Ramadan ,The month of fasting

Ramadan ,The month of fasting, originally uploaded by s3ood.

“Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. For more than a billion Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a “month of blessing” marked by prayer, fasting, and charity. Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. Muslims practice sawm, or fasting, for the entire month of Ramadan. This means that they may eat or drink nothing, including water, while the sun shines. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars (duties) of Islam. As with other Islamic duties, all able Muslims take part in sawm from about age twelve. Fasting serves many purposes. While they are hungry and thirsty, Muslims are reminded of the suffering of the poor. Fasting is also an opportunity to practice self-control and to cleanse the body and mind. And in this most sacred month, fasting helps Muslims feel the peace that comes from spiritual devotion as well as kinship with fellow believers.”

Sort of dizzy
People get silly
Back to my childish
Search for fantasy”
