Ramadan is here, it is a time to get closer to God, a time to sacrifice one's pleasure for intimacy and growth with God, it is a time for families to bond spiritually, there are so many physical and spiritual benefits of this moment.
Ramadan is more than the fasting though, it is more about self improvement and a time when people put effort on knowing the teachings of Islam. The football world are very aware of this importance and many have shown support by wishing Muslims around the world Ramadan Mubarak.
At this time,people involved in the fast are to abstain from food and drink from dawn to dusk, when the sun sets, people are to break with a communal meal known as Iftar. Many footballers will engage in the fasting even though they will be playing football, that is one of the sacrifices.
Many football clubs have also shown support and they include Bayer Leverkusen, Burnley, Westham, AC Milan, Manchester United, Manchester City, PSG, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Aston Villa, AS Roma, Bolton, Arsenal, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, and Chelsea.
