Last quote about Ramadan

Paul Dodgson
I only have to think about myself not eating or drinking for 19 hours. This is not to be taken as a precedent for all trials involving devout Muslims. The date was fixed administratively but no consideration had been made for Ramadan. I would not be confident for someone to stand trial if I looked up I thought he's not fit to be here. Your trial is going to take place at the Old Bailey either on June 26 or perhaps July 10.

Tariq Ramadan

What they want is to nurture this Islamophobia, to nurture this sense of alienation and frustration. This is why we have to stand, this is what I am saying to the Muslims around the world. Do exactly the opposite of what psychologically you would do, which is don't isolate yourself, don't be on the margins, come into the mainstream, be visible, be vocal, be the voice of the voiceless, of the silent majority that are all against what is happening.

Tariq Ramadan

I think there are many reasons, and the first one, of course, is the way they understand Islam or the way they were taught Islam, in a way which is a binary vision. And it is what we hear coming from Syria and Iraq and some violent extremist groups, (who) are saying Muslims are right so all the other people are wrong and then we are oppressed by the West, France, or by the USA, the West as a whole, and then there is a wrong understanding.

Tariq Ramadan

No, I don' t think as a whole it has to do with integration. I think the great, great, great majority of French Muslims, European Muslims, are part of the society. And look at the reactions – it is just a complete consensus coming from all the communities in the West condemning what happened. I think it is very marginal and has nothing to do with the long process. In historical terms the fact that Muslims are now part of the Western and the European society is a fact and we have to avoid coming back every time with the same question.

You live in Britain at the moment. How do you see the difference in the two countries, is there a difference in the way they treat their Muslim communities?

Tariq Ramadan

No, I think generalising such statements is completely wrong. France is not racist even though we have racists in France.

Isabelle Kumar - Euronews

Do you think it's one of the objectives of the terrorists to create this division, to create this Islamophobia and thus engender more radicalisation?

Isabelle Kumar - Euronews

Is Islam being interpreted in an increasingly violent way? There is a very frightening strand of the religion that is developing. Do you think that is here to stay?

Tariq Ramadan

I think we don't know what could happen. This is once again very marginal compared to the huge majority of the Muslims.

Fatima Bai

The month of Ramadan in here, and of course we have to fast, but what are we to eat? Perhaps we should be content if we can afford to buy anything to eat, but so far I have bought nothing. Everything seems to be too expensive.

Agostino Miozzo

They all expressed a desire for 'business continuity'. That means the previous government international obligations will be respected and domestically all civil servants and workers will return to work. When I was in Tripoli I saw a text message that had been sent to all mobile phones in the country. It urged everyone to go back to work at the end of Ramadan.

Valérie Gauriat - Euronews

The bombing is dictating how Ramadan will be marked this year in Gaza. Despite speculation, few doubt their prayers will be enough to silence the shelling for good. Whatever happens, the festival of Eid will be one of bitterness.

Hamid Karzai

Today we, the Muslim world, especially the people of Afghanistan, remember the people of Palestine, in Gaza, who are suffering such brutality. They are being killed night and day.

Ibrahim Afridi

"I feel happy and good to see that I am really achieving the goal of self-restraint. What motivates me is that fasting is the only worship which is for Allah alone,"

Yaser Javed

The longer hours of fasting is a challenge for me in many ways. As I am a student and a part-time worker, it gets hard for me to cook for myself, to study and to get my work done while I'm fasting till 9pm.

Abdel Hamid Ramadan

Unemployment is increasing and people are tired; the people who they're calling 'old regime remnants' in the square, all these people are civilised, university students, doctors, and they're all exceptional people. What the government is doing is unacceptable. The police are firing at us without any of us throwing a single stone; I am a witness. I swear to God, right now they fired without any of us throwing a stone.

Ralph Lee

Our hope for the whole thing really is to draw attention to a significant minority in Britain. There are nearly three million Muslims in Britain. This will bring a bit of attention to the experience of Ramadan and what they are going through in this period.

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Egyptians are considering Ramadan as the beginning of a new phase, to put aside their differences and promote the values of tolerance and love on a social level, hoping that a better tomorrow takes them out of the economic and political crises.

Ibrahim Afridi

I feel happy and good to see that I am really achieving the goal of self-restraint. What motivates me is that fasting is the only worship which is for Allah alone.

Imam Zaid Shakir

Who do you wish to please? Your Nafs (desires), your country or Allah?

Imam Zaid Shakir

It is not permissable for a Muslim athlete to break his or her fast for reasons of athletic competition.

Mohamed Elhamy

The Eid festival is not just about prayers and coming together it's also about food. Egyptians share a special sweet kA'AEK with friends and relatives.

Mansour Mansour

Most shops, especially the bigger supermarkets know that the business stakes are high and they play the game too; all month these books are put at the front of the shelves.

Mathias Michenaud

We've gone from a general market of fairly large families who cook at home and look for raw materials to cook with, to a clientele of smaller families, people who work and who share with non-Muslim consumers the need for easy-to-prepare, microwavable goods.
