In most parts of Bangladesh, Muslims perform Tarabi prayers in congregation in the mosque during the month of Ramadan

During Ramadan, one has to abstain from food and drink for a long time. That is why people can be affected by various physical complications including dehydration. He will be more likely to suffer from dehydration while fasting during the long and hot days of Chaitra this year.

Sajjad Hossain, Consultant, Department of Medicine, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, says that dehydration can lead to serious heart failure or low blood pressure.

“People who are fasting should take care that dehydration does not happen in any way while fasting. Especially the elderly. If they drink enough water regularly, they can be free from this problem,” he told BBC Bangla.

Rubaiya Riti, a nutritionist at the private Faraji Hospital in Dhaka, says it will be hotter during Ramadan. That is why an adult must drink two and a half to three liters of water a day to protect himself from dehydration and to stay fit.

Burnt fried food in Iftar can make the body dehydrated.

“Drink enough water from Iftar to Sehri. At the same time, exercise is important. In this case, those who offer Tarabi prayers will benefit if they offer it regularly,” he told BBC Bangla.

According to him, starting from Iftar to Sehri, one should choose foods that have high water content.

“Many people do not want to eat after Iftar. This is not right. Dinner should be eaten in moderation and Sehri should also be eaten. Then water shortage will be less.”

Those who fast during Ramadan cannot drink water for a long time as they do not have the opportunity to eat during the day. On the other hand, a lot of water is excreted from the body through sweat, urine, and breathing. Due to this, there is a possibility of dehydration in the body.

Physician Sajjad Hossain and nutritionist Rubaiya Riti both say that one should drink enough water to keep the body fit and there is no alternative.

However, in normal times a person should drink at least one glass of water every hour. As a result, if he is fasting, then he should take water that he has not eaten during the day from Iftar during Sehri.

Physicians usually recommend one person drink up to sixteen glasses of water a day, depending on age, height, and weight.
