RAMADAN MUBARAK !! (Blessed Ramadan)
Yesterday the holy month of Ramadan has begun. It starts at different days around the world, due to determining the start with the sighting of a new moon.
Muslims believe that this is the month when the revelation of the holy Qur’an came down, and all previous revelations as well. During Ramadan we abstain from food/drink/intimacy during sunlight hours, but it’s also a time of reflection, sharing your wealth and getting closer to Allah (God) through nightly prayers and reading the Qur’an.
I won’t be posting on my blog during this month (6th june – roughly 7th july) because I want to retreat a bit from my online activities, if you follow me via instagram I will occasionally post something on there 🙂
Wishing you all a great month, whether you are celebrating or not. 🙂
Much Love and Salam from the Netherlands!
P.S. This interesting video explains a bit about the moon sighting phenomenon in relation to Islam:
