In the Jewish faith, fasting can be done for a variety of reasons. You can fast when you mourn that someone died. You can fast to help you in your prayer, so you can experience God without distractions.
 You can also fast as a sign for repentance, to show God that you have done wrong, that you want to turn back to Him, and to ask for His forgiveness. This last kind is what I want to write about.

Some of my memories involving Ramadan were from my elementary and middle school years in Amman, Jordan. My brother and I attended a private Muslim School for a few years as it was highly regarded for education in the area we lived in at the time. Except for one other student, we were the only Christians amongst thousands of students. We were not required to attend “Dein,” or Religion class, teaching the Quran and Islam. We did still need to recite Surat Al-Fateha every morning at assembly though, and we did not mind.

Tao and Tawheed is dedicated to exploring the mysteries of faith, reason, and meaning. We aspire to provide articles and videos that stimulate the serious consideration of truth as seen through the lens of these and related ideas: logic, purpose, order, beauty, hope, love, morality, happiness, natural law, intelligibility, science, and divine revelation to expand the list. Our presupposition is that all these things exist and create the tapestry of reality. They are so fundamental they both govern and drive us whether we know it or not. And through the art of good thinking, metacognition and civil discussion they are discernible to us as the rational beings that we are. This is what makes humanness wonderful.

In the 1st century the Christian faith mushroomed throughout the Roman Empire despite waves of persecution against Christians. Unlike Islam, it spread without military force or any sort of violence perpetrated by Christians for three whole centuries. It was literally unstoppable, but why?! Because it was credible, and thousands of average people believed it even though they had nothing to gain and everything to lose during those three centuries. There is no other logical way to explain the growth of Christianity but that Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to the disciples and "more than 500 brethren at one time". (1 Cor. 15)

In this article I will talk about a famous event of history without naming the person to whom it is attributed. At least for a while. 
The event is a resurrection, or THE Resurrection. In theory, a resurrection is when a dead person comes back to life. THE Resurrection is when a particular dead person was purported to have come back to life. But who? Was it the Buddha? Was it Muhammad? How about Achilles? Could it be Osiris? Abraham Lincoln? Or maybe Superman?
