'British Muslims and Ramadan'
Ruqaya Izzidien, Bikya Masr, British Muslims and Ramadan "Ramadan for British Muslims can also lack the atmosphere that you find in the Arab world. If you want baklawa you have to go on a Lord of the Rings-esque mission to find those precious things. Not that Ramadan is just about the food, but the Egyptian ambiance is definitely missing over here. And if you live in a village, as opposed to a city, you’re probably the only Muslims around."
