5 Reasons Why Nigerians Love Ramadan

For the next 29 or 30 days, Muslim faithful in Nigeria and in different parts of the world will abstain from food and drink from dawn to dusk. Ramadan is one of the key tenets or pillars of the religion and many Nigerians can wait for it to start. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency shares reasons why Nigerians love fasting.

Free food

There is so much to eat and drink during fasting especially when it is time to break the fast. Many mosques dish out free food that even non-Muslims come around to eat.

Save more

Since you will spend less, there is every likelihood that you will save more when compared to the days you are not fasting.

No flirty eyes 

This is for men especially. They are encouraged to lower their gaze and be more conscious of what they look at. This is because lusting over a woman and almost undressing her with their eyes may render their fast null and void.

Less smoking and drinking

Muslim customers who drink and smoke will not patronise bars for the next month. It is an opportunity for them to quit these habits that are not permissible in the religion. Regardless, some people cannot resist the temptation as they go in the evenings after fast to take a whiff.

They are more spiritual

It is during Ramadan you find people who do not pray nor open their Qu’ran performing these acts of worship. They discover their spirituality.
