About Ramadan Month

Ramadan is the month of fasting which is done during sun hours. Means during fast one can eat or drink before dawn and after sunset, only. How beautiful it is to see thousands of people uniting over a single act of worship, and an act that is pure in every form. Ramadan is that time of the year when Muslims all over the world unite over a single religious ritual, of fasting from dawn till sunset. They wake up before dawn, take a heavy meal of food (sehri) and then initiate their fast by offering Fajr prayers. At sunset, they break the fast with varieties of food and fruits prepared at the iftari. In the time between dawn and sunset, they have to abstain from food, water, liquids, sexual intercourse and all sorts of undesirable behavior. One has to pure himself from all evils and wrongs of a society. It is not only a test of physical patience in terms of hunger but also a spiritual test.

Ramadan basically falls in the ninth lunar month and initiates with the new moon sighting and ends with the sighting of the next month’s moon. This fasting period will be different for every area, depending on their respective timings. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam and is binding (Farz) on every Muslim from the age of 12. The obligation for fasting is mentioned in this Quranic verse;

“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain Taqwa [God-consciousness]. “– The Qur’an, Al-Baqarah: 183


Fasting is essential for all healthy people and some exceptions are allowed for people who fall in either of the categories below;

  1. Children below the age of maturity. Girls reach the age by 12 and boys reach it by 15. Before that age, they must fast for half a day or so, to develop a habit.
  2. Old people and those who are extremely ill are allowed to skip fasts. In lieu of that they have to feed a poor person for each day that is skipped.
  3. Women who are pregnant or menstruating can skip the days and make up for the days later.
  4. People who have tough labor jobs or are travelling can make up for their missed days when they have time later.

This leniency is there because Islam doesn’t want to put unnecessary burden on its followers. There are also some situations when the person accidentally or unconsciously eats or drinks something. In such a case his fast isn’t broken but instead a penalty has to be paid which is also known as kaffarah. In that kaffarah the person has to arrange food for poor people and take responsibility for their fasts. The Kaffarah differs for different situations and can be discussed with some learned scholar for details.

And a name of few random countries visitors checking currently include; India, Canada, Lebanon, Sudan, and Austria.

When a person fasts, it does not mean that he/she has to sit idle at home and wait for sunset. The person is required to continue his daily routine like any other day with usual chores. This is actually where the test of patience comes in that how does the person manage to stay away from food as well as bad behavior. As mentioned before, it is equally a spiritual revival as it is a physical ritual. Fasting is an amazing ritual and this can be deduced from the numerous benefits that it holds.
