Have you anytime experienced that your Muslim co-worker given holiday for the prayer or biased with that particular month when they all gave freedom for holiday or to leave early? This particular incidence during my working experience gave me rise to know more about the same holy festival. Though such holidays never given to me.smile.
Lets know what is Ramadan and why its important to know about it.
Prophet Mohammed said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.”Muslims believe it was during this month that God revealed the first verses of the Quran, Islam’s sacred text, to Mohammed, on a night known as “The Night of Power”.
During the entire month of Ramadan, Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset. It is meant to be a time of spiritual discipline — of deep contemplation of one’s relationship with God, extra prayer, increased charity and generosity, and intense study of the Quran.
But if that makes it sound super serious and boring, it’s really not. It’s a time of celebration and joy, to be spent with loved ones. At the end of Ramadan there is a big three-day celebration called Eid al-Fitr, or “the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast.” It’s kind of like the Muslim version of Christmas, in the sense that it’s a religious holiday where everyone comes together for big meals with family and friends, exchanges presents, and generally has a lovely time.
But yes every Muslim they react themselves nice and polite which they are not. I have seen many people who started working like so truthful in this month who actually they are not. Many says one can not watch Television or movies as its not holiness and what if they watch porn everyday other than this month?. What if doctors let patients waiting just to feel them big man and when Ramadan starts they go to pick up the patients from the waiting room? Is that really worth to pray or do fast?
How many of us experienced the same but this day the worship of god in every religion is changed to commercial purpose and people use religion as a medium which is worst.
I hope writing this is am giving my personal opinion and i have no meaning to hurt anyone religion belief.
