Ramadan

   Ramadan kareem everyone . Today is the 11th of Ramadan in Jordan .

(Ramadan )

       Years ago some people didn't know what 's Ramadan , what do we do in Ramadan , what do we eat during Ramadan ,and what is our daily routine in Ramadan . so because we are now in Ramadan it is a special month to Muslims .we greet each other we say to each other ( Ramadan kareem ,in Arabic we say it  kl eam wa'ant bikhayr) in English it is each year and you're fine that is the literal  meaning . 

 

Ramadan is a very special time for Muslims all over the world. Observing Ramadan is one of the five 'pillars' of Islam. During Ramadan,Muslims  are expected to fast between dawn and sunset.  Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar , which phases of the moon .Fasting ends with the arrival of the next lunar month, which starts with the first glimpse of the new crescent moon.

Most popular questions about Ramadan here some of these questions that people ask us about it .

Are all Muslims expected to fast?

Not all Muslims are expected to fast. Children under the age of 12, people who are travelling, elderly people, pregnant women and others where it may affect their health are exempt. Those who can't fast for any reason can offer to feed poor people for each day they miss during Ramadan.

What happens at sunset?

People can eat and drink again once the sun has set. The traditional way to break the fast is by eating dates and drinking a glass of water. Then, the evening meal, Iftar, is a social event that can go on for hours. It is common for people to eat together in large groups of family and friends, but now because of the COVID19  so we can't gather togather . Special foods are prepared and shared, and desserts are particularly popular. Muslims often include charity in Iftar as well, sharing Iftar with members of the community who cannot buy or make their own food. Across the Muslim world, mosques and aid organisations set up tents and tables for the public in poorer communities to eat free Iftar meals every night of Ramadan.

and the most important question is why do we fast ? to be closer to God ,self control,  being more patient ,tolerant ,and more mindful of the people around us .It is a moment to reflect and work on being better people. 

how is the end of the end of Ramadan ?On Eid ul-Fitr, Muslims wake up early and dress in their finest clothes to attend the Eid prayers. After prayers, they wish each other a happy Eid ('Eid Mubarak' in Arabic) before spending the rest of the day with their extended families, enjoying good food and sharing gifts with children and loved ones.

Hi Tatyana,

Ramadan Kareem to you!

It is such a shame that you are having to celebrate this important event in these difficult times. It must be frustrating not being able to have large gatherings with all your friends and family. sad

Many of my friends (who are Muslim) force themselves to fast and find it so difficult. I have a lot of respect for them - they also say it really helps them to become better, kinder people. I suppose it makes us more sympathetic to those who are poorer / aren't as lucky as we are. 

I once tried to fast and found it impossible. I am determined to try again however at some point in the future.

What do people do who play sports for a living out of curiosity? (such as professional tennis and football players) Are they expected to fast too?

 

 

Good to hear from you Tatyana and hope you, your family and friends all stay safe during these tough times.

Hi again , sorry for being late to response but you know online lectures ,exams .

<thank you thats so kind of you . < yes it is so frustrating but there is nothing to do actually , that's right that  I like staying home after a long day at university , communicate with my family , workout ,read my book , and barly see my phone haha. but at least I like it .but this quartrine it  is very tiring .

< yes Ramadan is one of the 5 pillers of Islam and that's right it help us to become better, kinderpeople outside and inside and feel what others are suffering from  . that so cool that you have friends who are Muslim . Is there a lot of Muslims in England / Manchester  around you ?  

, that's a good try by practicing everything is getting much easier , once I asked my parents since when I start fastin  they told my that I have been fasting since I was  7 years old but we fast (children ) but not the whole day (long time of the day )  parents make their children fast to the afternoon  at the beginning then the next year the add onther hour to the original time and they keep going  and when they reach 12 years old they can fast just like their parent (adults )  so it's  a peace of cake  smiley 

about the last thing actually I don't have an idea about that 

thank you again and take care

Hi Tatyana,

Yes it is so frustrating, isn't it sadbut I suppose it is the right thing to do!

Yes, there are many Muslims in England and Manchester and many mosques here too! Muslims do a lot to help out in the community. Here is one article that is a good example of how nice and kind they are (generally speaking) : https://ilovemanchester.com/manchester-muslim-community-human-appeal-deliver-food/

Well I suppose you started fasting when you were very young, so that is probably why you don't find it too difficult now! I will not give up though and am determined to have another go at fasting! (I just need to improve my willpower)

Nice to hear from you and glad to hear you are well :)

Wow! Good job, Tatyana! It's nice to know about the Ramadan culture. I have made some modifications to your text, please take a look.

Ramadan Kareem, everyone! Today is the 11th of Ramadan in Jordan .

(Ramadan )

       Years ago, some people didn't know what 's Ramadan is, what do we do in Ramadan, what do we eat during Ramadan, and what is our daily routine is in Ramadan. So, because we are now in Ramadan, I would like to tell you that it is a special month to Muslims. We greet each other we say to each other ( Ramadan Kareem, in Arabic we say:  “kl eam wa'ant bikhayr”) in English it is “each year and you're fine” that is the literal meaning literally
