As one of the five pillars of Islam, Ramadan has an important role for Muslims. What is almost known in Germany almost as a fast month is also a term for the ninth month, which can be found in the Islamic calendar. Exciting information and tips about the Ramadan 2017 can be found here.

The fasting month in 2017 - When is Ramadan?

Depending on the year, the fasting month of Ramadan takes 29 or 30 days. In 2017 he begins on 27 May and ends on 24 June. The duration of the fasting month depends on the state of the moon. With regard to the Islamic calendar, this calculation can be explained as follows:
A new month begins in the Islamic calendar the moment the new moon is first seen. The end of the month is ushered in when the diminishing moon is no longer visible. Thus, there is no fixed date at which the fast month begins every year. In addition, there are still temporal differences, which can be dependent on the religion as well as the interpretation of the cream data. In some regions, therefore, the festival starts a day earlier or even a day later.After the end of Ramadan, in the month Sawwal, the Ramadanfest is celebrated. In 2017 the first day of the Ramadanfest will take place on 25.06.2017. The next two days are the feast days two and three. Fasting is strictly forbidden during the festival.
Important basic conditions for Ramadan
For Muslims, the Laylat al-Qadr is the most important night of the fast month. Translated, Laylat al-Qadr means as much as the "night of determination". This is the night in which Mohammed once received his first revelation. Again, however, it is difficult to find a fixed date within the month. So there are different interpretations when the Laylat al-Quadr is celebrated. However, it always takes place on the 21st or 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th day of the fasting month.
The end of Ramadan is ushered in at Eid al-Fitr This is the night when the new moon reappears. Note: Some Muslims must see the new moon to complete Ramadan. If the moon does not show itself, for example, through a covered sky, it will continue to be fasted until the 30th day.

Fasting - an important part in Ramadan

An important part of Ramadan is fasting. During the month, faithful Muslims are fasting from dawn to sunset. Depending on the Islamic calendar, a fasting day can therefore last from 8 hours to 19 hours. Especially in the summer months, where the sun rises very late and very early, there are long fast days in Islam.Before the sun rises, Muslims take the so-called Suhoor / Sahur. When the sun has gone, Iftar is taken. These are the names for the meals. What kind of meals it is depends on the region in which they are served.The Suhoor / Sahur is often served with a risotto, but also fruits and other light meals can be prepared. It is strictly the case with the Iftar. At this meal there are dates. This is followed by a main meal, which can be quite extensive as well as the following dessert. It is a custom not to eat alone, but to get together with friends and family.In Ramazan, fasting is a time of worship and devotion. From dawn to sunset, food and drink, marital sexual intercourse as well as 

The turning away from secular values

Adoration and devotion are not the only reasons for fasting in Ramadan. Secular views and possessions can also adversely affect human behavior. That is why at the feast, also known as Bayram or Eid, is deliberately turned away from these secular influences. It is important to remember and to believe in the faith and to celebrate it. The soul and body are cleansed and freed during fasting. Another key role is the self-control that is to be tested and improved in the time of Ramadan.

Does everyone really need to fast?

In Germany the idea of ​​fasting is hard for many people. Often the question is asked how children should be able to endure fasting. What is usually not known is that not every Muslim must fast. There are some exceptions that can attack. The most important limitation is the age. It is only with the onset of puberty that young people are forced to fast. Muslims who have reached a high age and are possibly afflicted with illness do not need to fast. In general, diseases are a reason to expose the fasting. If a woman is pregnant or still breastfeeding her child, she is freed from fasting.
The liberation from the fasting period during illness, travel or pregnancy applies only for the moment. If a Muslim believer is able to fast again, he is encouraged to catch the fast-day.
