Fazal Sheikh – Ramadan Moon
"Ramadan Moon" is a timeless and poetic evocation of one woman's plight: It draws together passages from the Koran about the holy month of Ramadan with Seynab, the protagonist, and her memories of Mogadishu before the war, the story of her flight to the Netherlands in search of asylum and the history of the Dutch treatment of Somali asylum seekers. Gazing into the night sky during the month of Ramadan, she dreams of the husband and her daughters who she has left behind in Somalia and seeks comfort from the Koran in her prayers.
