Ramadan is the a sacred fasting month for our Muslim friends. Fasting is encouraged during Ramadan because it is said to purify the body and allow Muslims to focus on their faith and remove earthly distractions; a time of intense devotion to Allah. Muslims pray 5 times throughout the day, as such they could emerge from Ramadan with positive change in lives.

During Ramadan Muslims refrain from sex and other vices during this sacred month. All age groups are expected to participate in Ramadan. But young children, sick and pregnant women are not recommended to take part in fasting and other traditions that may be detrimental to their health.

Ramadan has been one of the most celebrated Ramadan observances of all time. This is also because of the world’s Muslim population continues to grow each year. Ramadan lasts 29 or 30 days; and this year, Ramadan will last for 30 days. The dates of Ramadan vary each year because Ramadan is tied to the Islamic calendar.

Ramadan officially begins when the moon is first spotted. As a result, the timing of the beginning of Ramadan will vary throughout the world as the moon is observed first in the east and later in the west. Ramadan of year 2012 had begun on the 21 July, when the moon is first spotted on that day.

I took the opportunity walk the bazaar barely before their ‘Buka Puasa’ or Sungkai, meaning breaking the fast. I went to the bazzar at Asia City Kota Kinabalu that close to Cititel Express Hotel. Four of my friends and I were having so much fun buying and tasting the food that were selling in at the bazaar. The bazaar was flocked with people. Check out my videos and feel the Ramadan with our Muslim friends, for we are 1 Malaysia!
