Ramadan is a holy month of Islamic calendar. It is a month when holy book, named Qura’an was revealed on a Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). In this month, Muslims try to do more and more good deeds. This month is a sort of practice for the Muslims so that they could maintain the practices throughout the year, as in Ramadan.
It is obligatory on Muslims to “Fast” in this holy month. Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast (dry fasting) is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period. Fasting practices may preclude intercourse and other activities as well as food.
By being hungry and thirsty for the longer period of time, Muslims become more compassionate for the needy people. They get motivated to feed the poor and needy people.
It is medically proven, that fasting is very much beneficial for health. Some scientists have indicated that a fast will cause white blood cells to break down during the fasting, resulting in new ones needing to be built when the fast is broken, resulting in the replacement of old damaged ones.
After fasting, people get to know the importance of food which is ordinary for them in the rest of the months. By knowing the importance of food, they become more concerned about not to waste the food. They do more charity work.
