History of Ramzan


The name Ramzan (also read as Ramadan) is the ninth month is the Arabic Culture even before the arise of Islam. The word Ramzan denots intense Heat. Qur’an proclaims that "fasting has been written down as mandatory upon you, as it was upon those before you.

Laylat al-Qadr is considered the most holy night of the year, as it is the night in which the Qur'an was revealed to Muhammad. Muslims believe it to have occurred on an odd-numbered night during the last 10 days of Ramzan. Ramzan ends with EID-UL-FITR.

During the month following Ramadan, called Shawwal, Muslims are encouraged to fast for a further six days, known as as Sitta al-Bīḍ, or "the white six." When fasting is over, Muslims go to mosques in good clothes to pray their first Eid prayer. They give out presents to the young ones and greet their friends and families, thank Allaha for what he has given them.

A person during Ramzan might break it accidentally, if he/she has forgotten it. This can generally happen in the early days of Ramzan because that person might have not yet been acclimated into fasting from sunrise till sunset. In such cases one might spit out the food being eaten or end the forbidden activity, immediately upon remembering the fast.

The person who has practiced Ramzan properly, will have all their past sins forgiven. There is also a belief that during Ramzan Heaven's gates are opened, and Hell's gates are closed.
