Ramadan has begun, and yes, in Pakistan, the weather’s pretty hot already. But the good thing this year is that people are now at home as the whole world is observing a lockdown amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
However, as much as spending at school, college or work was challenging (still is for some), staying home will also be a challenge! Why are days challenging while you fast? Ever thought about that?
Yes, one of the significant points is that we go on with the day for hours without food and water. But what can help us is our food intake at suhoor and Iftar!
