“A polite reminder. Hum roza rakh ke kisi doosri Insaan pe ehsaan nahi karte. Hum Roza apne Aur apne Khuda ke liye rakhte hain (We don’t fast for another being but the Almighty, nor it is a favour to another being. We fast for ourselves and our Lord. Therefore, it’s not right to get cranky or angry over someone. Allah doesn’t want your empty stomachs.)”

The actress further stated that the month of Ramadan teaches the lesson of patience, while people unleashing anger during fast overrides the prime intention of fasting. She asked people to refrain from reacting in anguish since they might invalidate their fast, to ponder over the true essence of fasting and to avoid belittling other with their actions.

“Ramadan is about sabr, patience and appreciation. If you’re going to fast in the name of your lord and act like you’re righteous and belittle or throw shades on others. Maybe you should reconsider why you’re fasting,” the Parwaaz Hai Junoon star added. Khan explained that the least everyone can do is try to remain calm and be kind towards the people around them.

“At the end, we’re all human. We all have flaws. Least we can do is try to be a better version of ourselves. Be kind people. Be patient. Have sabr with people around you, have sabr and be kind to your parents, your friends, your co-workers, and your neighbours.”
