Ramadan Mubarak folks! It’s that magical 30 days where we’re all
hungry and sleepy and trying to be a better person. See
Something Say Something is celebrating this Ramadan with a
mini-series. And this first episode is all about fasting. Ahmed
talks to Kamelya Omayma Youssef, who grew up in Dearborn, MI, with
parents who didn’t fast. At a certain point as a teenager, she had
to figure out what she wanted to do. Then, Ahmed is joined by
comedian Aman Ali to talk about how he drove across the country six
years ago, breaking his fast in a new state and a new mosque every
night. And finally, we hear from former competitive Olympic
weightlifter Kulsoom Abdullah, about how professional athletes
train during Ramadan.
