Dress codes are transformed in the Arab world during the fasting month of Ramadan where women choose to ramadan dresses and traditional and longer clothing with modern touches, which become a trend throughout the month.

However, the ideal is to choose fresh clothes, and especially a super comfortable and breathable Hijab. 

On this occasion we recommend trying our hijab pullover It is super comfortable, does not overwhelm anything and is very flexible, since thanks to its texture composed of 5% Spandex that is responsible for elasticity and 95% Cotton that guarantees incredible comfort and freshness. Furthermore, it is a fabric that does not slip at all, nor is it transparent. 

I mean, it is a must have for Ramadan and for any daily use.

Laylat ul Qadr (the night of the decree):

What is forbidden in Ramadan? 

During the month of Ramadan, fasting is obligatory for every person who can do it, that is, who is in good health and who can do it.

However, if the person is traveling or is sick or if it is the menstruation period for the woman, in this case, do not fast.

In addition to not taking food or drink (or chewing gum), and avoiding sexual relations during the hours of the sun, it is also important to maintain pure morals, that is, not to swear, not speak ill of people or steal (although pure morals are to keep it every day of the year since Islam forbids these things)

It is very important in Ramadan that Muslims help each other and help their neighbors, especially those most in need. 

In places where the sun does not set, when does the fast end?

Muslims in Alaska, northern Canada or Finland for example have a problem when it comes to performing Ramadan since the sun barely sets for a few hours.

In this case, the Islamic center of northern Norway, understanding that in 2018 there would be 23 hours of sunshine every day, gave Muslims permission to follow the Mecca sun schedule. IN the case of Alaska, Muslims can follow the time of other parts of the United States during these dates. 

Ramadan in Spain 

As in any place in the world, Ramadan is usually celebrated in the family, having beautiful Ramadan decoration and nothing but the Sun rises, the whole family gathers and breaks their fast with some dates and a glass of milk or water. 

Ramadan as calculated 

Ramadan begins each year on the moon of the ninth month of the lunar calendar.

During a full month, fasting and festivities complement each other in a harmonious way in which reflection and charity are also protagonists. 

What is Ramadan on the Gregorian calendar?

Ramadan is always on the same day according to the Islamic calendar; because it is a lunar calendar. However, the day varies in the Gregorian calendar because it is a solar calendar; that causes a difference of almost eleven days each year.

Why is Ramadan done? 

In Arabic, "fast" is called "as-siam" or "as-saum." Both terms mean abstinence from something.

The observance of the fast in the month of Ramadan was prescribed in the month of Shaban in the second year of the Hijra (Hijrah). The same phenomenon of fasting existed before Islam between Ahlul Kitab (The People of the Book, that is, Jews and Christians).

The month of Ramadan is always the ninth month of this lunar calendar known as the Hijri calendar or pilgrimage calendar, whose beginning does not have a set date since it begins with the rise of the new moon. And therefore it is not celebrated the same month of the year, but it is advanced about 11 days each year according to our calendar. According to Muslim belief, "the gates of hell close and the gates of heaven open" during Ramadan. This is the month when the Prophet Muhammad received his first revelation of the Qur'an through the Archangel Gabriel and this occasion is celebrated as the Night of Destiny (Lailat al-Qadr).
 This month is a spiritual recharge that is done once a year. Fasting allows Muslims to test self-control or self-control of their desires. It serves as a reminder to distinguish between what is really needed and what is wanted and to live a balanced life, free of excesses and extravagances.

Ramadan Calendar 2021

These are the provisional dates since the current date of the beginning of Ramadan and the end of Ramadan 2021 is subject to the appearance of the moon.

H2 When can you eat in Ramadan?

 Ramadan, is the ninth month of islamic calendar, respected by Muslims around the world as the month of fast (At Arabic: صَوْم [ṣawm]), prayer, reflection and community.). Every year the month in which Ramadan is celebrated changes around the lunar month. It is a commemoration of the first revelation of the prophet Muhammad, the annual fulfillment of Ramadan is considered one of the Five Pillars of Islam  and its duration is from twenty-nine to thirty days, from the Crescent moon until the next crescent moon.

The fasts go from sunrise to sunset and it is fardh (required) except for adult Muslims who are Chronically ill, that they are traveling, elderlyembarazadasbreastfeedingDiabetic, or during menstruation. The first meal must be given before sunrise and is called shoo, and the nightly feast called iftarDespite the fact that a fetus has stating that Muslims living in regions with midnight Sun or with polar night they would have to follow the schedule of MecaIt is a common practice to follow the time of the nearest country in which the night can be differentiated from the day. 

How should Ramadan be done?

Fasting is, according to Islamic precepts, the duty of the adult Muslim, sound of mind, healthy, resident (who is not traveling), whether he is a man or a woman. As far as the woman is concerned, she must be out of menstruation and puerperium (quarantine). Therefore, the mentally ill, nor the minor, nor the woman during menstruation or the puerperium, as well as the pregnant woman, the woman who is breastfeeding who fears for her little one, nor the weak elderly, among others, should not fast.

Minors - according to Islamic definitions - are not obliged to fast, but there are parents who encourage their children to do so so that they get used to it and can practice it without much difficulty when they are older. Logically, they have to be healthy and able to do so without adverse repercussions.

There are cases when it is allowed to have breakfast in Ramadan:

  • The weak old man whose health may deteriorate.
  • The chronically ill person who does not have the possibility of recovering the days he has eaten.
  • Those who do very hard jobs and who do not have the possibility of finding another lighter job, intending to change it.

 

 

The pillars of fasting:

The pillars of fasting in Islam, both in Ramadan and in other months, are the following:

  1. Keep the intention in mind. It must be kept in mind and heart before the fajr(beginning of the time of the first prayer of the day) and can be said daily, or for the whole month from the beginning.
  2. Both take something before salat, even if it is only a glass of water (sunna) and something before the evening prayer, that is, just after sunset.
  3. The abstinence of everything that breaks the fast (drink, food or carnal relations, exaggerated mood swings) from dawn to sunset.
  4. Seek a state of peace that promotes the state of divine consciousness.

 

Duties that are preserved during the fast:

  1. As-suḥūr: consists of having some food at dawn, always before the fajr, no matter how little the amount of food or drink, even a little water, time that extends from midnight until the beginning of the time of prayer, before the first light of dawn, with the intention of fasting present in the mind, because the suḥurit is blessing and prosperity as Muhammad says.
  2. Breaking the fast immediately after sunset and at the beginning of the magrib prayer time: for the Prophet says: "Men remain in good as long as they do not delay breaking the fast after sunset."
  3. Praying and supplicating at the time of breaking the fast: for example, the prophet said: "The thirst was gone, the veins were hydrated and the reward was obtained with the permission of God."
  4. Abstaining from everything that contradicts fasting morally: since fasting is a great school of discipline and doctrine, both spiritual and moral, it is not limited to abstinence from eating or drinking only, but from everything that is bad word, bad act or bad thought. The fasting person should be lenient in case of being insulted or attacked by someone, and should avoid all obscenities.
  5. Be generous: the Muslim always has to be generous, but it is more so in the month of Ramadan.
  6. Increase the reading of the Holy Quran: during the month of Ramadan, in which the Quran was revealed, it should be recited more frequently than in other months. Furthermore, the Prophet said: "Fasting and the Holy Quran will intercede on behalf of the servant on the Day of Resurrection."
  7. Increase the practices: especially in the last ten days of the month of Ramadan, as the Prophet did.
