Meet the Ramadan

Hello my dear readers and As-salamu alaykum!
My goal with this blog is to, besides enjoying writing, help you get to know with unknown concepts and things you might want to know about.
That's the reason why I'm writing this post - to help you to meet the Ramadan.



What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the 9th month in Islamic calendar and the month when Quran (the Holy Book) was released.

Why Muslims fast in Ramadan?
We, Muslims, believe in Allah who order us the things to do in the Quran and fasting is one of them. Fasting improves every Muslim's faith and patience.

How do Muslims fast?
There are two main parts of this : the Suhur (or pre-fast meal) and Iftar (meal which breaks fast). Suhur is a pre-fast meal done before the dawn and Iftar is a meal which basically breaks fast and is done after sunset. In the time between Suhur and Iftar, Muslims cannot eat, drink, smoke or have sexual relations.

Who can(not) fast? 
It becomes compulsory for Muslims to start fasting when they reach puberty, so long as they are healthy and sane, and have no disabilities or illnesses. Many children endeavour to complete as many fasts as possible as practice for later life. Exemptions to fasting are travel, menstruation, severe illness, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Muslim women who have mensturation cannot fast but they need to fast after Ramadan the days they missed.

Why is Ramadan so special?
As I said, it is the month when Quran was released, but besides that it is special because good deeds in Ramadan will be multiplied with by 70! That's why Muslims try their hardest to do good in this month such as being charitable, recite and teach Quran, preform obligatory prayers etc.

Which is the most special day or night of Ramadan?
Layla-tul-Qadr is the most special night of the whole year, not just Ramdan. In this night, if a man repent, all his sins are erased! That's the Night of Power, when the first verses of Quran were revealed to our Prophet Muhammad. Muslims don't know the real date of this night but we know that it is to be found in the last 10 odd days of Ramadan and it is better than 1000 months of worship. Muslims believe that on this night the blessings and mercy of Allah are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angels who also descend to earth.

I'm pretty excited about this month because my friends and I always organize Iftars and Suhurs together, we pray together and read Quran together. It's the month where the family is finally together, at least for Suhur and Iftar. It is the month when we love to visit our cousins and we all enjoy being Muslims because we believe in the award that's waiting for us - we just need to grab it!

To all of you non-muslims there, huge respect for you for reading this post and learning something about Islam, I hope this might stimulate you to try fasting for one day and tell us how it was because the medicine has proven that Muslim fast is the healthiest way to clean your organism from bad stuff and it also improves your psychological traits, helps you to improve being patient, and the best of all - to be thankful for everything you have and realize you have everything you need!

That was all for today! Thanks for reading again and I hope you've learned something new from me!
I love you all and see you next time!
xoxo

Bye,V

    1. Thank you girl!! :)
      It isn't really that hard if you fill up your time with interesting activities. I love to read books, watch movies or TV shows, as well as pray and read Quran while fasting. And ohh, I usually don't sleep at night so I sleep away the time in the day. :)xx
