The significance of Ramadan

As per the Islamic beliefs and traditions, and the legends, it is believed that prophet Muhammad was given the holy book of Quran during Ramadan. It is also believed that the gates of hell are closed and gates of heaven open up during this time.

Probably, this is the reason why people give a special attention to God, and do good deeds like feeding poor and giving alms to the less privileged. As we know, a human being needs a society to survive and celebrate. That’s why people like to spend festivals and special occasions with their loved ones.

But, this years Ramadan is going to be very different than usual. It’s because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. So, people are in lockdown in their houses or wherever they have been staying. There are certain restrictions around the world. It has spread to nearly all the countries.

Fasting rules of Ramadan

It is a tradition for Muslims to fast every day from dawn to dusk during Ramzan month. This fast is also named as ‘roza’. A pre-fast meal that Muslims eat before sunrise is known as ‘Sehri’. And, the meal eaten after sunset during the fast is called ‘iftar’. Fasting is done in various religions. It is done to inculcate a sense of self-discipline, control, and also to have spiritual and religious consciousness. The same is also prescribed in Quran.
