The holly month, the fasting
period, the Ramadan is for Muslims the month of the
forgiveness, when they try to purify themselves, to obtain
control over the passions and vices and to stay away from
lies and stealing.
The fasting, and, the holly
Ramadan last for 29 days, period in which the probationer
Muslims dedicate to the sublime contemplation of the divine
peace and harmony, the four weeks being spend in totally
abstinence and prayers for the mind and body`s cleaning.
The Muslim believers
think that, according to the prophet Mahomed, the Ramadan
month is the month when the Heaven` s gates open and ones of
the hell are closed.
Allah ordered the Muslims to fast for
a month, to pray, and then to have joy for 3 days. In the
Laylat-al-Qadr night, the 27th in the Ramadan period, the
Koran was revealed to the prophet Mahomed by Allah. At the
end of the Ramadan the Muslims will celebrate the Ramadan
Bayram, with kind of Turkish cakes, suberek, sarailii,
geantak, fruits, and other traditional specialties.
During the Ramadan, at least the
Friday, a holly day for Muslims, the believers (only men)
come to mosque to pray, each of the prays said in this holy
month having, in the eyes of Allah, a much bigger value than
the ones said in the rest of the year. The Ramadan month,
the precious one, is a month for the Islamic religion. In
this month the Muslim are fasting, from the sunrise to the
sunset they don` t eat and don` t drink anything, being
indeed a very serious challenge. Why people fast? Because
Allah ordered to his slaves to purify their body.
There is also a medical explanation according to
which is healthy to have a black fast from time to
time so all the impurities to leave our body.
the fast is not only with the body, in Ramadan being
also forbidden to steal or swear or lie, you have to
try to be as good as possible with yourself and with
the others. If you can give for charity, at least
have a good word for them.
Also, during the Ramadan,
it used to give a lot for charity. Allah wrote in
Koran that a specific percentage from everyone` s
wealthy it have to be given for charity.
Ramadan starts? Usually, around September, the great
teachers calculate the month` s cycles.
The Ramadan month is one of the fourth
holly months in Islam but the Ramadan is special because in
the Ramadan month the Koran was revealed, the holly book of
the Muslims. In Ramadan there are no bad facts, everything
that is bad comes only from us and the Ramadan is a chance
to become better persons.
In Ramadan you read from Koran as
much as possible, and pray as much as possible so your
reward for every fact is much bigger in Ramadan. If you want
to wish happy Ramadan to a Muslim then the Arab translation
is Ramadan careem/kereem.
