How to Wish Someone a Happy Ramadan

You can wish someone a happy Ramadan by saying “Ramadan Kareem,” which translates into “have a generous Ramadan.” The appropriate response to Ramadan Kareem is “Allahu Akram” which translates as “God is much more generous”. You can also say “Ramadan Mubarak,” which translates to “happy Ramadan.”

When someone greets you with “Ramadan Mubarak”, the expected responses are “Khair Mubarak” - which wishes goodness back on the person who originally greeted you.

It can often be used to wish someone a happy Ramadan. 'Ramadan Kareem' translates as 'generous Ramadan' and isn't used as much as some debate surrounds its meaning.

The most common greeting during Ramadan is Ramadan Mubarak (Rah-ma-dawn Moo-bar-ack). It essentially means "blessed Ramadan" or "happy Ramadan."

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, and is celebrated during the first three days of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar (though the Muslim use of a lunar calendar means that it may fall in any season of the year).
