This article will provide information about Ramadan 2018.
Ramadan is far more than just not eating food......... it is a time of contemplation, a time to cherish faith, family, and friends and a time of charity towards those who are less fortunate.
During the month of Ramadan, which is the holiest month of the Islamic calendar many Muslims in Britain join Muslims all over the world in observing a month of fasting during daylight hours. Fasting does not mean retreating from daily routine, rather continuing as normal in work and usual activities. In fact, this is where the challenge of patience and endurance comes in.
Muslims believe fasting is not merely a physical ritual, but is primarily a time for reflection, prayer and spiritual recharging. During the fast, Muslims believe that their desires are curbed, and that one’s patience, closeness to God and generosity towards others is increased. Ramadan is an important focus for helping those less fortunate in the UK and other countries through charitable donations and other good deeds.
This year Ramadan is estimated to start on the 15th of May and run until the 14th of June.
