The imam at the mosque calls a special fast and Mr Khan uses it to compete with Dave, the mosque manager. He is suffering badly, and the old double whammy of low blood sugar and a dodgy bladder means he is a ticking time-bomb.
Alia has a foreign exchange student staying, and Shazia has announced she has been offered a great job opportunity in India, which will mean more money and the chance to put down a deposit on a new flat. However, being away for twelve months will put her engagement to Amjad in jeopardy. Mrs Khan decides the only way to save their relationship is to pay the flat deposit for them, and she sends Mr Khan to the building society to secure the all-important loan.
Khan arrives for his meeting with the building society manager starving hungry and gasping with thirst, not perhaps the perfect conditions to persuade him to give him a loan.
