Ramadan is the month Muslims wait all year for. It’s a time when devils are chained and mosques are full of worshipers. But what does it mean if we find ourselves falling into familiar sins during this blessed month? How can we overcome that? And what does an ideal Ramadan fast look like? How can we make the most of the moments when we aren’t able to worship directly?

In this Ramadan special, host Mohamad Zaoud talks to Dr. Tamara Gray, founder of Rabata and senior fellow at Yaqeen Institute, about making the most of fasting.
