Ramadan from Monday in India
Ramadan India In India, the month of Ramadan starts from Monday which means we, any Muslim currently stay in the country, will resume our fast from 25th of September and end up (probably) on October 24. People in Indonesia and some other countries including Saudi Arabia have already started their fast on Sunday, September 24. In London Ramadan started even earlier on Saturday 23th.
Any day among those days is justified from Islamic jurisprudence point of view and therefore, should not be considered as contradictory views. The substance is observing the fasting, not conflicting the differences.
For non-Muslim who has yet to know about Ramadan Fasting, here’s a quick guide:
Eating, drinking and smoking are not allowed between dawn (fajr), and sunset (maghrib). During Ramadan, Muslims are also expected to put more effort into following the teachings of Islam by refraining from sexual intercourse (during fasting), violence, anger, envy, greed, lust, angry and sarcastic retorts, and gossip. People are meant to try to get along with each other better than they normally might. All obscene and irreligious sights and sounds are to be avoided. Purity of both thought and action is important. The fast is an exacting act of deep personal worship in which Muslims seek a raised level of closeness to God. The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.
Happy Fasting for those who observe it
