Spirit of piety marks Ramzan

There seems to be no bound to the joy of children and youths, who are eager to flaunt their new clothes and relish the savouries prepared on the day of the festival.

Ramzan, which will be celebrated on Wednesday, will mark the culmination of the month- long fast.

The festive spirit is evident in households, mosques and streets of the City.
Keeping up with the precedent, even this year prayers will be offered at the Idgah maidan.

One month prior to the celebration of Ramzan, both the older and the younger lot observe Roza (fast).

During the holy month of Ramzan, muslims abstain from smoking and drinking and pray for a life of peace and harmony transcending jealousy and hatred.It is believed that breaking the rules during Ramzan would incur the wrath of Allah.

“Ramzan is a holy month for us. We recite the Holy Quran throughout the month and pray for everybody’s peace, harmony and bliss. Help is offered to the poor and needy in the form of alms. Though our acts we try to see Allah,” said Sheikh Hussain.

“The writing of Holy Quran began in the month of Ramzan. The  work was completed on the 26th night of the month, which is referred to as  ‘Shakti Ratri.’ We strongly believe that the gates to heaven is opened during the month of Ramzan. In this month, every day ‘Taraavi
Namaz’ is offered from 8 pm to 10:30 pm,” he added.

As this year too both Ramzan and Ganesha festival falls on the same day, efforts are underway to ensure that no untoward incident occurs on the day and festivals are celebrated with fervour and peace, said Sheikh Hussain.
