Did you know amongst the vast population of Muslims in the nation there are few places in India that are known mainly for Ramadan celebrations? Yes, a crescent moon atop the palm trees on a fine sunset marks the beginning of the holy month where it is obligatory that every adult Muslim other than those who are pregnant or suffering from any kind of illness have to observe fast during this Ramadan month that would last for a duration of 29-30 days. This yearly observance is listed under the five pillars of Islam that marks as a commemoration for the first revelation of the holy book, Quran to the most beloved prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him). After thirty days of immense fasting, Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-ul- Fitr.
The fasting starts at dawn forth which the individual is refrained from drinking liquids or alcohols, smoking, consuming food or engaging in sexual activities and breaks the fast at dusk commonly called by names like Sahar and Iftaar. During fasting, it is seen that the people observing fast doesn’t lie, get himself or herself indulged in good deeds and charity coz it is all considered to be spiritual rewards what one would avail in his afterlife.
As I had mentioned before about the revelation of the Quran, it is mostly said by many that it was during the 27th day of this month that Quran was sent to the prophet and the day is called Laylat- a- Qadar also known as the “Night of Power” where Muslims pray the entire night for getting the divine grace upon them. Iftaar has always been special to both Muslims and Non- Muslims where we can see people plunging across the streets of cities like Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi to open their fast with varied mouth-watery delicacies like Mutton Haleem, Kebabs, Chicken Tikkas and sweets like Jalebis and much more.
