What is Ramadan? 

The ninth month in the Islamic calendar is Ramadan. Depending on when the Shawwal Moon is seen, the month might last anywhere from 29 to 30 days. On the first day of Shawwal, the Islamic holiday known as Eid ul Fitr is celebrated. 

Ramadan is also the holy month of the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) received his first revelation of the Quran. The Arabic word “Ramad” which denotes intense heat or a lack of moisture is where the word “Ramadan” originates. Therefore, the definition of Ramadan is giving up all food and/or liquids from sunrise to sunset. 

Fasting is known in Arabic as “sawm,” and it is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Ramadan revolves around fasting, which is mandatory for all Muslims who are physically and mentally capable of observing this holy month. 

Who is free to fast in Ramadan?

While it is mandatory for all able-bodied Muslims to fast during the month of Ramadan, Allah has granted forgiveness and forgiveness to those who are unwilling to fast for valid reasons. 

Allah has made it very plain in Surah Al-Baqarah (2:185) that tourists and the ill are not required to fast throughout Ramadan. The following individuals are likewise excused from fasting:

  • People who are physically or mentally unwell
  • Passengers
  • Women who are conceiving
  • Ladies who are nursing or expecting.
  • Elderly Individuals should be fasting to worsen their condition
  • Youngsters who are not yet in adolescence

What are the Objects that render the Fast invalid?

For Muslims, Ramadan holds great significance. This month has been extremely fortunate. During this holy month, all Muslims are expected to fast, however, Allah is exempt from this requirement. 

Although Allah acknowledges your fasting based on your good intentions and acts, certain circumstances render your fast invalid. The following items render a person’s fast invalid:

  • Taking medicine through your ears or nose
  • Willfully throw up
  • While gargling, water inadvertently slides down the neck
  • Prospering due to intimate interaction with a female
  • Ingesting things
  • Taking a cigarette puff.
  • Eating or drinking after inadvertently breaking the fast and presuming that this is the end of the fast
  • Eating after Sehri the period at which the fast begins before Fajr Salah but pretending that it was before Suhoor or Subh Sadiq
  • Consuming Iftar a meal to be eaten after completing the prohibition of eating at Maghrib Salah before sunset under the mistaken impression that it is shortly after sunset

What should I do in Ramadan?

Reciting the Quran

  • Since the entire month of Ramadan is devoted to reciting the Quran, it is also known as the month of the Quran. One way Muslims finish reciting the Holy Quran is with tarawih prayers, which are typically done in mosques. These prayers are called “Mustahab” for Muslims who read the entire Quran throughout Ramadan and make an effort to finish it; doing so is an action that will be appreciated but exclusion from it is not punished. 

Locate Laylatul Qadr.

  • The “Night of Power,” or Laylatul Qadr, is one of the most eagerly anticipated evenings of the Islamic year. Which midnight is Laylat ul Qadr is a mystery. To ensure discovering Laylatul Qadr, Muslims are urged to spend the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, and 29th nights of Ramadan in prayer and performing good actions, adhering to the genuine instructions of the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.).

Pay attention to Itikaf 

  • Itikaf, a Sunnat-al-Muaqidah, is observed during the final ten days of Ramadan. It begins after sunset on the twentieth and ends when the moon sees for Eid. It stays the same for the 29 or 30 day Ramadan months. 

Perform Taraweeh

  • Muslim communities offer Taraweeh prayers every night during Ramadan, following the Isha prayers. Before the month closes, a Hafiz accompanies the prayer and recites short passages from the Quran, giving consistent access to the whole quran.

Paying Zakat

  • Another key component of Islam is zakat, and in the month of Ramadan, zakat turns even more significant. It is charged on properties owned for more than one lunar year and is a means of purifying your riches for Allah’s purpose. It is mandatory to distribute the zakat collected to the underprivileged and worthy individuals.


  • Before Ramadan finishes and Eid al-Fitr arrives, Muslims must make Zakat al-Fitr, an obligatory donation of an essential food item. Contributions can be made on Laylat al-Qadr, the final ten odd nights of Ramadan, or in advance. Muslim Aid provides healthy meals for individuals in dire straits for about £5 (which approx 525 INR) per person.
