This is by no means a lean towards one religion or the other, but I just thought I'd share this wonderful moment I photographed a few weeks ago as local Muslim women observed Ramadan.
Fariha Kazi, left, Deanna Wathen, and Shereen El-Kadi share a light moment as Kazi has her hijab adjusted prior to breaking fast during the fourth night of Ramadan on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at the Manoa Mosque in Honolulu. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar in which Muslims worldwide observe as a month of fasting. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths. (The Honolulu Star-Advertiser/Jamm Aquino).
