The holy month for Muslims - Ramadan - will be finished within the couple days by the great celebration in the Muslim countries – so called Eid al-Fitr. In the current 2013 year it will be 8th or 9th August. So, I would like to wish the happy celebration to all of the Muslims who are available in this forum.

Generally, Ramadan is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar and the month of the fasting. It lasts for 29–30 days. Fasting is obligatory for all adult Muslims, except who are travelling, sick, diabetic, pregnant etc. From dawn and until sunset, Muslims are refusing from food, drinking beverages, smoking, and sexual relations. All month they try to give more donations to poor and to give prays to Allah. The original reason of the holiday id the belief that the first revelation to Muhammad was sent down during the month of Ramadan.

The day of Eid is the first day of the month of Shawwal. In this day, Muslims around the world show a common goal of unity in their celebration. It continues for one, two or three days. In the first day Muslims wake until the sunset, wash, pray and wear the new clothes they bought before. Women wears new very decorated with the rich ornaments, jewelry, apply henna mehndi to decorate their hands. Before attending to the special Eid prayer, they have a light breakfast. Before pray, they give special charity money to poor known as Sadaqat-ul-fitr. Then, they visit and greeting each other, have a special food prepared in advance of the huge quantity, which they give to any guest coming to their home.

The main Islamic feature is Ramadan . It is a month of fasting that happens in the 9th month of their calendar. It is also known as a month of restraints for the whole body. The time for those who follow Ramadan is very tough. They get up early before sunrise to eat. After the sunrise until the night it is prohibited to take food and drink (including water).
Children in Muslim families are allowed to eat and will not join the adults in the full Ramadan fast. Usually children may fast for only one day a week or for a few hours at a time. At the end of Ramadan, known as Eid al-Fitr, children are given money and sweets to celebrate.
Ramadan has 14 centuries history.
During this month they don’t eat anything from dawn until sundown. The don’t eat, drink, smoke, or have sex during those hours.
During Ramadan muslims eat Sehri and only after sunset they allow drinking a glass of water.
Ramadan is an opportunity to clean the body, to be more spiritual and to improve the behaviour. People give thanks for having food at the end of the day, when millions of people don't have that luxury.
The exempt for fasting at Ramadan are the elderly, the sick, and anyone who has a medical condition.
Ramadan is followed by the moon calendar, so every year it moves back 11 days.
I think it is a good tradition to have some fasting procedure for the body. Other religions also have such kind of periods. For example Christians have 2 big posts when it is forbidden to eat meat and milk products.
Ramadan is much tougher than Christian post, because denies food completely during the day. The real sense of this fasting, in my opinion, is to be healthier and to pray the God with the clean sole.
Life is good!
