Islam Ramadan ~ May 27 ~ June 24
9th month on Islamic calendar, devoted to the commemoration of Muhammad's reception
of the divine revelation recorded in the Qur'an. The event begins when authorities in Saudi Arabia
sight the new moon of the 9th month. It is the holiest period of the Islamic Year lasting 29-30 days. There is strict fasting from sunrise to sunset as well as observed prayer times. Ramadan comes from the word ramadaa, which means 'sunbaked' in Arabic. This is perhaps a reference to the pangs of hunger Muslims feel when fasting.According to Islamic tradition, menstruating women, women who are experiencing bleeding after giving birth, people who are sick (either with short term or long term illnesses), and travelers are exempt from fasting. Pregnant women also have the option of skipping fasts.In Islamic countries, when Ramadan ends and the crescent moon is first seen, people bang drums and give mighty shouts.
I am grace in motion!
