Why is Ramadan done?
In Arabic, “fasting” is called “as-siam” or “as-saum”. Both terms mean abstinence from something.
The observance of fasting in the month of Ramadan was prescribed in the month of Shaban in the second year of the Hijra (Hijrah). The same phenomenon of fasting existed before Islam among Ahlul Kitab (The People of the Book, ie Jews and Christians).
The month of Ramadan is always the ninth month of this lunar calendar known as the Hijri calendar or pilgrimage calendar, the beginning of which does not have a set date since it begins with the rising of the new moon. And therefore it is not celebrated in the same month of the year either, but rather 11 days earlier each year according to our calendar. According to Muslim belief "the gates of hell close and the gates of heaven open" during Ramadan. This is the month when the Prophet Muhammad received his first revelation of the Qur'an through the Archangel Gabriel and this occasion is celebrated as the Night of Destiny (Lailat al-Qadr).
This month is a spiritual recharge that is done once a year. Fasting allows Muslims to check their self-control or self-control of their desires. It serves as a reminder to distinguish between what is really needed and what is wanted and to live a balanced life, free from excesses and extravagances.

H2 When can you eat in Ramadan?
Ramadan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar , respected by Muslims around the world as the month of fasting ( Arabic : صَوْم [ṣawm]), prayer, reflection and community.). Every year the month in which Ramadan is celebrated changes around the lunar month. It is a commemoration of the first revelation of the Prophet Muhammad , the annual observance of Ramadan is considered as one of the Five Pillars of Islam and its duration is from twenty-nine to thirty days, from the waxing moon to the next waxing moon.
Fasting runs from sunrise to sunset and is fard h (obligatory) except for adult Muslims who are chronically ill , traveling, elderly , pregnant , lactating , diabetic , or menstruating . The first meal must be eaten before dawn and is called suhur , and the all-night feast is called iftar . Despite a fatwa stating that Muslims living in regions with midnight sun or polar night would have to follow Meccan time , it is common practice to follow the time of the nearest country where night can be differentiated from day.
How should Ramadan be done?
Fasting is, according to Islamic precepts, the duty of the adult Muslim, sane, healthy, resident (not traveling), whether male or female. As regards the woman, she must be out of menstruation and the puerperium (quarantine). Therefore, the mentally ill should not fast, nor the minor, nor the woman during menstruation or puerperium, as well as the pregnant woman, the woman who is breastfeeding who fears for her little one, nor the weak elderly, among others.
Minors —according to Islamic definitions— are not required to fast, but there are parents who encourage their children to do so so that they get used to it and can practice it without much difficulty when they are older. Logically, they have to be healthy and able to do it without adverse repercussions.
There are cases in which it is allowed to eat breakfast in Ramadan:
- The weak old man whose health may worsen.
- The chronically ill and who does not have the possibility of recovering the days eaten for breakfast.
- Those who perform very hard jobs and who do not have the possibility of finding another lighter job, with the intention of changing it.
The pillars of fasting :
The pillars of fasting in Islam, as well in Ramadan as in other months, are the following:
- Keep the intention in mind. It should be kept in mind and heart before fajr (beginning of the time of the first prayer of the day) and it can be said daily, or for the whole month from its beginning.
- Both take something before the salat, even if it is just a glass of water (sunna) and something before the evening prayer, that is, just after sunset.
- Abstinence from everything that breaks the fast (drink, food or carnal relations, exaggerated mood swings) from dawn to sunset.
- Seek a state of peace that promotes the state of divine consciousness.
Duties that are preserved during fasting:
- As-suḥūr: consists of taking some food at dawn, always before the fajr , no matter how little the amount of food or drink, even if it was a little water, a time that extends from midnight until the entrance of the moment of prayer, before the first lights of dawn, with the intention of fasting present in mind, since the suḥur is blessing and prosperity as Muhammad says.
- Break the fast immediately after sunset and at the beginning of the time of the maghrib prayer: for the Prophet says: "Men remain in good so long as they do not delay breaking the fast after sunset."
- Praying and begging at the time of breaking the fast: for example, the prophet said: "The thirst was gone, the veins were hydrated and the reward was achieved with God's permission."
- Abstaining from everything that contradicts fasting morally: since fasting is a great school of discipline and doctrine, both spiritual and moral, it is not limited to abstinence from eating or drinking only, but from everything that is bad word, wrong act or wrong thought. The fasting person should be lenient in case of being insulted or attacked by someone, and should avoid all obscenities.
- Be generous: the Muslim always has to be generous, but it is more so in the month of Ramadan.
- Increase reading of the Holy Quran: During the month of Ramadan, when the Quran was revealed, it should be recited more frequently than in other months. Furthermore, the Prophet said: "Fasting and the Holy Qur'an will intercede in favor of the servant on the Day of Resurrection."
- Increase the practices: especially in the last ten days of the month of Ramadan, just as the Prophet did.
