Ramadan is an essential
and mandatory practice carried by all Muslims men and women around the world.
Its start from 10 years of age. In chapter 2 verses 183 holy Quran says, “O you who believe,
fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those who were before
you, in order that you may learn taqwa (piety)”. Taqwa means the person who is
not making any kind of sins, evil deeds and do patience.
During fast Muslims
can’t drink, eat, or make any sexual intercourse between Dawns to dusk timing.
The length of fasting depends on season, minimum duration from 8 hours to
maximum 20 hours depending on country-to-country and place to place. On the
other side Islam give relaxation to Muslim, you don’t have a need of fast until
you are not perfectly well, ill, too old, menstruating women, pregnant women,
women who just delivered a baby, lactating women and the person who is going to
be travel so far place. They have a need to again remake up fast on any other
days, but due to cultural norm and especially most important Allah Subhana
Talah open the doors of mercy, forgiveness and blessing upon Muslims, they are
trying to never skip fast . The prophet (Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
said “every obligatory act in Ramadan count seventy times in other times. (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah).
Ramadan is a month to teach lesson of humanity, sacrifice, forgiveness and
exhibiting good manners, so Ramadan decleared as a best charitable (Zakat)
month for Muslims. (Tirmidhi).
With all this outcomes
many Muslims have a psychological phenomenon about maximum utilization of rewards
from Allah Suban Talah during this holy
month of Ramadan, because they don’t know person live in coming year and shower
the welcoming blessings of holy month of Ramadan or not.
Seasonality is a
potential confounding factor because Ramadan follow a lunar calendar, based on
appearance and disappearance of the moon has 354 days, moves forward roughly by
11 days each year according to Gregorian (Western) calendar. After 32 years Ramadan,
