On this episode of the Raw Islam Podcast with Imam Azhar the guys sit down to talk about the real Ramadan and what it means to Muslims and Non-Muslims.
The Imam talks about Lent, Lent is a season which is observed by Catholics around the world where they typically give up a type of food or a habit for 40 days and it culminates on Ash Wednesday. This every much parallels the concept of Ramadan.
To lots of Non-Muslims, and to some Muslims, Ramadan means 29 to 30 days of fasting. That fasting means no food or water from sunrise to sunset. It is also filled with complaints about the not having water for long periods of time in the hot summer months, which also makes the fasting longer.
In the winter months, in the northern hemisphere, the sunset is around 7 or 8 o’clock. But, in the summer it can set around 9pm or later. This means Muslims can be fasting for up to 16 hours or more.
But is this what Ramadan is really about? Is this what we should honestly be focusing on before we enter the month of Ramadan?
