Alhamdulillah! The blessed month of Ramadan is almost here! For Muslims across the globe, the holy month of Ramadan is a sacred time for worshipping Allah (SWT).
It is an opportunity for new beginnings; for spiritual renewal and reflection, increased devotion, and celebration of the mercy and love of Allah (SWT).
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar, in which healthy adult Muslims are required to fast each day from dawn until dusk. This includes abstaining from drinking, eating, immoral acts and anger. Other acts of worship such as prayer, reading the Quran and charity are also encouraged during the holy month.
As the Islamic calendar is based around the lunar cycle, the Holy month of Ramadan rotates by approximately ten days each year.This year, Ramadan is expected to begin on Monday 12 April and end on Wednesday 12 May 2021, depending on the sighting of the moon.
