The month of Ramadan ends with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, a festive occasion where Muslims gather at the mosque to offer special prayers, exchange gifts, and share meals with family, friends, and poor people.
It is all about fasting, charity, prayers, good meals, good outfits, and grand celebrations. The ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the holiest month for fasting is known as Ramadan. The crescent moon's appearance signals the start and end of each event. Ramadan can fall in any season over the course of a 33-year cycle because, unlike the Gregorian calendar, the Muslim calendar year begins 10-12 days earlier each year.
Muslims all over the world wait in joyful anticipation for the chance to observe fasting. It falls during the fourth month of the Islamic faith's five pillars, as the blessed month of Ramadan approaches each year. Every year, the timely arrival of Ramadan arouses curiosity and awareness that prompts the question, "What exactly is fasting?"
Fasting is not only a physical exercise in Islam; it is also a spiritual one, with the ultimate goal of achieving God's pleasure through living one's life in accordance with His laws. Muslims will only succeed in making themselves hungry and thirsty if they strictly adhere to the fast's external rules. The true essence of Islam is,
All Muslim adults are required to fast because Islam is a religion that seeks to elevate each Muslim spiritually and grant them access to God's grace. Islam doesn't want the practice to be a burden for people who can't fast. Therefore, those who are unable to fast during Ramadan due to illness or travel are excused from doing so and must make up any missed fasts later. Women who are nursing, pregnant, or menstruating are also exempt from fasting. Muslims who later find themselves unable to make up missed fasts are given an additional break, but they are still required to pay “FIDYA” (a fine for skipping a fast, which is usually used to feed the needy and hungry).
The annual Ramadan observance, which marks the anniversary of Muhammad's first revelation, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and lasts from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next for a period of twenty-nine to thirty days.
One of the most sacred times for Muslims is Ramadan, which falls during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims observe a strict daily fast from sunrise to sunset during this month. During these hours of daylight, they are not allowed to consume any food or beverages, not even water.
This includes paying zakat, doing good, and considering the Quran. Fasting during Ramadan is one of Islam's five pillars or duties. Faith, prayer, charity, and making the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca are the other four pillars. HIGS says, May the choicest blessings of Allah fill your life with joy and prosperity.
