Day 5 - Wajahat Ali: “Ramadan Is a State of Mind”
Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 5:39]
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
Wajahat Ali, the fifth voice on this fifth day of Ramadan, is a practicing playwright and writer who first trained as an attorney. He’s a first-generation, Pakistani-American who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. Unlike our first Ramadan story with Samar Jarrah, one of his fondest memories takes place outside the United States, in Mecca, with hundreds of simple gestures of kindness and beauty.
Check back on this blog each day or on our Facebook page to hear a new voice in our “Revealing Ramadan” series. If you’re the on demand type or simply need a more automated form of listening, we’ve produced a special podcast feed that’s available now. Oh, and a special show too!
