Ramzan or Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic schedule. Muslims celebrate it worldwide as a month of fasting, charity, prayer, reflection, and community. In 2020, the month of Ramadan starts from 23rd April and ends on 23rd May. Unfortunately, this year the Islamic festival will have to be celebrated in one of the trying times of the world. Ramzan amid Coronavirus pandemic is followed by lockdowns and curfews around the world.
During the period of Ramadan, Muslims observe fast from nightfall until sunrise. It is assumed that Prophet Muhammad got the principal revelation during Ramzan. Towards the end of the Ramadan month, there is a huge celebration called Eid-ul-Fitr to commend the finish of the fast. Eid-ul-Fitr is commended on wearing one’s best garments, giving endowments, having dinner with one’s family. Muslims likewise utilize this opportunity to request absolution for sins and to worship Allah. Here’s how one must follow the rituals of holy Ramzan with the rules of lockdown in India.
Do’s & Don’ts –
- First thing, do wish your family, friends and, near ones. Send prayers, blessings, messages, and SMS, while you don’t send gifts keeping in mind the safety of your dear ones.
- Read Namaaz while staying at home only. Don’t gather in mosques or at any public areas for Namaaz. There are people who think lockdown is a hurdle on offering prayers to Allah, it is not. Allah also wants his humans to be safe from one another.
- During Suhoor and Iftaar, eat abundant healthy foods like bread, fruits, vegetables, etc. Do maintain social distance and don’t make gatherings for dining and meals. Better to protect the community instead of endangering the community.
Wishes & Greetings –
