fasting

hello candy!

I've decided to actually give a brief summary of ramadhan but instead of saying it in my own words, i'm going to add some from wikipedia.

from wikipeida:-
Ramadan (Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān, Arabic pronunciation: [rɑmɑdˤɑːn]) (also Ramazan, Ramzan, Ramadhan, Ramdan, Ramadaan) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sexual activities from dawn until sunset. Fasting is intended to teach Muslims about patience, humility, and spirituality. It is a time for Muslims to fast for the sake of God (Arabic: الله‎, trans: Allah) and to offer more prayer than usual. During Ramadan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. As compared to the solar calendar, the dates of Ramadan vary, moving backwards about ten days each year depending on the moon. Muslims believe Ramadan to be the month in which the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

from me:-
ramadhan is a month where we muslims refrain ourselves from eating, drinking, and sexualy activities as stated from above. It also means that we can't put anything inside our body. for example we can't pick our nose, put a finger inside our mouths or clean the inside or ears. this part of months is mostly about the teaching us to be patience and spirituality. this part of months we have tarawikh which for me has lailatul qadar in the end of the month which is 10 days before it ends. this part of time is where "the night of decree or measures" or the holy night of the year where the sun is glowing white. so this is in my opinion.

im sure others has their own. don't be discreet if i make mistakes. im sorry and i apologies for any mishaps i've stated above.
