RAMADAN 2024 APPEALS

Ramadan 2024

Throughout Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating or drinking from dawn until sunset, a practice known as fasting. Typically, children are not required to fast until they reach puberty, typically around the age of 14.

Ramadan commemorates the month during which the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The specific night of this revelation is known as Lailat ul-Qadr, translated as “The Night of Power.”

Ramadan 2024 is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Every year, its dates change because the Islamic calendar follows the Moon’s phases. Ramadan 2024 donate to where most needed

It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon. Because the Muslim calendar year is shorter than the Gregorian calendar year, Ramadan begins 10–12 days earlier each year, allowing it to fall in every season throughout a 33-year cycle. Ramadan 2024 donate to where most needed

This year, Ramadan is expected to begin on Monday 11th March 2024, depending on the sighting of the moon.

Many Muslims fast from dawn until sunset. Fasting is a way for them to focus on their religion. It helps them learn self-control and makes them think about people who don’t have enough food. But, some people, like children, pregnant women, old folks, and those who are sick or traveling, don’t have to fast.

In Ramadan, it’s normal to eat two meals. One is called suhoor (the closing of the fast), just before dawn, and the other is called iftar (the opening of the fast), right after sunset.

During Ramadan, most Muslims aim to quit bad habits. It’s a time for prayer and doing good things. They spend time with family and friends and help those who need it. Many Muslims try to read the entire Qur’an at least once during Ramadan. They also go to special services at mosques where the Qur’an is read aloud during their prayers, this is called ‘Taraweeh’

The end of Ramadan is celebrated with a grand festival known as ‘Eid ul-Fitr’ or the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast.

Muslims don’t just rejoice because fasting has ended; they also express gratitude to Allah for the strength they received during the preceding month. Ramadan 2024 donate to where most needed

Special services are held in mosques, and a special meal is enjoyed during daylight hours, marking the first daytime meal in a month. Ramadan 2024 donate to where most needed

On Eid ul-Fitr, Muslims dress in their finest attire, exchange gifts with children, and cherish moments with loved ones. It’s also a time for charitable giving, with many Muslims contributing to charity on Eid.

The Five Pillars Of Islam

Declaration Of Faith

The first pillar of Islam is the Shahada, the assertion of faith. There are two shahadas: “There is no god but God” and “Muhammad is the messenger of God”. This set statement is normally recited in Arabic: lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāhu muḥammadun rasūlu-llāh (لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله) “There is no god but God (and) Muhammad is the messenger of God.” It is essential to utter it to become a Muslim and to convert to Islam.
