DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that people living in polar countries fast longer than people in other countries during Ramadan? During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise until dawn. This is why people in countries that have longer daylight fast longer. In some Islamic countries, work hours are cut down to give employees more time for prayer. Meanwhile, in Egypt, clocks are pushed back in to shorten days and prolong nights. During this sacred festival, Muslims eat an early morning meal called suhoor. They eat together before the sun rises and their daily fast officially begins. At sunset, the Maghreb or the evening prayer is recited. After which, they eat together to break the fast. This meal is called iftar. Evening meals are more grandiose and or often made up of sweets to make up for the energy lost during fasting. Moreover, Muslims eat dates in both iftar and suhoor as it is believed that Mohammed ate it to break his fast.
Apart from avoiding food and water consumption, Muslims should also abstain from impure thoughts, words, and actions. They are only allowed to consume literature, art, and songs that are halal. Luckily there are hundreds of Ramadan songs in English, Arabic, and many other languages to keep them entertained. Technology has also kept up with this holy festival. There are Ramadan calendar apps available to keep track of the fasting schedule. Nowadays it's easier to read sacred scriptures on-the-go through Quran reader apps for Android and iOS. However you want to celebrate this sacred holiday, do not forget what it signifies. Ramadan Mubarak!
