Sehri time is the most peaceful time when everyone wakes up early to have their breakfast to keep their fast till Maghrib.Even the ones who are used to wake up late in normal days become early riser in ramdan.Bread, butter ,yogurt, tea and milkshake are mostly used in sehri.

Recitation of holy Quran

When we keep fast it develops in us a general sympathy for others,so we want to help others for which Islam has settled a specific amount on every being which is called Zakat. Fitrana is payed to poor and needy people at the eid festival to help them.

Shab e qadr

 

It the most precious night which occurs in the last 10 days of Ramdan.It is the night of blessings and for seeking forgiveness from our Almighty Allah.


Crescent of eid ul Fitr

At the end of of Ramzan, on 1st of Shawal Eid ul Fitar is celebrated all over the world in Muslim countries.Everyone is excited to see the crescent,Since my childhood I remembered that we used to see the crescent of Eid from the roofs of our houses.
