It’s the holy month of Ramadan again, the time of the year where Muslims all over the world abstain from food, sexual relations, and pretty much all worldly desires, to focus on spirituality and self-betterment.

This includes students in colleges and universities, who will have to refrain from food and drinks while attending classes and even, exams. This can be difficult, as some students will have to fast for longer hours during summer days and let’s be honest, college – even when you are not fasting – is tough enough as it is.

1. Ramadan, the return of this phrase to be explained

2. Also a good time to set #StudentGoals. You go, Pizza Gurl 🍕

3. NGL, it will be testing on some days

4. The thought of food does get in the way sometimes. We feel you, Usman, h and Maham

5. You can try, guys, but there’s no promise it will be reciprocated

6. College + Ramadan + Suhoor. Again, possible?

7. Well, this medical student thinks it’s possible. If a medic can do it, so can you!

8. But seriously, no amount of willpower can be enough to decrypt what “Ramadan Kareem” with a  💙 means.  (Ramadan Kareem means blessed or generous Ramadan)

9. So, here’s a summary in four words from this student

Ramadan Kareem, everyone!
