Ramadan Mubarak to all my dear friends! ❤ 🙂
Ramadan (Arabic: رمضان) or Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which the Quran was revealed.
Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. According to Islam, the Quran was sent down to the lowest heaven during this month, thus being prepared for gradual revelation by Jibreel (Gabriel) to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Therefore, Muhammad told his followers that the gates of Heaven would be open for the entire month and the gates of Hell (Jahannam) would be closed. The first day of the next month, Shawwal, is spent in celebration and is observed as the “Festival of Breaking Fast” or Eid al-Fitr .
I’m so excited because Ramadan is my most favourite month of the year. It’s filled with blessings and peace! During Ramadan, we (Muslims) fast, give charity, donate, read Quran as much as we can, pray and try to do as many good deeds as we can and also prevent ourselves from engaging in anything which is harmful to our body and soul. ❤
And after Ramadan, we celebrate “Eid-ul-Fitr” to mark the end of the entire month of Ramadan. During Eid, families and friends get together and celebrate.
I’m really excited to pray and eat all the yummy dishes my mother makes during Ramadan xD I don’t know if I’m going to be this active because College has also started. But, I’m going to read this Urdu book called Jannat Kay Pattay (Jannah’s Leaves/ Leaves of Paradise) during Ramadan because it’s about a journey of a girl towards Islam and all of my friends love it and have been recommending it since last year but I thought that Ramadan would be a perfect time to read this book.
Also my favourite part; Mehandi (Henna) *inserts heart eyes emoji* I have saved so many designs *squeals*
So again Happy Ramadan to all! I hope you all have the best Ramadan. ❤
If you’re not a Muslim then I’d encourage you to read this article It’s really good and gives you more information about Ramadan.
