21 Signs Your Muslim Friend Is Fasting

They have a date lined up every night. And they won’t stop making puns about it.

1. Their Instagram feed is full of #Iftaari.

Die of hunder during the day. Die of fullness after Maghrib.

2. And #Sehri.

3. And, of course, a special mention for Roohafza!

The Red Draught Ramadan is incomplete without!

4. They don’t get tired of sharing this joke.

Seriously. Year after year after year.

5. They put important notices on their desk.


6. And they keep their distance while having any face-to-face conversations.

Allah may love that fasting breath, but humans definitely don’t.

7. If you ask them the time:

8. They’ve started seeing Ramadan references in all popular culture.

9. Their weekend Check-Ins look like this:

And at Gulsan-e-Iran, Shalimar, Bade Miya, Rajasthan, Naya Nagar.

10. And their weekend plans when they aren’t eating look like:

‘Hey, you wanna do something this weekend?’
‘No, I’m really, really busy.’

11. Their tagged photos look like this:

It’s usually their aunt who has just discovered facebook. If you want to know who your friend’s family is, click on the 25 others.

12. Their standard reply to almost anything:

‘Let’s go take a walk’
‘No bro, I’m fasting’

13. Their reaction when someone lies about fasting:

We all have that one friend who says he’s fasting but is later seen grabbing lunch.

14. If they walk into a place with food during the day:

Let’s moonwalk out of here and come back after Iftaari maybe!

15. Their face if there’s a lunch party at work:

Earn some sawaab, save something tasty for them!

16. And when they keep a fast without Sehri, you’ll know to treat them extra nicely all day:

Maghrib, y u so far?

If I just lay here, maybe Maghrib will come faster.

17. Even though they’re totally chill with you eating/drinking around them, you’ll be too consumed by guilt to ever actually do it.

18. There’s no use trying to talk to them in the 10 minutes leading up to Iftaari because they’re definitely preoccupied.

19. And if you happen to witness that first bite, you’ll know what true joy looks like.

20. Anyway, your job is to be as supportive as possible – this is an extremely important (yet difficult!) month for your pal.

21. And, in return for your unconditional love and support, feel free to demand all the delicious food you want.
