Food for the Soul

Ramadan has ended here in Jordan and around the Muslim world. Some welcome the end and others say its sad to think this time only comes once a year and they will have to wait until next year for its return.
“We need spiritual time in our lives,” Omar, the storeowner down the street from me, said after I asked him about how he felt at the end of Ramadan. “There are three things that we have in life; our mind, our body and our soul. We don’t make time in our lives for our soul.”
For some the end of Ramadan means a trip to the southern city of Aqaba during Eid-al-Fitr, where families take in the warmer temperatures and all the Red Sea Coast has to offer.
