Ramadan is the time of year when we (Muslims) fast. Fasting doesn’t have anything to do with running, fasting means not eating from early in the morning to sunset.  We do this for a month, we don’t start on the first of the regular calendar because it is calculated using the sun and the Islamic calendar is calculated by the moon. Why you might ask, well back in ancient times people used to worship the sun and some people still do. In Ramadan every Muslim is peaceful and helpful and happy because were supposed to be. We can’t lie or cheat or steal etc. because that would break our fast. We are supposed to pray more and try to get closer to God. By the way, Christians and Muslims believe in the same God, the details are what separate us. Ok so back to fasting, we are supposed to eat around 5:30 am and stop around 5:50 then the first prayer of the day called Fajr comes along (we pray at certain times of the day) then we stop eating. Sometimes I get weak and feel like I’m going to pass out or something…then I get all cranky and stuff. Ok Amina, you can do this, just one more hour till sunset…………… my stomach hurts! Ok back to my point. During Ramadan were supposed to give to the needy more often. Well if you’re giving to some person who hasn’t eaten in like forever and you’re hungry, you tend to understand more and feel more sympathy for them. Another thing that makes Ramadan so special is how the Holy Quran was revealed in this month, I would go on about that but it would take up like 4 pages…… also my parents try to get me to watch absolutely no TV during Ramadan. Instead I listen to Islamic songs or watch Islamic movies that we have….or I go to you tube and do the same. O yea and today is the 9th day of Ramadan………… and ill try to do little blogs or something so you guys will know how I’m doing… BYE!!!
