Things Unseen

TX Date

24th May 2019

Millions of Muslims around the world fast in the month of Ramadan from dawn to sundown, but how many people know about its significance and what it really entails?

In this special edition, former Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid is joined by fasting veterans Tez Ilyas, a comedian; Hifsa Haroon-Iqbal MBE, a civil servant who sometimes represents the Queen; and Anita Nayyer a convert to Islam and a vegan.

Together they share their spiritual reflections and answer some of your burning questions on Ramadan – including the fasting rules, spiritual highs, spiritual lows, veganism and moon-wars. And although they’re all serious about their faith, there’s a lot of room for laughs!
