– Islamic religious leaders have advised  Muslim faithful to desist from posting photos of food on social media during Ramadan 
– The religious leaders said posting photos of food during the holy month showed arrogance 
– The Imams said Ramadan is supposed to be a month of prayer and not a time for people to show off the kinds of food they eat 
Muslims observing the fast during the holy month of Ramadan have been advised by religious leaders not to post photos of food on social media.
The religious leaders (Imams) from Nairobi said posting the pictures of food on Facebook and Instagram was being inconsiderate to other Muslims.

Imam Juma Nasir one of the religious leaders said posting photos of food during Suhoor (dawn) and Iftar (Evening) meals was being insensitive to Muslims who could not afford proper meals.
“We urge our brethren to desist from posting photos of Iftar and Suhur on social media, hundreds of Muslims have only tea and bread for iftar,” said Imam Juma Nasir.

The religious leaders said during Ramadan some Muslims consume more food than they need.
Instead of giving the food to the less privileged who can only afford tea and bread this days some Muslims just throw food away.
The Imam said during Ramadan, Muslims must show generosity and engage in prayers. 
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar in which Muslims fast for the whole month.
Ramadan usually starts after the moon is cited and fasting commences in honor of the revelation of the holy Quran to prophet Muhammad.
