We are now a few days away from the start of Ramadaan, the holy month of fasting observed by Muslims. Ramadaan is a time when everyone is rejoicing and enjoying moments of holy blessings.
One of the most well-known aspects of the holy month is fasting between sunrise and sunset. Fasting is one of the “five pillars of Islam”, a set of obligations that every Muslim should follow in order to live a good life. The other pillars are faith, prayer, charity, and the pilgrimage to Mecca.
Fasting means abstaining from food, drink, smoking, bodily desires, swearing, gossip, or other sinful acts, during daylight hours. Fasting itself brings about a revolutionary change both physically and spiritually in the body.
Aside from the increased level of spirituality that is associated with the practice of fasting, there are numerous health aspects also.
At the end of Ramadaan, Muslims celebrate the day called Eid, giving thanks to God almighty who gave them the opportunity to fast.
For us, your Christian friends, it is a propitious time to further strengthen our relationships with you, by greeting you, meeting you on this occasion, and, where possible, by sharing an Iftar with you.
May the holy month of the revelation of the Qur’an usher peace, happiness and prosperity upon all.
