Many cannot believe that popular actress Lindsey Lohan is a Muslim. Well, she recently confirmed her status when she revealed that she is observing the Ramadan fast.
On Friday, 26 May when Ramadan began, Lohan uploaded an Instagram post wishing her Muslim followers a happy Ramadan.
Also, during the Cannes Film Festival in southern France, Lohan and some of her close friends boarded the enormous 86 Chakra yacht. According to Scott Carlsen, Lohan's manager, the Hollywood starlet has been fasting for Ramadan while living in one of the largest yachts in the south of France.
"The ocean brings me a sense of peace and calmness and I am totally obsessed with boats and being on the water so this was the perfect choice for this holiday and to celebrate Ramadan," Lohan said in an email statement.
Lohan invited her friends over for a big feast after fasting for the whole day. Carlsen said that Lohan invited Adrien Brody, Jeremy Renner, Salma Hayek and Pamela Anderson to break the fast with her.
"I really enjoyed sharing feasts with friends; it brings a beautiful feeling of community and peace, it really made me happy and appreciative of life," Lohan said in a statement to Mic.
Ramadan is the one time of the year Muslims abstain from drinking water and eating food to foster sincere empathy to those who are thirsty, hungry and destitute. It's a period of spiritual growth and an opportunity to increase their philanthropic duties as Muslims. Fasting is also meant to commemorate the month when Prophet Mohammed received the first revelation of the Quran from God.
