Brace Yourself, Ramadan Is Coming!
Get ready for the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, where Muslims focus on self-control, gratitude, and empathy towards the less fortunate, all while continuing with their daily activities and dedicating additional time to spiritual practices like reciting the Qur'an.
Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which is based on the lunar system. Yearly, Ramadan advances by about ten days compared to the Gregorian calendar. Ramadan this year is set to start on 22 March 2023.
Ramadan is a month when Muslims all around the world fast from dawn to sundown. Besides abstaining from food and drink, Ramadan trains Muslims to gain self-control and gratitude by developing empathy towards the less fortunate.
Fasting during Ramadan is not just about refraining from physical sustenance but also from negative thoughts and actions. It is a way for Muslims to purify their mind and soul, seeking closer to Allah SWT.
During Ramadan, Muslims will continue with their normal day-to-day activities and also spend additional time and effort on other spiritual activities, such as spending much time in the recitation of the Qur'an.
