The Holy month of Ramadan is well and truly upon us, and here in Pakistan, the rozas are proving to be a real test. Scorching heat during the day, coupled with hours of load-shedding right when you really need it, hasn’t made the start of Ramadan any easier. Worry no more, for Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho is here to cheer your Ramadan up.
The former World Cup winner has formed a close tie with Pakistanis of late. Earlier this year, he announced that he would take part in the Leisure League being staged in the country, sending Pakistani football fans into affectionate meltdown. Although the footballer hasn’t officially announced his retirement as yet, he is nearing the end of his playing days, but has been very active in the world of football. Just recently, he took part in the farewell match of Atletico Madrid’s Vicente Calderon Stadium. Here’s proof the man has still got it.

Since the turn of the Holy Month, several notable personalities of the world, both Muslims and non-Muslims can be seen endorsing the concept and riches of the Holy Month. Vin Diesel, commonly recognized as Dominic Toretto from the Fast And Furious movies franchise, sent a message to all his fans around the world regarding the blessing and concept of the month, along with his friend, Rapper French Montana, who is a Muslim.
Manchester United’s world record signing, Paul Pogba, who is also a Muslim, celebrated the coming of Ramadan after a long, hard and successful season with his club, which saw him lift two major trophies in a season, the League Cup and the Uefa Europa League, United’s very first victory in the second tier European competition. Pogba went to Mecca and performed Umrah.
No matter how hard the weather, and how much the thirst and hunger, do not let the yourself be deviated from the ultimate purpose of Ramadan; getting close to Khuda.
