Ramadan – a month of peace, self control, atonement and iftars. I’m sure many will agree with me when I say that this is my favourite month throughout the year. Not only do we get the chance to sit together on the dinner table with all our family, relatives and friends but also, a perfect time for us all to express gratitude for all that we’ve been blessed with.
