Enjoy the month of Ramadan. Know about it and cheer for the people fasting

a very happy ramadan to all

Wishing everyone a very happy Ramadan. The holy month of Ramadan has started today in which Muslims fast for 30 days.

It is considered to be a very big event in most of the Arabian Peninsula, much of the Gulf nations and many other parts of the world.

I am in Oman and the atmosphere around is that f happiness and excitement. United Arab of Emirates is booming with discounts and big sales all around. Oh! Its party time!

Muslims observe the ninth month of the lunar calendar as the month of fasting, whereby they abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset.

People here believe in giving and seek blessings from everyone. They abstain from bad words and bad activity from which God might get angry.

Arabic people are good people ( as much as my experience says). Yesterday my neighbours sent their kids with 10 kg rice and flour. I was surprised and could not understand why she had sent all that. Then they told me that it is Ramadan tomorrow. So, it was a gift for us!

In Ramadan, people fast for a month and eat only once a day.
It’s a big occasion and blessings are expected from everyone.

People are not allowed to roam around with food at public places. And work places have a half day. My husband is loving this thing J

With three months in Oman I am getting to know the customs. I will share the next when I get to know something else.

Ramadan Karim!
