Ramadan Mubarak!!!

Here is a little info...

Ramadan is one of the twelve Arabic months. It is a month which is venerated in the Islamic religion, and it is distinguished from the other months by a number of characteristics and virtues, including the following:

Allah has made fasting this month the fourth pillar of Islam, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan i.e. is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasts) that month…”[al-Baqarah 2:185]

On a side note:

Ramadan really is one of the best times of the year for me, because I get to see everyone that I haven’t had time to see or hang out with any other time of the year, we have parties, dinner date, and hangout. For me Ramadan is a good time to relax and reflect on the way my life is going and try to become a better person.
