Reminder Of What Is Ramadan And Its Significance
Ramadan lasts between 29 and 30 days, during which Muslims fast, worship, give back to the community, especially the poor, and reflect.
Ramadan is the time of the year that all Muslims around the globe look forward to and prepare for the entire year. The month is filled with the holy spirit, peace, guidance, giving back and introspection for the believers.
Muslims fast from dawn to sunset throughout Ramadan, wish for amity and enlightenment, give back to society via charity or zakat or humanitarian actions like feeding the poor of the community, and reflect to enlighten their spirits.
The term Ramadan is known as a “ root ramida or ar-ramad, which means scorching heat,’ and it is one of Islam’s five pillars, along with Shahada (profession of faith), Salah (prayer), Sawm (fasting) Zakat (almsgiving), and Hajj (Pilgrimage).
Ramadan is supposed to be the anniversary of Prophet Muhammad’s (Praise Be Upon Him) initial revelation of the Holy Quran. Muslims believe that God revealed the words of the Holy Book to Prophet Muhammad for the very first time on the evening of Laylat al-Qadr. During Ramadan, it is claimed that all devils are chained in hell and that no one can interrupt those who are engaged in praying to Allah since the doors of Heaven are unlocked and the doors of Hell are closed up with the devils.
Muslims pray and practise fasts, known as sawm or fasts, as a sign of devotion to the Almighty throughout Ramadan. Muslims give up worldly pleasures, excessive behaviour, and spending during the month of Ramadan, and observe the fast alongside their friends and family. They get up in the morning before sunrise to eat Suhoor, which is a meal. Then they do not eat anything until sundown, keeping their fast, and they do not drink water or anything else during this time. The fasting Muslims break their fast in the evening with dates or something sweet, or simply with water, which is commemorated by the Maghrib prayer and called Fatoor or Iftar.
Taraweeh, or evening prayers, are conducted during which passages of the Holy Quran are recited. Intense prayers take held during the Laylatul Qadr, or Night of Power, at the end of Ramadan, which is considered the holiest evening of the year.
It commemorates the evening when the Quran was originally delivered to the Prophet Muhamad and occurs on the 27th day of Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr commemorates the conclusion of Ramadan.
