[2018] Ramadan Celebration

Recommended Posts

Ramadan Mubarak! Happy Ramadan, Everyone!

 

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year according to the Islamic Lunar calendar. It takes place to observe the revelation of the first chapters of the Quran that were granted to Muhammad by Allah, or God. Its other known names are Ramadhan or Ramazan and is celebrated in nations all across the globe! Islam, being the 2nd largest religion in the world, showcases this event by being celebrated in unique ways in each country.

 

It’s considered to be the holiest time of the year. Ramadan begins at sundown when the moon is visible in the sky. It’s a time of prayer, fasting, self-reflection, and casting away the bad and bringing in the good. It is a time to seek amendments for any sins, faults or mistakes a person may have made. During this period, eating, drinking, smoking and any activity that is considered to be against good-manner is forbidden (including minor arguments). The focus is to cleanse oneself of any negativity, spiritual or bodily. Many people throughout Ramadan choose to provide and donate to charities of any sort.

 

Fasting starts everyday 10 minutes before dawn, or adzan subuh. The duration of the fast is called Ismak. After sunset, an individual is allowed to break the fast until the sun rises again the next day. The ending of Ramadan is called “Id al-Fitr”, meaning "the Feast of Fast-Breaking". During this time gifts and well wishes are exchanged with friends/family.

 

Ramadan starts on May 15th and ends on June 14th this year. However we will be ending it a little shorter due to wanting to give as many celebrations and events a chance as we can!

 

May 15th - May 29th

 

Also a special thanks to the following people for helping us out with a few questions we had concerning the event! @Sugi, @MayVenn, @IrisNeko, and @Thrust

 

To celebrate Ramadan, we're encouraging all of you to bring awareness to the main message of this event: 'positivity and casting out negativity'


Every time you participate in the many tasks available, you will receive an 'x' amount of points.

 

Current Task (26th-29th)
A drawing/poem depicting the end of the celebration. This can include a self-reflection of your progress throughout Ramadan, and/or inclusion of the new positivity you have brought into your life.

 

Points

3 A drawing for another member that is participating in the event. Alternatively, a poem conveying appreciation and gratitude for them. (Only two gifts for one person, and you must PM an Event Mod to let them know who you're gifting).
