Hartley then highlighted the challenges she is facing while fasting and also termed the practice “very hard”.

“We have just broken our fast now after we fasted all day. I have had some dates and some salad. We can eat till 4 am and then we don’t eat again till 6:40 pm the next day. It is hard, so hard,” shared Hartley.
