Ramadan is a month in the Islamic Calendar. During Ramadan Muslims fast from sun rise to sunset. the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 lunar months in a year of 354 or 355 days. It is used to determine the proper days of Islamic holidays and rituals, such as the annual period of fasting and the proper time for the pilgrimage to Mecca. Each year my family fast and prays during this holy month. Most people ask me what is fasting? My mom always tells me that fasting is to cleanse the body and praying is to cleanse the soul.
My sophomore year my English class took a field trip to San Francisco Museum Of Modern Arts. We took a Marin Airporter to the museum. It was a fun bus ride because someone brought their speaker and were playing music and everyone was just having a good time. Once we got to the museum we had to break up into groups. I got lucky because my group was with all my friends and homies. Some of the art there was so basic and plain as if a non-artist could paint it too. There was this one painting that was just a canvas wit orange paint cover the whole thing.
After we visited countries in Europe, My family went to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage. we landed in Mecca around 2 in the morning and as soon we got to the hotel we got ready to had out to Masjid al-Haram, which is the most significant mosque for a Muslim. As a Muslim we pray toward the Kaaba, which is a building at the center of Islam's most important mosque, Al-Masjid Al-Ḥaram, in the city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is the most sacred site in Islam.
The night of new years my cousins and i decided to go out to celebrate. The morning after my family including my parents, sister and grandma had a flight to Switzerland. Coming wit us is my cousins family including his parents and sister. We had a long and tiring flight there but once we landed it was all worth it. As soon as we got out the airport and in a taxi to our hotel is stayed snowing. We knew that it was going top be cold but we didn't expect there to be snow.
My family and i went on a vacation to Tahoe. This included my 2 cousins and their families and my two uncles and their families. we rented a house on airbnb. The house had 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The car ride there was easy and didn't take that long. Once we got to the house and settled down everyone came together for dinner. At the dinner table we shared laughs, and stories about our lives and just having a good time. As dinner came to an end we all looked out the window to see that it was snowing. for the next 3 days we stayed in Tahoe my family and i had a lot of fun.
