Ramadan Kareeem 2009
Posted 8/15/09 , edited 8/20/09
Sallaam:) Ramadan Kareem and may this holy month washes away all your sins, gain more of good deeds and of course makes us closer to ALLAH!!

I wanted to know which day Ramadan starts for different countries??

I live in the U.A.E and it will start on Saturday the 22st of August!!

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Every day during this month, Muslims around the world spend the daylight hours in a complete fast.

Answer: During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours. As a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-sacrifice, Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking.

Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. We are to make peace with those who have wronged us, strengthen ties with family and friends, do away with bad habits -- essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. The Arabic word for "fasting" (sawm) literally means "to refrain" - and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words.

During Ramadan, every part of the body must be restrained. The tongue must be restrained from backbiting and gossip. The eyes must restrain themselves from looking at unlawful things. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The ears must refrain from listening to idle talk or obscene words. The feet must refrain from going to sinful places. In such a way, every part of the body observes the fast.

Therefore, fasting is not merely physical, but is rather the total commitment of the person's body and soul to the spirit of the fast. Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint; a time to cleanse the body and soul from impurities and re-focus one's self on the worship of God.

being muslim sucks... especially for women


we respect that u don't want to be a muslim ,, it's up to u

but you should respect our religion as we do.

and muslim's women happy with their royalties in islam

they are like pure pearl .. that no one has the right to touch or use it . to keep it safe and clean

and if u think that covering our hair doesn't give us freedom .. you are wrong

I want to ask u something ::

if someone give u 2 sweets ,,

one of them is covered well and the other one is opened and it seems like someone had touched it and maybe used it

which one will u choose ??

The covered one or the opened one ??

I belive that most ppl will choose the covered one ..


I hope u answer me .. and understand what i meant

It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar observing a community-wide fast. The annual fast of Ramadan is considered one of the five "pillars" of Islam. Muslims who are physically able are required to fast each day of the entire month, from sunrise to sunset. The evenings are spent enjoying family and community meals, engaging in prayer and spiritual reflection, and reading from the Qu'ran.

Thanks for asking:)
