Ramadan 2015

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and the festival is celebrated for entire month. Ramadan 2015 will be celebrated from 18th June to 17th July and will end with the day of Eid-al-fitr.

Ramadan is celebrated by Muslims all over the world. The month of Ramadan is a month of fasting for Muslims. According to the Holy Quran, Muslims must fast from dawn to until sunset every day in the month of Ramadan. During the fasting time, Muslims are not allowed to eat anything or smoke. They can eat only after sunset and before the dawn. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of the Muslim religion.

Ramadan History

The Holy month of Ramadan was established when the Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad in 610 CE on the occasion usually known as Laylat al-Qadr or "the Night of Power".

The word Ramadan is an Arabic word, which means 'scorching'.

Ramadan for Muslims was introduced in three steps. In the first step, fasting was kept as optional and could be replaced by feeding others in need. In the second stage, fasting was made compulsorily for those able to do it. But, if the fast could be broken only at sunset or next dawn.
The third stage of fasting is what we see today

Ramadan Significance and Importance

Apart from the fact that the fasting during Ramadan is a religious obligation, there are some other reasons why it is considered a good exercise. We found some good points on Wikipedia and some other websites that we would like to share here

- According to Islam, the rewards of fasting are many, but in this month they are believed to be multiplied.
- The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities
- The purpose is to cleanse the soul by freeing it from harmful impurities
- Ramadan also teaches Muslims how to better practice self-discipline, self-control,sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate; thus encouraging actions of generosity and compulsory charity
