Brief history of Ramadan

The Quran (The Holy book in Islam) was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad during the powerful night called Laylat al-Qadr. Ramadan is a celebration of this revelation.

Ramadan is an obligatory month of sawm. It shows a Muslim's fear of God and oneness with Him. It is a month of repentance, generosity, love, and perseverance. The Holy month was first observed in 624 CE during the second year of Hijra.

Ramadan prayers

Muslims are required to pray in earnest during the Holy month. This is in addition to fasting. Below is a list of prayers that Muslim faithfuls are required to say during this period.

  • Prayer for Breaking the Fast
  • Prayer for forgiveness
  • Prayer for the first ten days of Ramadan
  • Prayer for the second ten days of Ramadan
  • Prayer for the third ten days of Ramadan
  • Prayers of Zikr

Requirements for fasting to be acceptable by Allah

The two crucial requirements for fasting to be acceptable in the month of Ramadan are listed below.

  • There must be a genuine intention or niyyah to fast before dawn. The genuine intention must not be said out loud. Instead, it should be embedded deep in an individual's heart and driven by obedience to Allah.
  • An individual must exercise self-restraint from any actions that could render the fast null and void. Discipline and the fear of Allah are must-haves to achieve this.

Ramadan rules you must follow

Below is a list of rules that Muslims must observe in the month of Ramadan.

  • Every adult Muslim who has experienced puberty, including young ones who have experienced puberty, must make the obligatory fast regardless of gender.
  • Muslim faithfuls are encouraged to eat sahur, or the pre-dawn meal, about 30 minutes before dawn or the Fajr prayer. The meal is Sunnah, and taking sahur is considered a blessing.
  • Individuals must take their iftar or after-fast meal soon after sunset. Sunset is marked when the sun's disk goes beyond the horizon and disappears.
  • Muslims must not quarrel, argue, or initiate disputes during this Holy month. Insulting words must be avoided. Instead, one must be disciplined and ethical. Unity in the community is encouraged.
  • Muslims should be generous to others during Ramadan. The generosity must not be driven by show-off.
  • Muslims must read the Quran at least once daily during the month of sawm.

Circumstances and actions that invalidate sawm

Below is a list of circumstances or actions that invalidate a fast.

  • The deliberate consumption of some food, smoking or drinking water, or alcohol.
  • When a woman starts her menstrual period or post-delivery bleeding, the fast becomes invalid, even if it is moments to sunset.
  • Engaging in sexual intercourse or any sexual activity such as self-stimulation leading to release in men or secretions in women makes the sawm invalid. Sex while fasting is forbidden.

NB: When a fast is broken, qadaa must be performed. Qadaa means making up for the days that one did not fast. Those who cannot complete the qadaa should pay fidiya, i.e., feed one poor person for each day they are unable to fast.

Why do Ramadan dates vary?

Ramadan dates vary because they are based on the lunar calendar rather than the solar calendar. A lunar month has 29.5 days on average, while a solar month has about 30/31 days except February. As a result, Ramadan starts about eleven days earlier than the previous year.
