The holy month of Ramadan is here, and we are ready to celebrate this month with our loved ones. In this month, we observe our fellow Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset. It is a time to be disciplined spiritually so as to remind themselves of the fragility of humans and their dependence on God for sustenance, and also to know what it feels like to be hungry and thirsty so they can empathise with the poor and needy. In this month, they have to reduce the distractions in your life, in order to strengthen their relationship with God.
According to Muslims, it was during this month that God revealed the first verses of 'The Quran' to the Prophet on a night known as 'Laylat al-Qadr' or 'The Night Of Power'.
Prophet Mohammed reportedly said, "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of Heaven are opened, and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are chained."
At the end of Ramadan, the Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr or 'The Festival of Breaking of The Fasts.'
But do you know what makes Ramadan better? A little support from your friends.
Muslims are supposed to try and stop negative thoughts, actions and emotions like jealousy, anger, swearing, complaining, gossiping during this holy month. Some people might also give up or limit certain activities like listening to music and watching TV, often so that they can replace them with the recitations of 'The Quran'.
It feels delightful when someone acknowledges the fact that fasting is a difficult process that becomes easier with the help of a few friends.
This sentence is quite universal, all over the world.
It's considered sweet and respectful if you don't eat in front of a person who is fasting.
Vermicelli is a desert which is similar to rice pudding. It's a yum delicacy, which is pretty common in the holy month of Ramadan.
During the other eleven months, our reply to the time of Maghrib is very blah as we aren't that aware. But during Ramadan, we count down to the time that we break our fast.
