Ramadan Fasting:
Marhaban Ya Sahru Shiyam!

Ramadan is the most waited month in Islam. Because of what? because Ramadan is the King of Months in Islam. Why is Ramadan The King? Because Ramadan is the month of fully forgiveness (Maghfiroh). Ramadan is the most beautiful month in Islam. Because in Ramadan the gate of hell is closed, the gate of paradise is opened, and every single of evil will be jailed. Marhaban ya Ramadan! Marhaban ya Syahru Shiam!

One day, Muhammad was sitting alone in the wilderness near Mecca, when Angel Gabriel appeared before him. For the next ten days, the Angel taught him verses from the Quran, which they memorized. Islamic scholars believe that the first revelation occurred on the 27th night of Ramadan. This night is thus called Laylat-at-Qadr – Night of Power. According to the Quran, this is when God determines the coursework of the world for the following year.

Ramadan, the 9th month in the Moslem calendar, is a time when Moslems concentrate on their faith plus spend less time on the concerns of their everyday lives. it's a time of worship plus contemplation.

For iftar, the food prepared is unusual plus appears only during Ramadan. Iftar begins with dates, in imitation of what the Prophet ate during the iftar of the first fast of Ramadan. Then kanji is served. This is different to the kanji that Sri Lankans normally enjoy. Spices plus herbs plus often chicken or beef is added to this kanji, making this a meal in itself.

Throughout Ramadan, Moslems fast the entire month. This is called the fast of Ramadan. During this period, strict restraints are placed on the daily lives of Moslems. they're not allowed to eat or drink during the daylight hours. At the end of the day, the fast is broken with prayer as well as a meal called the iftar. In the evening following the iftar it's customary for Moslems to go out visiting relatives plus friends.

a number of the other dishes found during this month are surtapam – rolled pancakes with panipol (grated coconut mixed with treacle plus lightly spiced with cardamoms), pillawoos – crunchy, deep-fried banana batter, drizzled with treacle, ada – soft, juggery cakes, addukku Roti – layers of pancakes with a minced beef or chicken filling, baked in a pastry covering, pastol - rice flour plus coconut patty with tripe filling plus al-basara – shredded beef or chicken with semolina plus baked like a cake.
When the fast ends (the 1st day of the month of Shawwal) it's celebrated in a holiday called Id-al-Fitr – the Feast of fast Breaking. Gifts are exchanged. Friends plus relatives gather to pray in congregation plus for large meals.
