991. Ramadan is a summer Muslim holiday in which people abstain from eating and drinking from dawn until sunset for an entire month. How would the observance of such a holiday impact your life? What might some of the difficulties be to keep up with it and why?

992. Also during the day, participants in Ramadan are supposed to avoid sinful behavior and speech. How successful do you think you'd be at doing the right thing and expressing kindness for an entire month straight during the day? What positive habits might you learn and why?

993. Ramadan is a holiday of self-control and self-discipline. What is a time that you had to exercise these traits? What do you think are the benefits of self-discipline and why?

994. Muslims observing Ramadan eat a pre-fast meal before the sun comes up called Suhoor. If you knew you weren't going to eat until sundown, what would you eat as your Suhoor and why? Would it be tough for you to get up early enough to get a meal in before sunrise?

995. Prayer is a major part of Ramadan. Do you think that prayer is an important part of a person's life? Why or why not?

996. Imagine that you overheard a friend or classmate praying for something that you might be able to help with. Would you try to help this person? Why or why not? If so, would you help the person anonymously or would you come out and tell him or her you were helping? Why?

997. Ramadan is meant to give observers a chance to reflect, especially on the plight of those less fortunate. For that reason, charity is a major activity during the holiday. If you had enough money and time to donate to charity, how would you use those resources and why? Why might one charity be more important to you than another?

998. Fasting is a part of other religions as well and is observed by the Jews on the holiday Yom Kippur. Why do you think fasting is an important event in multiple religions? What can one learn from fasting and why?

999. Imagine that you had to celebrate Ramadan on the same day as your birthday. You would not be able to eat cake or cupcakes brought in during class to celebrate. How might this be difficult for you? How would the meaning of your special day change?

1000. At the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate with the Eid ul-Fitr, a festival to break the fast. Have you ever celebrated a month-long accomplishment? If so, what was it and how did you commemorate your success? If not, write a story about succeeding at a major goal and celebrating its achievement with all of your friends.
