RAMADAN - The month of fasting

Postby kimo » Sun Oct 10, 2004 5:39 pm

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Islam uses a lunar calendar—that is, each month begins with the sighting of the new moon. Because the lunar calendar is about 11 days shorter than the solar calendar used elsewhere, Islamic holidays "move" each year. In 2004 Ramadan will begin on Oct. 15.
For more than a billion Muslims around the world—including some 8 million in North America—Ramadan is a "month of blessing" marked by prayer, fasting, and charity. This year Ramadan precedes Christmas and Hanukkah. But while in many places these holidays have become widely commercialized, Ramadan retains its focus on self-sacrifice and devotion to Allah (God).
:D :D :D

Hi there.....
First of all I would like to thank u for ur massage, and I read some of ur massages and I enjoyed them .
About our Pray we can do it anywhere in the world no need to go Mecca ,but if any Muslim do his Pray in Mecca he will get more charity special in Ramadan our God(ALLAH) gives us more charity in Ramadan ,So we see a lot of people go to Mecca seeking for more charity .
I will try to write about any thing in my mind so I hope to send me ur opinion to encourage me to do my best.

Anyway I hope to be in touch
Good luck
kimo
