On the swahili coast of Kenya, ramadan is always a party, as well as a month of prayers and "spiritual cleansing."
Africa has also made this sacred recital a socialization period with sunset dinners in the common houses, with banquets of local gastronomic specialties often prepared by mothers and grandparents in Arab neighborhoods such as Barani and Shella.
This year Ramadan will kick off tomorrow night, Friday 26 May and Saturday 27, depending on when the moon will start and will be fully visible in Mecca.
Ramadan corresponds to the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the rate of this period varies from year to year. This month, corresponding to the period when the Quran was revealed as a guide for men and clear proof of righteousness and salvation, Muslims are obliged to fast, abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, having sexual intercourse during the day and limiting themselves to Consume a small evening meal called iftar after a prayer that interrupts fast until the next morning. They are abstaining from watching Ramadan children, sick people, traveling people, pregnant women, nursing women, or those who have a menstrual cycle.
During Ramadan, it is common practice for the faithful to go to pray in the mosque. In addition to the usual five daily prayers, at this time, a special prayer called Taraweeh (night prayer) is added. On the evening of the 27th of the month, which coincides with the belief that Muhammad received precisely the revelation of the Holy Qur'an on that day, Muslims celebrate Laylat-al-Qadr (the night of power).
The end of the Ramadan is celebrated on the first day of the month of Shawwal, with a three-day holiday (Id-al-Fitr) that sees reunion of friends and relatives, gift exchanges and family lunches.
