History Of Ramadan
Ramadan was a month before Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) mission but fasting was not made compulsory at that time. It was the year 2nd A.H. after 15 years passed of the prophet’s mission. It was believed that on the 27th night of the month of Ramadan, The Holy Quran was revealed to Muhammad (PBUH), this night we called Laylat ul-Qadr.
Laylat ul-Qadr night is the most blessed night for Muslims and lies in the final ten nights of Ramadan. This night is considered the best of thousands of nights and reciting Quran during this month of Ramadan will give a person blessings of Allah.
Allah revealed in the surah al-Qadr that “The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.”
In this month Allah listens to the prayers, Allah Subhan Wa Taa’La accepts prayers and forgives the sins, and frees people from hellfire every night.
Together everyone breaks the fast. The meal of the breaking fast is Iftar. Before the start of fasting, the meal is called suhoor. So, fasting is the process from suhoor till Iftar.
After the completion of Ramadan comes Eid ul-Fitr which we celebrate as a feast of fast-breaking. It is a three days celebration. Family and friends gather together to celebrate Eid, On Eid special prayer for Eid.
Fasting In Islam is done even before the month of Ramadan from Adam AS to Isa AS every prophet has fasted for the sake of Allah. For us, Ramadan was made the obligatory month of fasting by Allah Subhan Wa Taa’La as Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) has spent some time in Gare E Hira where he used to do Ibadat in the daytime and avoid eating and drinking this was so much loved by Allah Subhan Wa Taa’La that Allah had made Ramadan fard on us because Prophet Mohammad had also done the same.
