What Is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar which is observed by the entire Muslim community from around the world.

The Muslims engage in good deeds and ask for forgiveness and refrain from eating and drinking from dawn until sunset.

Moreover, this annual practice is considered one of the five pillars of Islam. It is said that Ramadan is the commemoration of Prophet Muhammad’s first revelation.

Importance Of Ramadan:

The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,

“When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained” (Bukhari)

In another Hadith, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,

“Whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, and then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Bukhari).
