  1. Joel M. Alcantara Who liberated Kuwait? No doubt led by the US but it was a coalition of 32 countries!

  2. Lots of foreigners here posting Ramadan hate. I don't see what the big deal is. Abide by the host nation laws or go the F home – there is someone else willing to do your job and follow the host nation laws.

    If I was Kuwaiti, I would be rightfully pissed off at all the foreigners who think they are above the local laws. Just like I would be rightfully pissed off if a Kuwaiti drove on the shoulder of the highway in the USA.

    Ya'll need to get over yourselves and just simply respect the laws of the nation where you are working – it really is just that simple. Don't eat or drink in public during the restricted hours… how hard is that?

  3. Yeah, sweet, we liberated Kuwait from Iraq. So what? We liberated France from Germany too, so should we not abide by their laws when we are a visitor in their country? We are visitors in Kuwait and should respect their laws just as we expect visitors to the USA to respect ours. We don't get a pass for having liberated them – that thought process is fundamentally flawed and downright stupid.

    If you want to eat food or drink water or whatever then do it inside of your house or in a private place. Just because you are not Muslim or agree with Islam does not mean you should argue with their laws or think their laws are stupid.

    How hard is it to just do the right thing? The right thing being to follow the laws and not voice your complaints about them.

  4. Assalamualaikum friends.Iam continuesly doing fast.every day my friend in my room smoking cigretes even i concentrate on my fast for Allha.but one day i dont know what happend to my mind iam also smoke with him and do nt put fast for that whole day iam crying nd crying because i want to get blesses of Allha in this month.cause for to say this we do nt want to do that but some environment changes us.everything like this.it my mistake also my friend mistake that he know iam in fast even he smoke everyday infront of me.so that is the reason in kuwait nd saudi that man can never chage their faith by looking others.actually they help the muslim to didnt change their mind by looking others one and also fined to those who disturb to fast-people.

  5. Paula Domingues plus the fact that who liberated kuwait from iraq?is it their muslim brothers and sisters or Christians?

  8. Samer Alkhateeb,You can defend your stance without insulting. Lots of respect… I see. Of course I know what I'm talking about; because of my job I'm in touch with Muslim citizen daily and from all over the world.

  9. Real Man says:

    Slap on ur face for such thinking follow rules or kick out ur self

  10. Real Man says:

    Where u live you to follow rules too so If u don't like that go back don't stay here and when these Arabs visit any part of the world they follow rules too of that country

  11. I'm neither Christian nor Muslim, but being that I spent almost 10 yrs in Kuwait as a contractor, I've gone through the Ramadan experience. As an American, we were to respect it, but as Rufus Fraga touched on, you have those who are fake and hide to consume food and beverages. I've witnessed it for myself. In the U.S., U.K., parts of Europe, Asia, and parts of the Middle East, most folks of other religions and expatriates aren't made to suffer like they do in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. If one is to fast, then not all should be forced to publicly to refrain from their normal routine. It's up to you as an individual to exercise restraint and discipline based on your religion. I've been a Christian and I have read the Quran and respect it, but I don't claim religion because religion is a form of control by man, not by God. So, if you're truly one to fast as your religion requires, then, it's up to YOU to do what's required.

  12. They have condition your minds to insanity but how sad non of you can see the truth.

  13. Abuashraf Quazi most know Ramadan is to allow the rich to appreciate the situation of the poor. Which is why the law is wrong. Do we hide away from poor people when we eat? No we eat openly infront of them everyday. So if you really want to experience life of the poor then others could eat in front of you. People who preach-on about Ramadan neglect to realise that.

  14. Goran Ugrinoski separation of church and state allows for respect and accomodation of all religions. To view otherwise is sadly uneducated. Besides, doing things for God should be a decision you make not a law you abide, otherwise I don't think it is the same in the eyes of God.

  15. Very good job Kuwait law Thank you

  16. Joe Joe says:

    The law says, all people should not consume in public. When I follow this law, I don't pretend to be Muslim. I am just simply obeying the law. So do NOT shame anyone for following the law that your country enforces! Only shame people if they decide to make the decision of breaking the law! So please do not shame us! And if you really want to, just put cameras in our apartments to ensure we are not consuming privatly if that's waht you prefer.

  17. Mohammad Rafiq Butt You will never be free till you follow Jesus Christ. You will never be arrested for eating food anywhere, you will never be judge by anyone but will be love and respected and encourage everyday by God's love. You will find true harmony with your soul and the spirit of God will dwell in you.

  18. Human is a human always not perfect even muslim or non Muslim,…..Muslim must need to follow Islam but Islam will not follow muslim…..try to study Islam and you will know the truth and truth will set you free……

  19. According to Hadith,nobody knows whose muslim fastings except Allah,

  20. Samer Alkhateeb So is justly

  21. Naresh G. Kalal now you truly understand my point Naresh G. Kalal

  22. @mabel my country is great and very respectful my country welcomes any religion, so don't be stupid and talk nonsense, yahoos is religion too so stop hating if you are good Muslim mr. Butt

  23. Is it for Muslims ,, Or for all religion people l,,

  24. Roel Daito says:

    I thought its Ramadan and someone so loud to say the word "SHIT". Is that included in your fasting?

  25. Mabel Perez all Muslim country recpct all Relegan only Muslim not love yahoodi…. it's clear

  26. Emile Salman I am proud I am butt but becare Muslim is Muslim..I am Muslim also proud …

  27. Mohammad Rafiq Butt no wonder your name is butt

  28. Your country doesn't respect other religions but Muslims demand that their beliefs and costums are respected in countries like mine. It's called "FREEDOM OF WORSHIP"

  29. Samer Alkhateeb Dear we are Islamic country's also pakistan lot of Relegan but everybody respect eachother relegan … Rumdan not allow to eat on the road …

  30. In Syria and Lebanon we dont have this law, cause we also have christians

  31. Fake and pretenders acting like they are so holy and obeying Allah. Many of you who supporting these things hides in your homes and eat while you should be fasting. I think the person who stood publically and ate is way better in the sight of God than you who is smoking, drinking and eating in hidden and come outside in public acting like you are the best Muslim

    Who is breaking the law here? Are you worrying about breaking human law or God's law? Shame on you

  32. Yes! You must abide the law.
    The fasting is to know in between rich and the poors diviation,

  33. all Muslim country same this law active
    but different punishment
    you can eat in your room what ever but not public areas ..its Rumdan recspect…must be

  34. Kyle Evans It's the law. Don't like it, move out. As for "us" accomodate "them", it's because "we" don't give a shit about the religion, and they do. If "we" did, it'd be in the law and "they" would have to obey. Right?

  35. Kyle Evans says:

    Like they respect the traditions/beliefs of countries they go to/move too? I think not it's one rule for everyone in there countries, when they come to ours they couldn't give a toss ours and complain we don't make exceptions to laws to accommodate them!

  36. anything chewing gum cigar food and beverage its forbidden in time of ramadan we all need to respect that..

  37. Does this include drinking coffee also outside during Ramadan? Or only food

    Thanks
