I admit to knowing very little about the holy month of Ramadan, so I reached out to two of my students, a father and daughter, who I knew were observing Ramadan. It was great for me to get a deeper understanding of the religious and cultural aspects of Ramadan and learn more about the family’s background.

Fazeel was born into a Mauritian Muslim family in Greenwich, London. He grew up in Mauritius, worked in the UK, and now lives in the USA.

Iman was born in England but has grown up mostly in the United States. She knows several languages and is interested in postcolonial literature which stems from her upbringing.
