History of Ramadan

Fasting has a long history. The fasting that the earlier Uma’s also observed and the fasting that was obligatory on them can be understood from the following verses of the Holy Qur’an. Allah Ta’ala says, ‘O you who believe, fasting has been enjoined on you, as fasting was enjoined on those before you so that you may be pious and God-fearing’ (Surah Baqarah: verse 183). Same as During the era of Hazrat Adam A., there was a provision to keep three fasts every month. Hazrat Daud a., he used to fast one day after another.

Tafseer Haqqani cites the Torah and the Old Testament of the Bible as saying that the Jews needed to observe the expiation fast on the 10th day of the seventh month. It is revealed that the ancient Christians also kept that fast. Hazrat Musa, Fasted for 40 days on Mount Tur. Hazrat Daniel a.  Fasted for three weeks in total. From the Bible, it appears that Judeo-Christians also fasted. Even in the present era, their pious people have been observing fasting at different times of the year.

Hafez Ibn Hajar about the obligatory fasting of Islamic law. He said, before the fasting of Ramadhan was obligatory for Muslims, the fasting of 10 Muharram was obligatory. After that, when the order of the Ramadhan fast is revealed, the obligation of that fast is canceled.

 Allama Ibn Kasir Rah. In his Tafseer, Musnad Ahmad mentioned a long narration of Hazrat Mu’az Ibn Jabal RA. According to this tradition, at the beginning of Islam, fasting passed through three stages. When the Prophet migrated to Medina, he kept three fasts every month. He used to fast Ashura with him.

After that, fasting during the month of Ramadhan is obligatory. When the command to fast in the month of Ramadhan comes, Muslims are given the right to observe it as they wish. Then Allah Ta’ala said, ‘Those who find the month of Ramadan, they must fast. In which month fasting was obligatory, Allama Ibn Qasir said.  In the book “Al Bidaya Wan Nihaya”, Ramadan fasting was made obligatory before the Battle of Badr in the month of Shaban in the second year of Hijri. World famous muhaddis Allama Yusuf Bannuri. He said, 10 Sha’ban fastings were made obligatory in the second year of Hijri, and in that year, the order of Zakat was revealed along with the change of Qibla.

Why do Muslims observe Ramadan?

Fasting in the month of Ramadan is not just about abstaining from eating and drinking and abstaining from intercourse with one’s wife. Rather, abstinence from vanity and obscenity is called (real) fasting.  Fasting is an obligatory worship prescribed by Allah Ta’ala. One of the five pillars of Islam. Allah Ta’ala has ordered people to fast in the month of Ramadan. It is the great grace of Allah that He has given orders and prohibitions and advice to His servants at different times and different stages. Which includes fard (obligatory) and haram (forbidden) acts.

A similar obligation is fasting during the month of Ramadan. To achieve piety and abstinence by restraining oneself from all the evils of the world at the command of Allah. Fasting is a unique act of worship in Islam. Because it is only for Allah and Allah will reward it. Its main purpose is to achieve taqwa or fear of God. By fasting people refrain from all kinds of sins and Allah forgives all the sins of the past days. There are many virtues of fasting.  Even fasting has health benefits. Fasting in the month of Ramadan is obligatory in Islam, so Muslims keep fasting.

How to observe Ramadan?

If you are Muslim then you are lucky, you got one more Ramadan in life. So, to make Ramadan memorable, learn about the things to be done in the light of the Quran and science. And the reward of one prayer is equal to performing seventy prayers. Fasting in the month of Ramadan is obligatory for all able-bodied people. There are some misconceptions about fasting. Fasting is harmful to the body, fasting weakens the body, and if you have an ulcer, you cannot fast, these are all wrong ideas.

Fasting is not harmful to the body, but modern research has shown that during fasting or temporary food shortage, the toxins created inside the body cells are destroyed. The scientific name of this process is autophagy. Fasting during the month of Ramadan is obligatory in the Muslim religion, as is the month of Ramadan. In the month, every Muslim enters into the worship of Allah. Because Allah’s pleasure can be achieved through worship in the month of Ramadan. In the hope of getting that satisfaction, every Muslim performs pious deeds in the month of Ramadan. Let’s know what to do during Ramadan-


 Fasting during Ramadan is obligatory for every healthy, able-bodied adult male and non-menstruating adult woman. If a Muslim deliberately does not keep even one fast this month without Shariah reasons, he/she is considered a heinous crime.

Taraweeh prayer

 Both day and night of the blessed month of Ramadan are mainly for worship. Daytime worship is fasting which is obligatory in Shariah, and nighttime worship is Taraweeh prayer which is muaqadah in Sunnah.  Although this practice is not obligatory, its virtues and dignity are many. Hazrat Abu Huraira Radi.  Narrated, the Prophet, May God bless him and grant him peace, said, “Whoever prays Taraweeh in the night of Ramadan with full faith and belief, his/her previous sins are forgiven.” Sahih Bukhari: 2009.

Reciting the Qur’an

 Quran has a deep connection with fasting and Ramadan. This is why the Qur’an was revealed in Ramadan and this is why the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave great importance to reciting the Qur’an during Ramadan. In this context, Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Abbas Radi. He said, The Messenger of Allah, May God bless him and grant him peace, was the most generous and generous, and his generosity and generosity increased a lot in Ramadan. Every Ramadan Jibraeel a. Would meet with him and recite the entire Qur’an to each other.-Sahih Bukhari: 06

 It is mainly based on this Sunnah that Muslims recite and listen to the entire Qur’an Sharif once throughout Ramadan through Taraweeh. They read the Qur’an outside of prayer.

Eating Sahri

Sahri is the food that is eaten in preparation for fasting. Eating Sahri is Sunnah.  It is not necessary to eat on a full stomach, just a sip of water

 Even if you drink, the Sunnah of Sahri will be fulfilled. There is a hadith, the Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, “Eat Sahri.”  Because Sahri is blessed. – Sahih Muslim: 1095 In another hadith, eating Sahri is a blessed act. So don’t give up. Even if it is with a sip of water. Because, those who eat Sahri, Allah Almighty showers mercy on them and His angels pray for mercy for them.-Musnad Ahmad: 10702. It is mustahabb to eat Sahri in the morning near Sadek. However, it is makruh to delay so much that there is a fear of becoming Sadek in the morning.

To break the fast

Iftar is a meal that is eaten at sunset after fasting for the whole day. It is a very important practice in Sharia. Big rewards have been announced for this joyous period. Since Iftar is very blessed, it is forbidden to delay starting this blessed act.

To repent

Allah Ta’ala frees many people from hell in this month. As the Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, Allah frees many people from hell every night of this month.-Musnad Ahmad: 18794

 So we must seek forgiveness. Because Allah forgives the one who asks for forgiveness and repents.  Not to anyone else.

Forbidden acts of Ramadan

In the light of the Qur’an-Sunnah, what to do during Ramadhan is mentioned above. Now we will know the things to exclude. One must avoid sin at all times. But it is more important during fasting.  Because, due to sins, the results of fasting become a bard. The obligation of fasting is fulfilled but the light and spirituality of fasting are completely wasted. Following is some of the sins mentioned in the hadith.

No profanity and no noise

It is important to refrain from the obscene talk, noise, and quarrels while fasting. It is mentioned in the Hadith Sharif that none of you should speak obscenely and make noise when he/she is fasting. And if someone quarrels with him/her, or abuses him/her, then he/she should just say, I am fasting.

Don’t tell lies

Lies are called the mother of all sins. A hundred sins originate from one lie. Therefore, Allah and Rasulullah (SAW) were ordered to refrain from lying.

Abstain from backbiting

 Backbiting is a silent killer of destruction. You will never know when your deeds will be destroyed due to backbiting. Backbiting is worse than Zina. So gossip should be avoided.
