  1. Ramadan is a very important time in the Islamic calendar and Muslims all over the world will be preparing to take part. Fasting is important during Ramadan as it allows Muslims to devote themselves to their faith and come closer to Allah or God.
    Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture.
    Muslims observe the month of Ramadan to mark that Allah or God gave the first chapters of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad in 610.
    If Ramadan is about having an impact on people’s inner qualities then this should be an outward manifestation of integrity kindness generosity honesty morality.
    Muslims believe that Ramadan teaches them to practice self-discipline self-control sacrifice and empathy for those who are less fortunate.
    More importantly it is about how we treat others. The nightly prayers that people attend during Ramadan facilitate this kind of spiritual meditation.

  2. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and is celebrated by Muslims all across the globe. Eid al-Fitr, also called the “Festival of breaking fast” celebrations will begin on May 23 and continue until May 24, however, the actual date may vary as per the moon sighting. The start date of any lunar Hijri month varies according to the sighting of the new moon by religious authorities, and since Eid al-Fitr also marks the first day of Shawwal month, it is celebrated on different days across regions.

    History

    It is widely believed that Prophet Muhammad got the first revelation of the Holy Quran during the holy month of Ramadan. Eid al-Fitr marked the end of fasting from dawn to dusk during Ramadan and the beginning of the Shawwal month. Eid al-Fitr is also celebrated to pay respect to Allah for providing strength and endurance during the month-long fasting rituals.
    Muslims across the globe celebrate Eid al-Fitr by taking part in prayers that are followed by a sermon soon after dawn. The day continues with devotees wearing new clothes, exchanging greetings by saying “Eid Mubarak”, which means “have a blessed Eid”, and also distributing sweets. Children receive gifts and money from elders which is called Eidi. The day is incomplete without a widespread food menu containing a variety of dishes including Biryani, Haleem, Nihari, kebabs and a dessert like Seviyan. As one of the five pillars of Islam, Zakat or giving alms to the poor is also practised on Eid.

  3. Fasting is the fourth pillar of Islam, Ramadan is the holiest month for Muslims. In Ramadan, Muslims are fasting from dawn to sunset. They are not eating or drinking anything so they feel with poor people how they live without any food or with a shortage of water. In Ramadan, they pay Zakah ( charity) to poor people to help them to survive. It is not compulsory for children, old people or people with health conditions. People who can not fast Ramadan due to health conditions can feed poor people. After Ramadan, Muslims celebrate Eid because they complete their fasting as requested. It is on Sunday this year. Normally celebrations remain for 3 days.

  4. Ramadan a time of spiritual reflection,self improvement and heightened devotion and worship.Muslims are expected to put more effort into following the teachings of Islam.The fast begins at dawn and ends at sunset.

    Hi,
    How are you doing? I am so excited about Eid. I am writing to explain why I fast during Ramadan.
    Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection and self improvement.
    All of us are required to stay away from food and drink from dawn to dusk for thirty days.
    Fasting during Ramadan means abstinence from all food and drink, including gum from dawn to sunset.
    All over the world we offer Qurbani which means sacrifice. It symbolises the repetition of Ibrahim’s sacrifice of a ram in place of his son .
    We end Ramadan and fasting on a celebration holiday called Eid.
    I look forward for the celebration of Eid.
    From your friend Osato
