Hello, I am taking a class on World Religions and one of my assignments requires my interviewing a person of the Islamic faith. I am doing a paper on symbolism and the ritual of fasting in Islam, so if anyone would be kind enough to offer some information, I would appreciate it. I would be interested in your opinions on the formal doctrine of your religion with regard to Ramadan and symbolism as well as your personal understanding of these things, if there is any difference. Basically I am trying to incorporate someone's personal involvement and understanding of these things into my paper. If possible, I would also like to include that person's age, status and opinions, etc. Thank you so much to anyone who may be able to provide assistance.
