Subject: RE: BS: Anyone complaining about the UK heat?
LOL Richard! Wot mikes yer fink we got no taste eh?

Backwoodsman, it all depends which Muslims we mean. I knew several quite strict Egyptian Muslims, who told me that absolutely NOTHING must go in the mouth until nightfall, neither food, water, nor even chewing gum. My husband is a W African Muslim and he tells me 'no fluid until nightfall'. In temperatures of over 40 degrees in Ivory Coast! Surely, God doesn't require outright suffering and damage to health for His sake? But I mustn't say that, one has to respect people's religious devotion. (Husband no longer 'does' Ramadan, but I'd have no objection if he did.)
