Why Are The Days of Ramadan Holy?
Ramadan is the holiest of spiritual activities undertaken by Islamists. It has a duration of one month, charted by the moon as Islam uses a lunar calendar of 354 days. Ramadan celebrates the time Mohammed spent in a cave near Mecca writing down the verses of the Qur'an as dictated by the angel Gabriel. For Islamists, Ramadan is a time to immerse themselves in prayer and self reflection. It is also a time to demonstrate their faith by doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends. Ramadan is also a time of fasting during daylight hours. The fast reminds Islamists of the goodness that can be found in self discipline, self restraint and generosity. During the fast, Islamists are reminded of people in the world who may not have enough to eat.
