Ramadan Kareem 2020 is a 9th month on the Muslims calendar, which is known as Fasting month also, which is the known to be one of the important parts of 5 pillars of Islam. To all Muslims, may this Ramadan bring lots of happiness, prosperity, and togetherness for you and your family. Furthermore, fasting also teaches tolerance and patience in yourself. And not just this but fasting also teaches to stay away from any of the sinful emotions including anger.
Due to the virus outbreak - which has infected nearly 2,700,000 persons so far across the globe and claimed over 188,000 lives - several countries are under a state of lockdown. The Islamic nations are no exception, with almost all Muslim-majority nations announcing a closure on mosques, shrines and other holy places.
Saudi Arabia, where the two holiest sites of Islam - Kaaba in Makkah and Masjid-e-Nabvi (Prophet's Mosque) in Madinah - is also under a heightened state of shutdown due to the threat posed by coronavirus. With over 11,000 confirmed cases in the nation, the authorities have decided neither to open the two holy sites for Ramadan nor allow congregational prayers to take place in other mosques.
Many of the Non-Muslims consider this month as one of the toughest because Muslims have to stay hungry and thirsty throughout the day and to follow Ramadan Calendar while keeping their daily routine as usual. Well, that is not the truth because Muslims all around the world celebrate this Ramadan Kareem with the same joy as they celebrate Eid ul Fitr or any other occasion for the rest of the year. And fasting is as joyous as having a party every day for one whole month. This Ramadan Kareem is not just some ordinary time period of the year, but it comes with several blessings and lessons as well. As you follow Ramadan and keeps fasting throughout the day, then you realize the pain of those poor people who cannot afford to buy food and have to stay hungry for several days.
