This Ramzan, it is necessary that we understand that the purpose of fast is not just to abstain from food but also learn to be tolerant and patient from indulging in wrong habits or unkind thoughts. Actress Ushna Shah gave a beautiful example of how an instance of inter faith harmony can help people in difficult time. She tweeted that when she was at a salon and needed help in performing wuzu so that she would perform her prayers on time, it was Hindu and Christian girls who helped her complete the process. Such an instance of harmony does make us think how Pakistan would be a more kinder country to live in if we taught people to respect other people for being people rather than judging them for their religion or caste.
A Christian & a Hindu helped me pray Asr just now & set an example of tolerance.
At nabila salon, makeup artist 4 today (who is Hindu) held up faucet so I could perform Wudu easily & other makeup artist (did my makeup last night), who is Christian, spread out the Janemaz for me.
