On Monday, 28 year old Ali Faruq forgot he was fasting and robotically devoured an entire ham and cheese sandwich positioned on a plate in front of him.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world fast from sunrise to sunset. However, many experience transitional challenges as they adjust to a new routine.
“It was 3 PM, and I just watched him in horror as he swallowed an entire ham sandwich down his pie hole,” said friend Rashid Wallace.
“I tried to stop him, but it just all happened so fast… so much to unpack. Do I call out his fast-nesia? Do I throw myself in between him and the hell-ridden, swine sandwich?!? Like how did that sandwich get there? Did he make it? I just froze and let out this whimper of defeat.”
“Oh crap!” Faruq exclaimed after realizing what he’d done. He then let out a three second-long burp as mustard still oozed from the side of his mouth.
Other friends observed Faruq was the first person they met who had Ramadan breath AND ham breath on the same day.
