    Ramadan is a very special month for the Muslims, as in it Muslims around the world perform various types of worship, the most important of them being fasting. This fasting of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, mandatory upon all adolescents and adults who have the ability. Ramadan is also the month in which the first revelation came to the Prophet Muhammad, and thus is called the “Month of the Quran”.

    God says in the Quran:
    “Fasting has been prescribed for you as it has been prescribed for those before you in order that you become of the God-conscious.” (Quran 2:183)

    During Ramadan, Muslims try to adhere to three types of worship - three of the five pillars of the Islamic faith.

    The first is Sawm, ie fasting. Throughout the month, most Muslims refrain from eating or drinking between dawn and sunset.

    The second is Zakat, which is charity - they are encouraged to give 2.5% of their annual income during Ramadan.

    The third is salat, which is to pray. Muslims are encouraged to pray five times a day. Traditionally, many also attend additional communal prayers, called Taraweeh, which take place every evening.

    Muslims are also encouraged to read the entire Quran during the month of Ramadan. This is a time of spiritual concentration and deep contemplation.

    Why do Muslims fast?
    The first fast is believed to have taken place in 624 CE, when the Prophet Muhammad persuaded the people of Medina to give up their food and donate it to the starving worshipers who followed him from Mecca.

    The reasons for fasting are many. It is seen as a way to come closer and focus more clearly on one's relationship with God. It is a reminder of one's dependence on God for sustenance and - by experiencing hunger and thirst - a way to feel more compassionate towards those in need.

    Fasting is also seen as a way to learn discipline and patience and to break bad habits, and some also see it as a way to cleanse the body of impurities.

    How and when does fasting take place?
    Observant Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. This means that they must refrain from eating, drinking (including water), smoking and having sex during the day, which is particularly difficult if Ramadan takes place in the spring, when the days are longer.

    You have to wake up early in the morning to stock up on food and water at the dawn meal called suhoor, and eat nothing for 16 hours. After the sun goes down, Muslims traditionally break their fast with friends and family at a ceremonial meal called iftar.

    How can I support a friend or colleague who is fasting?

    Traditionally, most Muslims continue to work and, if schools are open, attend classes during Ramadan, even if they cannot eat or drink for hours. If you work or live near someone who is fasting, here are some ways to actively show your support

    • Be patient: If a friend or colleague is irritable due to lack of sleep, food and water, don't take it personally.

    • If you manage someone at work who observes Ramadan, you may be able to help them by offering them flexible working hours that better accommodate their modified eating and sleeping schedules.

    • Be mindful of prayer times: Your friend or co-worker may not be able to host a video meeting or meet you for a walk outside at certain times of the day if they are praying or s he doesn't have the energy to exercise.

    • Do not ask a Muslim why he is not eating or if he is hungry! But you can wish him a blessed and happy Ramadan by saying Ramadan Mubarak to him.

    Should all Muslims fast?
    Not all Muslims are required to fast. There are special exemptions for young children, the elderly and anyone who is sick, pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating.

    Only God (the Father) can heal people from their diseases

    But the prophets Moses, Jesus, Muhammad and others cannot grant healing to people

    Unless God grants them a miracle of healing to prove the sincerity of their message

    If the healing was through Jesus or someone else, why didn't he heal all the sick people in hospitals?

    The night of Al-Qadr is the most virtuous night of the year. Allah says in the Qur’an: “We revealed it on the night of power [that is, Al-Qadr]. What will tell you what the night of power is? It is better than a thousand months.” Any action therein, for example, reciting the Qur’an, making remembrance of Allah, and so on, is better than acting for one thousand months which do not contain the night of Al-Qadr. It is preferred to seek this night:

    It is preferred to seek this night during the last ten nights of Ramadan, as the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, strove his best in seeking it during that time. We have already mentioned that the Prophet would stay up during the last ten nights, would wake his wives, and then would remain apart from them to worship.

    Scholars hold different opinions as to the night, which is the night of Al-Qadr.
    Which night is Laylat ul Qadr?

    Scholars hold different opinions as to the night, which is the night of Al-Qadr. Some are of the opinion that it is the 21st, some say the 23rd, others say the 25th and still others say it is the 29th. Some say that it varies from year to year but it is always among the last ten nights of Ramadan. Most scholars, though, vouch for the 27th. Ahmad recorded, with a Authentic chain, from Ibn Umar that the Prophet said: “He who likes to seek that night should do so on the 27th. ‘Ubayy ibn Kab said: By Allah, and there is no god but Him, it is during Ramadan-and He swore to that-and by Allah, I know what night it is. It is the night during which the Prophet ordered us to make prayers, the night of the 27th. Its sign is that the sun rises in the morning white and without any rays.” (Related by Muslim, Abu Dawud, Ahmad, and by At-Tirmidhi who called it Authentic.)
    Praying and making supplications during the night of Al-Qadr:

    Al-Bukhari and Muslim record from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Whoever prays during the night of Al-Qadr with faith and hoping for its reward will have all of his previous sins forgiven.”

    As to the supplication during the night of Al-Qadr, `A’ishah said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ ” (Related by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and by At-Tirmidhi, who called it Authentic.)
