Maybe you should try it and see for yourself. :) Fasting Ramadhan is a time of spiritual reflection by abstaining from food and drink from dawn to sunset it teaches you self-discipline. Also, during this time you can understand how other's may feel who are less fortunate. In my opinion it also teaches you to be thankful and grateful for the food that you have. It's a time to reflect and work on the self. It's very rewarding. It's truly a very special time.
