Ramzan (Roza)

 Ramzan (Roza)

Ramzan – The Most Holy Month for Muslims across the Globe
Ramzan, which is more popular by the name of Ramadan, is considered to be amongst the Five Pillars of Islam. The festival is celebrated in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and lasts anywhere between 29 and 30 days, during which all able bodied adult Muslims are required to fast from sunrise to sunset. The word Ramadan is derived from the Arabic word “ramida”, which means blazing heat or dryness and is believed to be the month in which Muhammad received the first revelation. The month of Ramzan generally begins a day or two after the sighting of the new moon, which also marks the beginning of the new month.

During the holy month, Muslims are required to refrain from activities such as drinking, smoking, sexual activities and in some cultures even swearing. During the fasting period, people can eat and drink enough to sustain them throughout the day, but only before the sun rises, which is known as suhoor. After that they cannot eat or drink anything until after the sun sets, and any meals taken after dusk are called Iftar.  Depending upon the day, people are required to offer additional prayers and recite the Holy Quran, besides abstaining from all types of sinful activities.

The holy month of Ramadan is also the time for Muslims to focus their energy and thoughts on the goal of cleansing their souls. As a part of this process, people are forced to exercise restraint by bearing hunger, curbing physical desires and practicing self-discipline and self-control. In addition, they are required to show empathy towards people who are less fortunate and take part in activities of generosity and charity. It is quite common to see people donating not only food but other items of everyday need in large quantities during the holy month of Ramzan.

The end of Ramzan is based on the sighting of the crescent moon, which is when the festival of Id-ul-Fitr is celebrated. This festival is celebrated with much zeal and fervor as it indicates the end of the month long fasting, during which the people are believed to have reverted back to their more natural lifestyles and conquered the vices of world. People generally, cook traditional delicacies and wear new clothes to express their happiness and gratitude as well as celebrating their ability to have successfully completed the fast.
