Thank you (Shukran), BUniverse and the Najjar family, for this posting. Grateful for the inclusiveness shown by the B.U. community as well as the prayer and wash room accommodations at the GSU. This month of restraint from food and drink, of being introspective and mindful of our actions/intentions, checking our emotions and ego, being ever mindful of the Creator of the heavens and earth and showing reverence for all the Messengers from Adam, Moses, Jesus to Muhammad, and all in between, and living peacefully in tolerance with all of mankind is an annual obligation that hopefully humbles and carries us from Ramadan to Ramadan; year to year. Peace.....

Wow this was so comforting! I will be a freshmen next year at BU InshAllah (God willing), and my parents were really worried about how I would practice at such a large institution. Thank you Shakeela and BUNIVERSE, you have both given me strength. HAPPY RAMADAN =D
