Sexual deprivation vs. other kinds of deprivation..

During the holly month of Ramadan, a Muslim is supposed to deprive his/her self of all the pleasures of the flesh I.e., eating, drinking..etc. which’ll give him/her a first-hand experience of the pains of the poor and the not-so-fortunate I,e, the deprived! Thus, creating a charitable, closely tied community.

This made me think of the following:
-1-first thought
if: Hunger and thirst are supposed to make you sympathize with the poor and the-have-nots
if: Being weakened by hunger is supposed to make you sympathize with the sick
then: But was abstaining from sexual activities supposed to make you sympathize with the sexually deprived? For example, to be more tolerant to sexual discrepancies.. such as adultery! Was that what God intended?..
it seems so logical to me.

-2-second thought
Why doesn’t anybody try to help this neglected category of the deprived? You see good people -Muslims and non-Muslims- collecting charity money to feed, cloth, cure the poor and the sick.. but never to help the sexually deprived , why? Why not establish a new charity that helps the sexually deprived? They certainly do deserve helping as much as the poor and the sick …

P.S.: hmmm… forgive my strange ideas.. I’m going thru “strange” times.

    The term (sexulay deprived) is hard to explain ,we in our arab socities has a schizophrantic situation where any adult shouldn't be sexually deprived but our religion makes it so and many has nothing to do but to abide to God's orders ,many will ask (why those adults will not get married then?) but there's alot of economical factors that makes marriage in most arab & muslim countries a hard or very hard thing that takes alot of time to achieve ,that simply paralyzing since if we shouldn't do adultery behaviours we should do it in the RIGHT way that our religion tells us about ,but how can we do it when it's very hard?

    If you think that being sexualy deprived during Ramadan will make you sympathize for those who is really sexually deprived all the time I think this is incorrect ,nobody thinks about it in this way cause having sex is a very personal experience that differes from person to another unlike other semi automatic actions like eating or drinking ,every human has his/her own sexual fingerprint if there's something like that ,beside that you can't feel symapthy for them because they shouldn't be deprived in the first place ,why in our countries there will people with nearly 30 years old who never had sex in their entire life? ,isn't this a crazy thing even if it's because of religious reasons?

    (P.S.: hmmm… forgive my strange ideas.. I’m going thru “strange” times.)
    -these are not crazy ideas at all .it's very interesting topic and I thank you for bringing it up for discussion ,but why you said that you goimg through strange times? ,anything wrong?

    “If you think that being sexualy deprived during Ramadan will make you sympathize for those who is really sexually deprived all the time” I do think that. And the more I think about it the more I’m convinced that this is the reason God asked us to refrain from sex in Ramadan and not only from food and drink.

    “sex is ….. unlike other semi automatic actions like eating or drinking” I believe that when a person is deprived from sex, just as when deprived from any of these other basic needs, it turns into an “automatic” instinct kind of action and not a matter of mere pleasure.

    “because they shouldn't be deprived in the first place” I totally agree.

    And by the way, I don’t mean the sexually frustrated people . I’m talking about the sexually deprived. (Totally deprived) To make it clearer; in a Muslim society any person who -for one reason or another- doesn’t get sex from the marriage institution is supposed to refrain from getting it else where, right? Those are the people I’m talking about, the ones who aren’t getting sex from marriage and as good God-obeying Muslims they ain’t getting it else where. Off course supposing they do exist nowadays !
    people trapped in a sexless marriage, youths who are not yet in a suitable age for marriage, or young men and women who are not yet married for any reason whether it’s economical reasons or …

    Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
    I have read through one history
    Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

    People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

    A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

    ". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

    "And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

    "When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

    "I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

    For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
