Pak month of Ramadan comes to an end!
Pak month of Ramadan is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over the world. Ramadan sees Muslims take part in a period of fasting, in which they will not eat or drink before dawn or after sunset for a month. The fasting is designed to allow Muslims to concentrate on their faith and devotion to Allah. This is a kind of gratitude towards Allah.
The only times during this period Muslims are allowed to eat is before daybreak and after sunset. A meal named the Suhoor is eaten before daybreak, and a meal called the Iftar has partaken immediately after sunset.
When will Ramadan end this year?
Ramadan officially began on May 16 this year and lasts for a month. This festival actually lasts for a month.
Ramadan and Eid fall on different dates each year, as Islam uses the lunar calendar, which doesn’t line up perfectly with the Western calendar based on the solar cycle. Eid, known in full as Eid ul Fitr, begins this year on June 15 and is when the first sight of the new moon is seen in the sky.
The celebration will see Muslims have their first daytime meal in over a month, and hold celebrations at their homes and in Mosques. Views of their Celebration at mosques give you an eternal peace. Eid is also a period of finery when Muslims dress in their best clothes and give gifts to their friends and family. Charity is also expected of celebrating Muslims, who will be encouraged to donate a set amount of money to help the less fortunate afford their own clothes and food.
What do we understand Eid -ul -Adha?
Ramadan is celebrated as one of the important five pillars of Islam, alongside, faith, prayer, charity and the pilgrimage to the Muslim holy city of Mecca. The second most important festival in the Islamic calendar is Eid ul Adha, which is regarded as the Greater Eid.
The festival falls from the 21st of August to the 25th and celebrates the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.
During this time Muslims will feast on an animal divided into three parts. One part is given to the poor, another to friends, and another shared with their family.
Happy Eid Everyone!
