Throughout the Muslim world, people fast during the month of Ramadan. All month a drummer walks each neighborhood in the quiet pre-dawn, waking its residents to partake in a blessed meal before the day's fast begins. This drummer is called amusaharati.
Najma lives in Turkey and dreams of becoming themusaharatifor her neighborhood - but a woman has never held the position. With colorful courage and support from her Baba, Najma's dream comes true...but will her neighborhood celebrate as much as she does?
Inspirational story of sincerity, determination, and believing in yourself.
