I took the number of pages, divided by 27 (I wanted to finish by the 27 day of the month), and kept that pace up every day. Worked out rather well.

One thing to know is that the Qur'an is broken down into 30 parts, with one part read every night of the lunar month. This might help with pacing it out! Most translations of the Qur'an neglect to keep this aspect though. I recommend the translation from Muhammad Asad. Good luck and God bless.

As-salamu aleikum

The US and the world is full of people with opinions; opinions that they can not logically support. You have encountered those people, even among those you respect. Kind of eye opening, huh!

I am kind of live, let live person. But it concerns me a lot that the Islamic leadership is not more vocal on a day to day basis, in taking a stand against violence of any kind. Now, I know Christianity, in centuries past, has blood on its hands, but I think that religious violence would be condemned by the Pope, and other Christian leadership.

No matter what, I think Ubuntu is one more way to draw people together, so they come to value our similarities, while tolerating our differences.

Keep up the good work.
Steve.

The rest of the time, I took the medication before sunrise and after sunset.

Reading your post has helped these emotions a lot. Please keep posting the updates, I'd love to hear how it goes for you.

I was fasting first time when Ramadan was in the winter which means it was a pretty short time between breakfast and breaking fast (wow :)) I was in high-school and was braking my fast very often.
Regarding the cold, don't know if you are familiar with the rules for breaking the fast. Here you can find some info http://www.muslimconverts.com/ramadhaan/fasting_illness.htm.
May God give you and your family the best.
