Ramadan is the Islamic/Lunar calendar's Ninth Month. Fasting, abstinence, and meditation are all part of Ramadan. Fasting during Ramadan is more than just abstaining from eating. Fasting during Ramadan is a disciplined ritual of avoiding temptations and bad habits.
From sunrise to sunset, qualified Muslims must abstain from eating and drinking (including water), smoking, intoxication, and any impure thoughts.
Ramadan is a very auspicious month since it is during this month that the first verses of the Holy Quran were bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad as a guide for all mankind.
This occurred during the last ten nights of the month, which is why Laylat-ul-Qadr is so significant. Ramadan will occur in a variety of seasons from year to year, affecting the total amount of time spent fasting.
The Islamic year rotates by about 11 days per year since it is dependent on the lunar calendar. When fasting, there are two known meals: "Suhoor," which is the morning meal and must be consumed before sunrise, and "Iftar," which is the evening meal and must be consumed at or after sunset. Dates are traditionally used to open and close the daily fast. Certain people can be excused from fasting depending on their circumstances, such as those who are sick, pregnant, under the age of 18, and so on. There are also certain restrictions for those who travel during the fasting day.
One of the month's main themes is to achieve taqwa, or closeness to Allah, and to instill fear of Allah. For those who seek repentance, practice, and offer to charity during Ramadan, there are numerous incentives.
During the month of Ramadan, a lot of things happened. Among them are:
1. The Qur'an was revealed.
2. The Battle of Badr was fought and won by Muslims.
3. The city of Makkah was conquered (Fath-Makkah)
During Ramadan, the gates of Mercy are opened. Allah's Messenger, according to Abu Huraira R.A, said: The gates of mercy are unlocked, the gates of Hell are closed, and the demons are chained when the month of Ramadan arrives.
