The long fast: A young Puget Sound woman prepares for Ramadan

The fireplace of Amina Al-Sadi's home during Ramadan.

Presenting Amina on Ramadan, a three-part series sharing the life of a young Muslim woman in Puget Sound.

This year in the west, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan lines up with the summer solstice, and fasting days are the longest they’ve been in decades. Amina Al-Sadi is a 25-year-old American Muslim and Northwest native. Our series begins with her perspective on giving up food and drink during the longest days of summer.
