Ramadan is the ninth month of Islamic calendar and the fixed Monday, the Islamic calendar year is approximately 1425 AD. What Ramadan special all month that the fasting in this month one of the pillars of Islam. The fasting is intended to both body and spirit to clean. In many Islamic countries, but also in the Netherlands, it is customary in this period the family and friendship ties extra spending. Fasting has many purposes, as fasting strengthens faith. All Muslims in the world this Monday It is intended that a strong band called giving people more love and mercy know.

For most Muslims in the Netherlands and the rest of the world begins fasting month Ramadan on October 27, 2003. From sunrise to sunset, they should not eat, drink, smoking, sex, gossip and do not have impure thoughts. In the evening hours during the night and eat them. But not everyone is obliged to fast. Children, pregnant women, breastfeeding women, the sick and travelers are exempt from Ramadan. And girls and women during their menstruation is not fasting, because you must be pure.

If you knowingly breaks the Ramadan you fine as the day broke overtaking and sixty days as punishment overtake. So a total of 61 days. This should happen before the next Ramadan, except where not possible due to illness or a continuing journey.

The prayer is very important during Ramadan. You aware of yourself, faith and the people around you.

The interview with Rahiela Lalmohamed
Rahiela Lalmahomed from Ypenburg (Regio Den Haag) is a 18 year old student in Amsterdam HBO. Rahiela studying Financial Services Management. Rahiela her parents are not strict. It will thus be released in what she does and is totally limited by its parents.

Rahiela's vision of Ramadan:

Ramadan is never on the same date? Why is that?
Our year consists of fewer days. Moreover, our calendar month based on Monday teeth instead of teeth sun, a lunar cycle is shorter.

It seems so that the Islamic calendar also different. Your life around the year 1425. Can you explain how it came?
See previous answer, because our year is shorter, Ramadan is always a little ahead, because in principle remains the 9th Monday And because we started with the later era than the Christians, we are so behind, but eventually we catch up with the Christian era, as our years shorter.

Do you also participate in Ramadan?
Yes, I am also participating in the Ramadan, unless my body is not permitted.

How important is Ramadan for you?
Ramadan is a bit of back to basic, and thought to your culture and country of origin, the world around you. In hectic times would you have ever forgotten.

How you experience this month, how is it with you to it?
I find this a very pleasant month, because you regularly in the mosque, and so many know it. But it is also a heavy month, since you have little to eat and drink.

People think in general that, at the Ramadan involved, in order to live in people who are poor. You know how it is to need to for a month, but then you go back through your life of luxury. Is not that a bit hypocritical? What is your view on this?
I think it is understandable that people feel like that. And indeed there is something hypocritical, but that lies in the nature of people, if you during Ramadan to poor people may think you should do in the months after. But because they are not hungry, they think there much less. Another pillar of Islam is Zakat, which is the alms for the poor. The Zakat you always think, because that way you are after Ramadan still doing. That people do not meet the Zakat is their own business, but I think that if you can do to Ramadan, the Zakat is a snap.

In Suriname, the day of Id-ul-Fitr a national holiday, what do you feel?
Actually I find that pretty fun, the more souls the more joy. I think in different Suriname believe much more hand in hand. Everyone is celebrating festivals together, just to be together and be good for each other, sharing short. And it does not distinguish who can and who can not join a party.

In the past, the once discredited, or football players were given Friday or a few matches because they could skip the Ramadan did. What is your opinion on this, in that they take football for a living do?
Those players could not freely given. The fact that you adopt should not affect your daily activities. Otherwise, any person who should sit back down because they are otherwise too much effort.

Indian Feelings Foundation wishes you a Blessed Ramadan again.

Assalam Alaykum WRWB!
