6th May mark as the 1st Ramadhan for all Muslim in the world.
Indeed, this holy month is celebrate by all Muslim once in a year. Ramadhan is a month where all Muslims try to give more worship towards Allah SWT and improve self-discipline by practicing better way in Islam.
The common practice during Ramadan is fasting from dawn to sunset. The pre-dawn meal before the fast is called the suhur, while the meal at sunset that breaks the fast is the iftar. Then, Muslims also practicing Tarawih prayer after Isyak. Tarawih can only be practice during Ramadhan month.
Muslims also engage in increased prayer and charity during Ramadan. Ramadan is also a month where Muslims try to practice increased self-discipline. This is motivated by the Hadith, especially in Al-Bukhari that “When Ramadan arrives, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of hell are locked up and devils are put in chains.”
In addition to fasting, Muslims are encouraged to read the entire Quran. Some Muslims perform the recitation of the entire Quran by means of special prayers, called Tarawih. These voluntary prayers are held in the mosques every night of the month, during which a whole section of the Quran (juz’, which is 1/30 of the Quran) is recited. Therefore, the entire Quran would be completed at the end of the month. Although it is not required to read the whole Quran in the Tarawih prayers, it is common.
Ramadhan is a holy month for all Muslims, where everyone will try to be better in practicing Islam. It is also good to make a turning point during Ramadhan to be a better Muslim and practicing Islam in proper way. Indeed Allah is the Most Merciful and Forgiving.
