The Origin Of Fasting
The origin of fasting
According to the history of Islam, the time when the founder of Islam, Muhammad, moved from Mecca to Medina in 622 AD was called the first year of the Eid, and in August of the following year, the beginning of Ramadan. Ramadan this year is the Ramadan of 1424 in the Islamic calendar. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink during the day, and all meals are in the evening. The provision of Ramadan is mainly to ask Muslims to have awe of God. As the Islamic month of Ramadan, it cannot be fixed in the Gregorian calendar. Because the Islamic calendar is about 355 days per year, it is the same as the ordinary Lunar New Year in China, but there is no stipulation of the month, which is about 10 days from the calendar year. Therefore, Ramadan is sometimes in the spring, sometimes in the summer, sometimes in the fall, and sometimes in the winter. A Muslim can experience the feeling of fasting in any season of the year in his 36-year career.
