The Ramadan Month

The Ramadan Month

  • Ramadan is a month full of social festivities such as communal dinners, group prayers, and other gatherings.
  • The Islamic holy month is always held on the 9th month of the Islamic Lunar calendar.
  • Since the calendar depends on the moon cycle, Ramadan falls about 11 days earlier each year. 
  • During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn to dusk — yes, even water.
  • When the sun sets, there is a communal meal called 'Iftar' where you break your fast, usually with your family or friends.

Beyond Fasting

  • The month of Ramadan is about more than just fasting.
  • You are also encouraged to do good deeds such as charity and abstain from sinful acts such as gossip.
  • It's also a month of self-reflection and a way for Muslims to develop positive habits that can be brought forward once Ramadan is over.

The Duration Of The Holy Month

The Duration Of The Holy Month

  • Ramadan lasts for 29 or 30 days depending on the moon cycle.
  • After a month of fasting, Muslims celebrate with a festival called Eid and wish each other 'Eid Mubarak' (Have a blessed Eid).
  • Eid is a social event that is celebrated by having your family, friends and neighbours over for a large feast.
  • Muslims decorate their homes and wear new clothes, and children and the elderly receive gifts or money packets.
  • While practices vary across the world, Eid is also a time when Muslims seek forgiveness from each other.

The Rules Of Ramadan

The Rules Of Ramadan

  • Don't eat or drink from dawn to dusk.
  • Before the sun rises, Muslims usually wake up to eat a big meal so that they won't be hungry during the day.
  • Those who don't want to wake up early have a big dinner before bed.

You're exempt from fasting if you're:

  • Pregnant
  • Sick
  • Menstruating
  • Travelling long distances

Children are not required to fast but they're welcome to learn by participating, such as fasting up until lunchtime.

If you miss a fast, you can make up for it by fasting at a later date. And if you can't fast because of health reasons, you can donate food or money to the poor instead.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
