Ramadan…Ramadan is the holy month of Muslims, in which Muslims fast. It is the most sacred month. Muslims try to avoid every bad habit in this sacred month and they do there best to avoid the bad things, and all that things which are not liked by THE ALLMIGHTY ALLH.
From the beginning of the Islam, every year Ramadan comes with its blessings, and Muslims perform the act of fasting. They bow before THE ALLMIGHTY ALLAH five times a day (offer prayers), recites the Holy Book of ALLMIGHTY ALLAH (QURAN), try to do good things, greet others in a decent way. Help the needy and poor people. The first and the foremost thing which muslims do in this sacred month is, they pay ‘ZAKAT’.
ZAKAT is not obligatory on each and every muslim. It is obligatory just on rich people. If a person has a handsome sum of money, it is obligatory on him to pay ZAKAT.ZAKAT pures ones income. A muslim is one who earns halal and eats halal. Hence it is obligatory on every rich muslim to give Zakat to needy and people (to make there income halal).
The month of Ramadan lasts for 30 days (sometimes for 29 days).At the time of dawn, muslims kept there fast, and at the of sunset they break it, after hearing the Mulana(who recite azan).They are not allowed to eat or drink anything during there there fast. There also comes a sacred night in this month, known as ‘Laila-tul-Qader’.It is the night of blessings.
“whoever Stood For The Prayers
in The Night Of Qadr Out Of Sincere
faith And Hoping For A Reward From Allah,
then All His Previous Sins Will Be Forgiven”
