I Love This Muslim SLer's Stylish Tribute to Ramadan

Muslim avatar

I love this screenshot by Strawberry Singh, which I'm sampling above, because Ms. Singh is celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in real life (or moodily fasting through it, may be more accurate), and takes a Middle Eastern-themed photo like this as part of the holiday. "I enjoy taking a picture for Ramadan and Eid every year," as she puts it. And in the process, with a single swanky screenshot, undermines so many stereotypes about who Muslims are, and what they do and like online. Click here to embiggenize Ms. Strawberry's screenshot, and why not wish her a happy Ramadan while you're there.

Beautiful work.

I like this tightly cropped version too.

Very nice.

But there are no stars or planets between us and the Moon. (The Algerian flag has the same error.)

Berry's Flickr set of these Ramadan tribute images is filled with classic beauty and her blog with informative links. Her images and blog are of high educational value.

We know there are no stars between us and the moon, it's called artistic license.

And a saying of Muhammad for Ramadan:

The Prophet said, "I looked into Paradise and found that the majority of its dwellers were the poor people, and I looked into the (Hell) Fire and found that the majority of its dwellers were women."
