Here are 5 things to know about Ramadan

1.Ramadan is not only related to food.

During Ramadan, smoking and sex are forbidden, from dawn to sunset. Showering, going to the pool or brushing your teeth is not forbidden but drinking water means breaking the fast. Saliva is the only liquid that can be swallowed.

2. To do Ramadan is also to take care of others.

At the end of Ramadan, almsgiving is obligatory. It is paid either directly to a person in need, or to a mosque.

3. Some people may be exempt from Ramadan

Ramadan is only obligatory after puberty. Women who are pregnant, who are breastfeeding and those who are seriously ill or elderly are exempted. They are invited to offer a meal to the poorest for each day not fasted. Women who have their period, travelers, or patients must make up the number of days not fasted before the next Ramadan.

4. Ramadan is one of the 5 pillars of Islam.

The 5 pillars of Islam correspond to the duties that a Muslim must fulfill. They are: profession of faith, prayer, almsgiving, Ramadan, pilgrimage to Mecca.

5. The dates of Ramadan are not always the same.

Ramadan begins precisely when the first crescent of the new Moon is observed. Dates vary from one country to another, usually a day or two. Each year, the dates fall by an average of 11 days because the Hegira calendar is between 354 and 355 days and not 365.

    All the info are correct except prohibiting taking shower and brushing teeth. You can do both of them while fasting unless you didn't swallow water

    Doing miswak is allowed only, most scholars suggest that use of toothpaste breaks the fast as particles are sure to go down the throat no matter the precautions.

    Why is it that some Christian Americans think the world revolves around them? They are like a child jealous of the attention their parents give when another child comes around. Learn to share. Not everything is about you. Surprise! You don't have to start practicing somebody else's traditions in order to be decent. That's your problem now, as a matter of fact. Always rejecting information. You folks are some of the only people who stay ignorant on purpose. Why??

    Islam is too confusing. God says love one another as you love yourself. It doesn't matter whether you are pregnant, a child before or after puberty even you are elderly. You accept Jesus into your heart and you believe that he was put to death rose from the grave conquered death hell and the grave rising from the dead believe he is the son of man and the son of God. God also says pray without ceasing that could mean 5 times a day that could mean 10 times a day. You always pray. Leave the ritual to the professional naysayers Just trust God with your whole heart love others as you love yourselves honor your mother and father all the days of your life even if your mom and dad were raging lunatics honor them everyday even if they are dead. Your life will be long lasting. Love God Hate Sin
