Even my family members who did not do the regular five-times-a-day prayers fasted. The words were spoken with a bit more compassion, and folks ended arguments before they began by reminding each other that it was Ramadan.Getting out of bed was always a titanic struggle, but not on Ramadan mornings.We got to have a special treat on those days: date omelets.My mom, God bless her precious heart, would get up at 4 in the Ramadan morning and cook sahari for us.We got to have date omelets, which must have at least eight thousand calories.
