The blessed month of Ramadan is around the corner. In a day or two, we will be preparing for suhoor and iftar. But unlike the Ramadans that have passed by, this one will be different.
The coronavirus has turned the world upside down forcing us to remain quarantined inside our homes. That means, this Ramadan, there will be no congregational prayers in masajid, no Taraweeh and there will be no friends and families coming together for iftar.
This Ramadan, more than any of the previous ones, social media will play an important role in connecting people and building a sense of community online.
