If you think Ramadan is only about a month of fasting for the Muslim community, then, you may be unaware of its significant aspects. In 610 AD on this propitious Islamic month, the Quran had been revealed to Prophet Muhammad.
Contrary to what people know, this holy period is deeply rooted in history, culture, and faith. Across the globe, Muslims ensure that they mark the time of Ramadan with sparkling celebrations that have been passed down by their older generations and are distinct to every region.
Apart from charity, prayer, and fasting, Muslims share various traditions. Like in Egypt, there’s lantern lighting ceremony, and in Indonesia, devotees observe the bathing rituals. In India, people serve iftar meals and its merriment brings all, irrespective of their religion, together.
As India imprints beams with a strong sense of culture that the nation is born with, this holy month of Ramadan holds a special place in our heart. We pray to the Allah for light and faith for every soul.
