Diary enteries for Ramadam period.

Extracts from this document...


August 20th Today Ramadan started and it was the best day of the year. I know it means not eating during dawn and dusk, but I respect my religion and God, Allah. I had to get up at 5:30 this morning to have Breakfast before dawn, but I suppose it's not as bad as it would be in the summer.

I've always thought that non-Muslim people should join in, in Ramadan as it shows that everyone is equal and it show them to respect their God. If you are thinking in a religious way.

It looks as though food is more important than looking after a friend. I know it not very kind, but I think food is more important to them. 5th lesson, Welsh. I normally like Welsh, but today, however we were learning about food in welsh, but at least I can say "I don't want anything thanks". ...read more.


Congregational prayers are offered and special foods prepared. New clothes are often bought for the festival and presents may be given. Sending card wishing EID MUBARAK (a happy or blessed festival) is a growing custom. This has to be the best time of the year because you've done your job time for the party. Like a show you have fun performing it and have a celebration afterwards. As if to say 'well done that was.... Fantastic...!' You're just being congratulated for enjoyable month and also enjoying your self. * Ramadan is the ninth month on the Muslim calendar. * At the End of Ramadan there is a celebration called Eid-ul-Fitr and it lasts about two days. * Ramadan lasts for 30 days. * You can't do Ramadan if you're elderly, ill or too young. * If you give up you either have to start again or make a meal for 60 people at the end of Ramadan. * During Ramadan you do not eat between dawn and dusk. |By Lisa Whyte 7T Ramadan Lisa Whyte 7T ...read more.
