Keeping the Ramadan Spirit, Even With Anorexia







Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses and individuals who have eating disorders or are recovering should be careful in making any decision to fast. Even though fasting during Ramadan is an obligation for Muslims, individuals who are sick or have a health condition are exempt. Individuals can also consider participating in Ramadan through other means, such as involvement in charity, extra prayers, servicing the community, etc. It may be a good idea to consult with a physician, psychologist, or a religious leader for professional opinion and guidance.
