Fast forward to modern American Muslim life. Ramadan has taken on a completely different form, and Im as guilty as any in indulging and reinforcing it. Within our communities, invitations to iftars/social events get sent out weeks in advance, often overlapping so much that the truly determined iftar-hop in order to get them all in. In a month devoted to the abstinence of food, we paradoxically spend our days preparing it, and our evenings feasting on it, making sure to Instagram culinary creations that took the better part of a day to finish. We have turned our attention from celebrating the month inwardly to making sure others know about it. We spend an increasing amount of time blogging, lobbying and spending on Ramadan. The greatest shift, however, is in how Ramadan is perceived by society at large. I regularly get unsolicited Ramadan Mubarak! messages from friends, colleagues, even strangers both in person and on social media.
