The Brief History of Ramadan You Need to Know

History of Ramadan

Newstoday: Ramadan began on Thursday 23rd March in many parts of the world. The ninth month in the Islamic calendar is called Ramadan which is a holy month for Muslims all over the world.. Ramadan dates to the seventh century when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received the Quran during Ramadan. Muslims around the world fast from sunrise til sunset throughout the month of Ramadan, refraining from eating and drinking anything. The fast is broken about sundown with an evening meal known as Iftar. Ramadan is also a season for more prayer and introspection. Muslims spend longer time at the mosque and say more prayers, particularly at night. They also attempt to conduct more good actions, such as charitable work, throughout this month. Eid al-Fitr, a three-day holiday that starts with special prayers and is characterized by family reunions, gift-giving, and eating, marks the conclusion of Ramadan. Ramadan is, in brief, a month of spiritual introspection, heightened devotion to God, and ego via fasting and refraining from earthly pleasures.
