What is Ramadan? Why do we observe it as Muslims?

Ramadan Mubarak to my sisters and brothers who is oberving. I am sharing some details about Ramadan to my friends who did asked me about it recently.

🤷What is Ramadan and what we do as Muslim in Ramadan? 🌙🤲👇

✅Ramadan is the holiest month of the year in Islamic culture. For Muslims, it’s a time for spiritual reflection and growth, to help those in need, and to spend time with loved ones. It’s also a time when Muslims around the world fast during daylight hours for the whole month of Ramadan. Muslims observe this sacred month of Ramadan to mark when Allah sent an angel to Prophet Muhammad to reveal the Quran, the Islamic holy book, in 610 AD. This revelation is known as the “night of power” or ‘Laylat Al Qadar’ in Arabic. Ramadan is also a time for unity and spiritual reflection and Muslims spend time praying, reciting the Quran and doing good deeds.

👏Muslim donate to charity, spend time with loved ones, and avoid lying, gossiping and fighting.

😇Fasting is important during Ramadan as it allows Muslim to devote themselves to their faith, get closer to Allah and learn patience and compassion.
Fasting is usually done by all Muslims except those who are sick, pregnant, lactating, menstruating, elderly or travelling. If you miss fasting days you can make up for them throughout the year.

👍The fasting is done between sunrise and sunset. During this time, practicing Muslims are not allowed to drink water or eating any food.

🤲Our Beloved Prophet said: “He who is desirous that his means of sustenance should be expanded for him or his age may be lengthened, should join the tie of relationship.”. – Sahih Muslim.

🧑‍⚖️Islam law clearly states on giving full support to all members of the Islamic/non Islamic community to fulfill one of its greatest teachings; to come hand-in-hand and empower one another as unity, to be sufficient as a community, where rich Muslims support their vulnerable sisters and brothers in Islam, to help them live the decent life they deserve.

🎉At the end of fasting month, a special three-day festival called Eid al-Fitr (the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast) marks the end of Ramadan. It begins when the first sight of the new moon is seen in the sky. It’s a joyous occasion, with Muslims celebrating the end of fasting and giving thanks to Allah.
