i wonder if the jordanian, or other muslim royals, actively engage in ramadan, by fasting, or other customs. i guess at the end of the day it's personal choice, just like wearing a yihab (which rania for example doesn't do), so wonder if they chose to do it. maybe this is part of the personal lives and it has never been confirmed/released.

Fasting is not a personal choice, it's one of the things you have to do if you can. You are only excused from not fasting if you are unable due to health reasons, travelling, pregnant. But then you get some who don't bother to do so. Whether you do or not, it's something that's between you and god and therefore nobody should judge you if you don't do so.

I just came back from a week in Marrakech (yes I know its not in Jordan) and the feeling as a million people have Iftar (break the fast) leaving the city all quiet and empty and then some hours later, as the silence is broken by the call to prayer from the many minarets, have all these people head towards the mosques like a tidal wave is unbelievable and amazing. I feel so privileged to have been able to witness it and although I'm not a Muslim I felt very close to G-d doing so.

I went to Morocco in April and read that it's the law there to participate in Ramadan, meaning that the Moroccan RF participate. (I hope you had a nice time in Marrakech, JR76!)

I think all of the other Muslim royals also participate in Ramadan, though I don't know for sure, but since most Muslims participate in Ramadan, I think it's likely that the royals do as well.

if you mean by participation in Ramadan fasting well i guess they have too unless they have health conditions like Dazz said but we can know for sure fasting and other religious obligationsis something between the pesrson and god nobody can judge.but what is sure all muslims royal Jordan,Morocco and so are very busy with engagements linked to the holy month.

JR76 i am happy you enjoyed our city and i hope to see you coming back soon.

Fasting is one of the 5 pillars of Islam (the others include daily prayers, and the hajj, both of which members of the JRF have been publicly observed performing on many occasions). It's importance cannot be compared to the hijab. I have no doubt Rania and her family fast during Ramadan. In fact, I recall a few years ago when she shared a picture of one of her family at iftar (breaking of the fast) and one of her kids fasting for the first time, it was most likely Prince Hussein.

It's good seeing Prince Hussein active while he is in Jordan. He is sure getting all the experience for his future role. It's also good to see the confidence in his father to put him as regent while he is away.

A great family photo as they break their fast.
Going a bit off topic but I recall seeing a Jordanian public service announcement for Ramadan that showed a man overeating everyday once the fast had ended. Naturally he was dealing with indigestion every evening during Ramadan. His wife was then shown scolding him for this and reminded him that it was not healthy to overindulge after a day of fasting.

Nice to see that the Jordanian royal family is eating something light and healthy.
