As all you know I am member of EC since a long time. I love EC because it gives us an opportunity to share our experiences, customs, culture and belief to the world so by talking advantage of this opportunity I want to share some information about “Ramadan” the Holy month of Islam.      

Fasting the month of Ramadan is one of the main pillars of Islam. It is obligatory upon every sane, healthy Muslim whose reached puberty and is not traveling during the time of fasting. As for women, they must not fast if they are menstruating or having post-childbirth bleeding.

The rule of fasting:

There are two essentials elements for your fast to be valid and accepted. They are:


1.         Intention

You must have the intention to fast before fajr (dawn) every night during the month of Ramadan. The intention does not need to be spoken, because in reality it is an act of the heart, which does not involve the tongue. It will be fulfilled by one's intention from the heart to fast out of obedience to Allaah (God) seeking His pleasure.


2.         Abstaining from acts that invalidate the Fast

 The action that Invalidate your fasting

 All scholars have agreed that the following acts will invalidate the fast. They are:

Intentional Eating or Drinking

Intentional Vomiting

Intentional Sexual Intercourse

Menstrual or Childbirth Bleeding

 If you maintain these two essential elements during fasting, then your fast will be valid and accepted.

The month of Ramadan is a month in which the Mercy and Blessings of God descend upon us continuously. The whole Quran (The Last Book of God) was sent down to the first sky from Lawhe Mahfooz. There is the night of Qadr, which is better than 1000 months. Whoever spends the night of Lailatul Qadr in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, will be forgiven his previous sins. The first ten days are of mercy, second ten days are of forgiveness and the last ten days are of being freed from Hell. The month of Ramadan is one of the greatest blessings of God.

I appreciate your comments, like and corrections! May God bless you all.
