Activities in Ramadan
I am also happy and 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. During fasting from sunrise to sunset, we are instructed to avoid drinking liquids including water, consuming food, sexual activities and smoking. We are also instructed to avoid bad behavior with others, fighting, and false speech (cursing, lying, insulting and backbiting. Thus fasting teaches practicing self- discipline and control over eating, drinking and bad behavior.
In this month Zakat (Charity) is also given to poor people who are unable to purchase new clothes in Eid.After sunset, we take Iftaar with several delicious foods such as several sweets, sharbat, fruits, several types of pakoras 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.
