Like the Italian, the Anglo-Catholic, and the Greek fasts, the chief effect of the « blessed month » upon True Believers is to darken their tempers into positive gloom. . . . The mosques are crowded with a sulky, grumbling population, making themselves offensive to one another on earth whilst working their way to heaven.
