No one can deny how beautiful Ramadan is around the World .No matter how poor or rich you are ... Ramadan is for all and brings the best for all indeed :)

One of the things that I love is checking how many muslims is doing around the world in Ramadan , by going over the web and viewing many photos from different places and sites all presenting Ramadan Days from muslim cultures !

I love how photos carries something or sometimes many things ..... or just all what you need to learn or remind yourself at the moment... what needs to be corrected in your life or just what needs to be done or what you need to change about your life your self. 

Observe to learn ..... Observe to Appreciate..... Observe to cherish....Observe to feel ... Observe to care ..... Observe to share .... Observe to be proud ... Observe to teach ..Observe to love ... Just look at the photos and compare them of what you've got in your Ramadan   

Since I got many Readers from all over the world , I think they deserve to know a little about our Holy Month Ramadan :)

What is Ramadan ?

Ramadan is considered as the holiest season in the Islamic year and commemorates the time when the Qu’ran (Islamic holy book) is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. This occurred on Laylat Al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of the month.Over a billion Muslims around the world every year awaits for the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan ends when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again, marking the new lunar month’s start. Eid-al-Fitr is the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

When does Ramadan Begin ?

Ramadan traditionally begins with a new moon sighting, marking the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar

What's so special about Ramadan ?

Its the Islamic month of fasting , Many Muslims (except children, the sick and the elderly) abstain from food, drink, and certain other activities during daylight hours in Ramadan.

 Fasting teach us Muslims to practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate.

What's the spirit of Ramadan ?

A muslim should carry purity of both thoughts and actions specially during Ramadan . The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.

People are encourged to give more charities to the poor in this Holy month and help the need. Also people tend to read the entire Qur'an during Ramadan.

 Muslims tend to recite the entire Qur'an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, which are held in mosques every night of the month, during which a section of the Qur'an is recited.

A Somali refugee girl reads the holy Koran
Students are split into groups as they attend a Quran recitation class at an Islamic boarding school in Medan, North Sumatra

Children break fast at King Fahad Mosque on the first day

Thousands of Muslims circle the Kaaba inside the Grand Mosque
in Islam's holiest city of Mecca

With all of the tragedies going on in the world from wars of revolutions to people losing their beloved ones because of Hunger ....

I send my prayers from Kuwait my country

May Allah help all those who are in Need

May Allah spread peace among Mankind

May Allah save those suffering Souls

Having Thoughts that I might tour up many destination during next Ramadan ...from viewing the photos I feel I can get more of Ramadan in other spots of the world :)
