why is ramzan celebrated. what is the story behind ramzan?

Answer :Ramzan is a sacred festival for the Muslim community. It is usually celebrated for the entire month of Ramzan. People usually fast for the entire day and then take meal at the evening only once in a day. There are certain objectives behind its celebration. The most important objective is that it is a means of learning self-control. Due to the lack of preoccupation with the satisfaction of bodily appetites during the daylight hours of fasting, a measure of ascendancy is given to one\'s spiritual nature, which becomes a means of coming closer to Allah. Ramadan is also a time of concentrated worship, reading of the Quran, purifying one\'s behavior, giving charity and doing virtuous deeds. The secondary objective of fasting is a way of experiencing hunger and developing compassion for the less fortunate, and learn to be thankful and appreciative for all of God\'s bounties. Fasting is also advantageous to the health and provides a break in the cycle of rigid habits.

Answer :In order to remember the basic belief that it is God and not just the materialistic things of the world that supports life and the founding of the Koran, a Muslim will observe a fasting, chastity [no sex] and prayerful reflection of God and life during the month of Ramadan and ending it in a celebration, Eid, symbolize the period of happiness when Muslims all over the world commemorate the festivities with the praise of Allah and public prayers after which they go home to feast with family and friends. When the sun sets, a follower is allowed to eat in moderation. So serious is this observation of fasting that it is written that one may never break the fast without permission of Allah. If one were to miss a day of the fast, it can never be made up for all eternity. The faster is allowed to eat and drink and have sexual intercourse from sundown until the break of dawn. When dawn breaks and there is food in the mouth, it should be spit out and one should cease from ejaculation. The obligation of fasting is mandatory on a person who has fulfilled these requirements: He or she must be a Muslim, sane, must have reached puberty, must be healthy, and not in a state of travel; and for women, they must be in a state of purity (clean from menstruation and post childbirth bleeding). If a person fulfills the above prerequisites, fasting becomes valid and mandatory.
