Ramadan: Kosovo miners break fasting 800 meters under ground



Pictures and story of Kosovar miner, Emin Hasani and his colleagues observing Ramadan while working deep underground in the Trepca mine in Kosovo has provoked awe in the Muslim world as faithfuls continue to observe the holy month of abstinence.

A global news service went deep underground where the workers worked and lived to capture the report.

Despite the challenging conditions they face, such as extreme heat and lack of modern equipment, the miners come together to break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

They share a meal of dates, yogurt, pickles, and cheese, accompanied by black tea, after a day of fasting between sunrise and sunset.

Emin Hasani expresses a deep connection to Allah while working 800 meters underground, feeling closer to God as he recites his prayers.

The passage also highlights the struggles faced by the miners, including poor working conditions and the decline of the mining industry in Kosovo.

The Trepca mine, which used to employ thousands of workers and contribute significantly to the country’s economy, now faces challenges due to low mineral prices and reduced production.

The CEO of Trepca is seeking government support to improve working conditions and increase production in order to sustain the mine’s operations.

Despite the difficulties they face, the miners continue to observe Ramadan and find solace in their faith during their challenging work environment.
