Ramadan

Question No. /

Islam is one of the most widespread religions in the world. Its followers, Muslims, number between 850 million and 1 billion. Islam is practiced in many countries throughout the world. Allah is the Arabic word Muslims use for “God.” In Arabic, “Islam” means submission to Allah. The Muslims believe that in the seventh century Allah chose Muhammad to receive his message. Muhammad recorded the revelations he received.

The most important rituals practiced by the Muslims are often referred to as the Five Pillars of Islam. They are as follows:

Shahadah – a short statement declaring the greatness and oneness of Allah.

Salat – prayer that is offered five times a day

Sawm – the fast that takes place during Ramadan

Zakat – a religious tax used for the poor, the sick, and the others less privileged in the Islamic community

Hajj – the pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca

The third pillar references an important Muslim holiday. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The fast of Ramadan lasts the entire month. All those who have reached the age of puberty (usually 12 years of age) are expected to observe the fast. During this time, strict restraints are placed on Muslims. They are not to eat or drink during the daylight hours. The fast is broken at sunset. It begins again the next morning when one can see the white light coming through the darkness.

Ramadan is a time for Muslims to concentrate on the practice of their faith. It is a time for greater focus on Islam and less focus on every day concerns. Time is spent praying, worshipping, contemplating, and receiving religious instruction. Part of the worship includes reciting passages from the Koran. There is a festive atmosphere after sunset. In many cities Muslims visit with family and friends after they have broken the fast. Shopping areas and restaurants are busy, alive with food and fellowship.

On the 27th day of Ramadan fireworks are often used to celebrate the Night of Power. The Night of Power is the night that Muhammad first received his revelation of the Koran in the year 610. Ramadan is a time to celebrate and give thanks for the gift of the Koran., to practice self-discipline, and recommit one’s self to the Islamic faith.
