As you can see, the sun is setting here officially at 7:31pm showing you an assistant coach with the Celtics pointing to their watch, probably indicating that very thing, Kyrie Irving going to the back now we all know that he has fasted in the past he has said publicly he had to wait till sunset before he can intake any food or liquid and as we just told you, sunset just past I spoke with an athlete who has played during Ramadan while he was observing. And he told me that when he played games, and the sunset happened during the game, he would in fact go and get something to eat immediately, something small and light, high and sugar, normally fruits like grapes or oranges to

00:00:35--> 00:01:18

give him a quick injection of energy. Because you guys, it's been 13 hours and 36 minutes since sunrise and sunset, if he is fasting that entire time, no food, no liquid and that includes water. Let's get into you talk also about about Kyrie Irving, the famous basketball player, Kyrie on a personal note, you have said that you are fasting for Ramadan, which for those who are unaware means no food, no water from sunup to sundown. How do you muster the energy to go out and score 34 points with very little nutrition in your body? Well, it's a journey with God. And I'm not alone in this I have brothers and sisters all around the world that have passed and with me, we hold our prayers and

00:01:18--> 00:01:55

our meditation is very sacred. What do you think when you see someone like that? A lot. He talks about fighting for freedom. But recently also you see him somebody who the news reported on him fasting during Ramadan and being able to score at such a high level. What do you think is someone who's not who's not yet mostly non Muslim? You know, when you see something like that, what are your thoughts impressions, as far as the Ramadan, the fasting and Islam? You know, as somebody as I grew up, I really respect first of all, I'm into health and stuff, and I understand the you know, health benefits to fasting. But I respect the discipline of Muslims. And I think that Christians in

00:01:55--> 00:02:34

America, they don't have the discipline they had 5060 years ago, and I think that's what's destroying, you know, Christian America is that the discipline compared to old Christians is like non existent. So, you know, Muslims, the, the discipline to fast and the health benefits of it, and also the, you know, service to God and the, the constant appreciation of it. I think that's honorable and I yeah, I think I think it's it's definitely tough to play at a high level like hi Ray, because you know, you're doing sports against the best people and he's just, he's doing great, but I think his soul and his spirits in a great place and, you know, he feels like he won he beat
