What is Ramadan?
  • Ramadan is the 9th Month of the Muslim Calendar.
  • Ramadan is also known as a month of observation.
  • The Month of Ramadan is also when it is believed
    the Holy Quran "was sent down from heaven, a
    guidance unto men, a declaration of direction,
    and a means of Salvation"

Continued
  • During the month Ramadan is when Muslims fast.
    The fast lasts for one month. It is during this
    time that Muslims concentrate on their faith and
    less time on the insignificant things in life.
  • Ramadan is the 4th pillar of Islamic obligation.

Laylat-al-Qadr
  • Also known as the Night of Power. Laylat-al-Qadr
    is the 27th day of Ramadan and is celebrated as
    the day the prophet first received revelation of
    the Quran. Also according to the Quran, this is
    when God determines the course of the world for
    the following year.

When in Ramadan?
  • Ramadan is in the ninth month of the Muslim
    calendar. This is a lunar calendar approximately
    11 to 12 days shorter than the standard fiscal
    year. Because of this, Muslim holidays tend to
    shift every year.

7
How is Ramadan performed?
  • During Ramadan Muslims fast as a way to develop
    sympathy for the less fortunate and provides a
    break from the habit of overindulgence.
  • Fasting occurs from sunrise to sunset. After
    sunset to break the fast it is common to have a
    meal (iftar) and before sunrise many also have a
    pre-fast meal (suhoor).
  • During fasting Muslims should refrain from
    eating, drinking, smoking and sex.
  • Pregnant women, sick people, children, travelers
    and elderly are not required to fast during
    Ramadan.
  • During Ramadan, devout Muslims read as much of
    the Quran as they can.

8
How do Muslims End the Month of Ramadan?
  • On the first day of the next month which is known
    as Shawwal there is a holiday known as Id-al-Fitr
    or the Feast of Fast Breaking.
  • During this time family and friends get together
    to exchange gifts and congratulate each other for
    completing the fast.

9
What is the Purpose?
  • Self-Discipline-Over Indulgence
  • Develop Sympathy for Less Fortunate
  • Give to others-Generosity and Charitable
  • Devotion to Allah-Redirect the Heart Away from
    Worldly Activities
