As we begin this blessed month under unprecedented conditions.
I'd like to wish my friends and family a very safe and healthy Ramadan Mubarak/Kareem 2020.
I expressed an interest to participate in the Observing Ramadan in Britain and Overseas Photo Research Project.
This research is being conducted by Phd researcher Laura Jones - Cardiff University.
I've been asked to take a photograph of Ramadan every day and provide a short explanation. Please find photographs of my Ramadan Diary 2020.
Sadly, this was the second Ramadan in my life where I was not well enough to fast.
I pray Allah azza wa'ajal (God) will accept my prayers and zakat, Aameen!
Home made banana bread to continue with my zero waste efforts and use up all those brown bananas I didn't have the heart to throw in the bin.

I thoroughly enjoyed participating in this Phd photo research.
Its been a harsh, challenging and reflective Ramadan learning about all the victims of Covid-19 especially the medical professionals and key workers who sacrificed their lives to protect millions.
I hope and pray their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
May Allah subhana wa'tala bless the deceased with Paradise and bless their families with patience and love.
The only difficulty I faced was to remember to take a photo each day.
Two photographs need to included in the diary above.
I hope to read Laura's work in the near future and wish her well with her Phd.
Thank you for reading.
To support the call to eliminate child labour, I attended a webinar, 'Stacey Fru dialogue on Child Labour in Africa,' On World Day Against Child Labour.
I also shared a childhood photo with the caption,
“As a kid, I wanted to become __. I’m sharing this photo to support the United Nations Year for the Elimination of Child Labour, because I believe kids should dream now and work later. I challenge @(tag Name 1), @(Name 2), @(Name 3) to do the same. #EndChildLabour2021″
This month I continued to heal from all my surgeries, raised awareness for Fairtrade Ethical Ramadan 2021 and participated in two webinars,
the first webinar was a round table discussion about Social Enterprise in the UAE. the second was about 'Periods in a Pandemic.'
