.
If any of you switch on the TV at sehri time, please watch Islam Channel who are running various charity appeals at this time of night. One of the presenters is really engaging and makes lovely duas. He actually makes you want to donate money – what a great skill!
