A Look At Ramadan

Muslims are a little over a quarter through the holy month of Ramadan, which commemorates the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad. Ahmed Ali Akbar, host of Buzzfeed’s “See Something, Say Something” podcast, joins us to talk about the customs that make up Ramadan – and about how his participation in them has evolved through his life. His essay “I Don’t Know Why I Pray But I Keep Trying” appears on Buzzfeed.
