Food Wars in Ramadan

If you go to the hypermarket in any Arab country, especially in the Gulf, during Ramadan, even before, you will see long queues of shoppers pushing trolleys filled to form a mountain. This can be seen all Ramadan long, and I always think there is going to be a war that I have not heard of, yet!

Why this waste of food in Ramadan? Maybe some of the shoppers buy this much of food to distribute it in Masjids or Iftar tents, but why only in Ramadan people go crazy about food and cook so much dishes and eventually throw most of it in the garbage?

You know what? Ramadan is Eid for stray cats.

Allah says in the Holy Quran:

O Children of Adam! Look to your adornment at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but be not prodigal. Lo! He loveth not the prodigals. (31)

Quran 7:31

Who can eat that much in Ramadan?
