The practice of fasting during Ramadan is not only obligatory for a Muslim like Bahetikhan Gahep, but it is also a time to adjust her body's health.

The 63-year-old Kazak, who lives on a farm in Tacheng in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, has fasted during Ramadan all of her life and says she will continue to do so as long as her health allows.

"Ramadan is the time to get rid of the harmful substances that have been ingested into the body, so it is good for the body's health," she said.
