About Ramadan

Page history last edited by Andriss Smith 13 years, 9 months ago

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calender, it's the Islamic month of fasting. Muslims in Islam and Makkah that participating most refrain from eating , drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natural from damn until dusk.The reason for fasting is to teach the Muslims patience, modesty, and spirituality

Also during Ramadan the Muslims ask for forgiveness for past sins pray for guidance, and help in refraining form everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. Since Ramadan is a festival of sharing and giving Muslims prepare special foods and buy gifts for their families and friends and for giving to the poor and needy who cannot afford it; this can involve buying new clothes, shoes and other items of need. Unlike American's calenders, the days of Ramadan's vary, moving forward about ten days each year. The most prominent event of this month is mostly fasting. Every day during the month of Ramadan, Muslims get up before dawn to eat Sahur , the pre- dawn meal, then they perform the Fajr prayer. They have to stop eating and drinking before the call for prayers starts until the fourth prayer of the day, Maghrib. Muslims may continue may continue to eat and drink after the sun has set until the next morning's fajr prayer call. Then the process starts all over.

Great information here Andriss! Double-check a couple of small grammar errors in your writing and don't forget to complete your map as outlined on the class wiki. Good job!
