Significance of Ramadan

The holy month begins during the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar year. The origins of Ramadan date back to the 7th century when Prophet Muhammad received the first verses of the Holy Quran. The revelation of the Quran began on the 27th night — Laylatul Qadr — of this month, believed to be the most sacred of all nights.

In this month-long period, Muslims not only refrain from eating and drinking but get into charity and all other works that bring one closer to Almighty Allah. The objective or the essence of this important practice in Ramadan is to inculcate the ability to control all the negative things in life which may deviate the believers from the right path. The period of Ramadan is considered important for spiritual growth, self-reflection and following the teachings of Prophet Muhammad.

It is believed by the followers of Islam that fasting strengthens their faith and connects them with divine power.
