Why Ramadan-ul-Mubarak is Sacred Month in Islam?

Ramadan begins: New moon marks a month of reflection and compassion.

Every year, Muslims worldwide wait to look forward to seeing the new crescent moon, which marks the formal start of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the most sacred month in Islamic culture.

Ramadan-ul-Mubarak is a month of fasting and abstinence from things that are deemed impure for the mind and body. Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, and impure thoughts between sunrise (Fajr) and dusk, and also focus on prayer and connecting with “ALLAH

Fasting teaches us to appreciate the agony and suffering of millions of people throughout the world who live in poverty and famine, leaving the participant feeling more grounded and appreciative of everything ALLAH provided them.

Shahadah: Believing there is no deity but God and Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) as ALLAH’s messenger

Zakat: Giving to charity

Salah: Praying five times a day

Hajj: Making the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once if able.


Fasting during Ramadan is one of Islam’s Five Pillars. The Qur’an commands all able Muslims (those who are mature and in good health) to fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramadan.

Zakat is an obligatory act and a Pillar of Islam. As such, charity giving is an important part of Muslim’s daily lives.

Giving to charity is a commendable deed in Islam at any time of year. However, when combined with the auspicious month of Ramadan, the donor’s blessings and recompense are increased twofold.
