It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and also called as Ramazan. Ramadan is observed by Muslims in all over the world as a month of fasting. As per Islamic belief, Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. Ramadan is an Arabic word that means dryness or scorching heat. Fasting is compulsory for all Muslims except those who are suffering from an several diseases, pregnant, diabetic, illness, breastfeeding, chronically ill or menstruating and also whose job is based on travelling daily.
I am also excited and observe fasting in the month of Ramadan. First of all take Sehri before sunrise with light food such as fruits, butter bread or tea. After sunset, take Iftaar with several delicious foods such as several sweets, sharbat, fruits, several types of pakras and many more items. In this month, we organizes Iftaar party for relatives, and also invites non Muslim friends which makes and message for unity and increases strong bonding between different religions in our country. During fasting from sunrise to sunset, we are instructed to avoid drinking liquids including water, consuming food, and smoking. We are also instructed to avoid bad behavior with others, fighting, and false speech (cursing, lying, insulting and backbiting). The main aim of the Ramadan is to purify the body and the soul which increases their good deeds and God-consciousness also know the difficulty for thirsty and hungry in all over day. This purification of the body and soul harmonizes the inner and outer spheres of a person. It is also a moth of Ibadat (Prayer) so we also observe prayer or Namaz during fasting.
