In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the children that this story takes place during the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is a holy time for Muslims during which they don't eat any food or drink any water from sun-up to sun-down. Every day for a month, they break the fast with a large meal at the end of the day, often shared with friends and family. One reason for this fasting is to develop empathy for people who are hungry because they have no food. Giving charity is an important part of Islam (one of its five pillars) and is an important part of Ramadan. The main character in this story is Mullah Nasruddin. A Mullah is a Muslim religious teacher or leader.
