  1. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, holds special significance for Muslims. During this holy month, they observe fasting, engage in reflection, and strengthen their relationship with God. Let me provide you with some details:
  • What is Ramadan?
    • Ramadan is the month when Muslims believe the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. It’s a time for spiritual growth, self-discipline, and acts of kindness.
    • Muslims fast during daylight hours, refraining from eating, drinking (including water), and other physical needs.
    • The pre-dawn meal is called suhoor or sehri, and the evening meal to break the fast is known as iftar or fitoor.
    • Reciting the Quran and performing extra prayers are also emphasized during Ramadan.
  • Why do Muslims fast?
    • Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which guide Muslims in their way of life.
    • The other pillars include the profession of faith, daily prayers, charity (zakat), and the pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj).
    • Fasting encourages spiritual reflection, empathy, and gratitude.
  • How long does Ramadan last?
  • Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha:
    • Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, is expected to be celebrated on April 10 this year.
    • Eid al-Adha, celebrated around 16 to 20 June, coincides with the later part of the Hajj pilgrimage. It commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son on God’s orders.
