Muslim workers living in Spain are gradually getting understanding from their employers to meet the month of Ramadan obligations, during the working day. So they are asking for “flexibility, not privileges,” according to the president of the Union of Islamic Communities in Spain, Riay Tatary.
“This year it will be very hard, very hot. This Ramadan will be harder, hotter than in recent years as it falls in summer, which occurs only every 34 years. “
Tatary pointed out that this month is not a holiday for the Muslims in the sense of “fun”, but “worship of the Muslim faith” and to comply with provisions such as solidarity, especially in these times of crisis.
