#WOTD: Ramadan

Hello, fellas! How was your last Sunday of June? I hope it was great…

Tonight, we’ll have #WOTD session about Ramadan. Let’s start!

Ramadan is the ninth month of Islamic calendar. In this month, all adult Muslims are obliged to fast. The word was first used in 1590s. Ramadan is a noun. Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramiḍa or ar-ramaḍ, which means scorching heat or dryness. Based on the Islamic cultures, Ramadan is the month in which our excessive desires as human being are burnt through fasting. After a month of fasting, of burning our negative nature, human will be “born again” on the Eid al-Fitr day.

Let’s try and use the word in a sentence, fellas!

Most Islamic countries have specific laws regarding working hours during Ramadan.

That’s all I can share, fellas. Thank you for your attention. Good night and have a good rest.

See you tomorrow.
