How to entertain guests at an iftar party in Ramadan? 10 POINTS FOR BEST ANSWER?
We used to have those, they're good fun :)
Well, we would have recitation of Dua's at the beginning, then Salah, ifthaar and afterwards talk about Ramadan and discuss the lectures we had been listening to during Ramadan in the mosque.
We didn't have a lecturer, rather we made our own discussions and based it on our opinions.
Then after that, we just had fun and messed around by playing some funny games :P ... lol.
You never know if you'll see the next ramadan, so its best to make the most of it by reading Quran and other good things which have been graded up just for this month. You can record all the serials and can watch it afterwards. Make the most of this gifted month.
How do you explain Ramadan to non-Muslim coworkers?
Wa Alaykum Salam, Ramadan Mubarak to you too :)
You tell them that it is the 9th month of the lunar calendar, a month when muslims fast (avoid food drink sex) from dawn to sunset as a form of worship, in order to learn patience and self control and to come to appreciate God's blessings even more and to experience a fraction of what those in need go through which consequently encourages us to give more in charity
Ramadan Mubarak first of all =) ok my question is?
Engagement is a sacred relationship connecting two individuals mutually so they can get to know each other inside out. An engagement can last for years but in Islam any relationship outside a marriage is considered as adultery meaning holding hands, kissing, and hugging is unlawful.
2:235 And there is no blame on you respecting that which you speak indirectly in the asking of (such) women in marriage or keep (the proposal) concealed within your minds; Allah knows that you win mention them, but do not give them a promise in secret unless you speak in a lawful manner, and do not confirm the marriage tie until the writing is fulfilled, and know that Allah knows what is in your minds, therefore beware of Him, and know that Allah is Forgiving, Forbearing.
It is expected from both individuals to not meet secretly with each other unless their intention is pure and both their parents/guardians have given them permission. I believe an engagement is merrily a time period where both individuals and their parents/guardians get to be on familiar terms with each other. An engagement does not allow sexual relationships, including kissing, hugging, etc but a marriage is open to such actions.

Ramadan: What are the dangers of free-mixing between the sexes?
Not is haraam. I don't go outside except for neccesity such as getting groceries with hubby or when we are moving (which we'll be doing in 8 months). I'm doing college online and will continue doing college online so I don't have to worry about fitnah. I know from experience that when you are friends with the opposite sex one of you is eventually going to want something more. I didn't know it was haraam to talk to men as a woman, being a revert but my husband put a stop to that shortly after our marriage and I deleted my old e-mail so none of my old male Muslim friends would talk to me. I was upset that I had to do so because I don't get along with girls. I get along with boys. I'm not into anything that girls like such as jewelry or makeup, or shopping for shoes or clothes.
How can I recite the Quran if I can't read Arabic during Ramadan?
I love this website. It's helping me learn to recite surah Yasin. It has a step by step way of learning surahs (includes audio). It also includes duas and the 99 names of Allah (Swt). Hope this helps (:
Both are commonly used and correct. Ramadan Mubarak literally translates to: Blessed Ramadan (May your Ramadan be blessed) while Ramadan Karim literally translates to: Generous Ramadan. Ramadan Mubarak is what I tend to use more because of it's meaning compared to that of Ramadan Karim. A person responds by saying either Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Karim to the other.
Hope this helped. Let me know if you have other questions!

what can i do to make my younger sibiling excited about the arrival of Ramadan?
why not get him to google,'' slave girls owned by mohammad'' and read about the exact words of allah and his prophet? i know you are a muslim and muslims are commanded to never look anything up and always make up lies. so maybe he has google rapes done by mohammad or murders done by mohammad and knows about islam. so would you be so kind to tell us why you refuse to google rapes done by mohammad or murders done by mohammad and learn the truth about your so called prophet? please! look these up and post exactly what you learned from your god,allah and his prophet.
Do you hear people say Ramadan Kareem more often or Ramadan Mubarak? ?
Ramadan Mubarak more often....
By the way, allow me, dear brothers and sisters to sieze this opportunity to wish you all a happy and fruitful ramadan! May Allah shower His blessings and forgiveness on all of us. May Allah guide us in our everyday life. May Allah enlighten us when we answer questions regarding Himself, His Quran, and His prophets.....
Ramadan Mubarak :: Please would you all wish me luck and make dua for me for tomorrow......?
wa alaykum assalam
may Allah ease ur way and enable u to fullfil ur fast and may HE(swt) make it easy to u and all muslims,and ameen for ur duaa and thx for ur wish ramadan mubarak to u too
as for what to do,u can always use the extra time to perform religious duty so u can earn rewards,
►as reading/listening qu'ran "and ponder the meanings of what you read and listen to, as much as you can."
►remember Allaah a great deal (dhikr) with the dhikrs narrated in the saheeh ahaadeeth, such as “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah (there is no god except Allaah)”, “Subhaan-Allaah wa’l-hamdu Lillaah wa laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wa Allaahu akbar (Glory be to Allaah, praise be to Allaah, there is no god except Allaah and Allaah is Most Great)”, and so on.
►avoid committing sins
►perform prayers on time
►Do a lot of voluntary good actions,also u can use ur time to study the stories of the Prophets
Ramadan is the name of action,sacrifice and piety and not debates of fiqh.
As long as a person wishes to emphasize these highlights of Ramadan,
it is alright. Kindly dont try to make life difficult for people, for Allah has
made it easy.

Take Care, have a wonderful Ramadan!
Walaikum Salam brother. Ramadan Mubarak to you as well! :)
I would say its allowed to put your head under water, just make sure not to accidentally drink any water. :)
Hope the fasting is going well inshallah. God bless.
LOL Oh sorry, all this time I assumed you were a brother xD My Ramadan is so far so good, thanks :) Alhamdulillah that yours is going just as well, may it continue to be so inshallah. :) God bless.
Are you asking about praying tarawih? Usually you pray Isha, then two rakats sunnah for that, then eight rakats for tarawih (you do them two at a time, say "asalamu aleykum wa rahmatullah" and then get up and to the next two) then two rakats shafa, and one witr. You can pray with any surahs you know.
(During the last ten days of Ramadan you can pray additional tahajud (late night) prayers. These are wonderful.)
Read more at the link below, and when you pray, please include the world, and me, in your prayers.
The new moon has been sighted for Ramadan...Ramadan Mubarak?
Yes, Ramadan Mubarak. I found out to recently like 3 hours ago or so. InshAllah, this Ramadan Allah swt will unite, bless, and bring happiness to our lives. Ameen. and forgive our sins, InshAllah. Ameen.
The Muslim starts his day with suhoor before Fajr prayer. It is better to delay suhoor until the latest possible time of the night.
Then after that the Muslim gets ready for Fajr prayer before the adhaan. So he does wudoo' at home and goes out to the mosque before the adhaan.
When he enters the mosque, he prays two rak'ahs (tahiyyat al-masjid - greeting the mosque). Then he sits and keeps busy making du'aa', or reading Qur'an, or reciting dhikr, until the muezzin gives the call to prayer. He repeats what the muezzin says, and says the du'aa' narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to be said after the adhaan ends. Then after that he prays two rak'ahs (the regular Sunnah of Fajr), then he occupies himself with du'aa' and reading Qur'an until the iqaamah for prayer is given. He is in a state of prayer so long as he is waiting for the prayer.
After offering the prayer in congregation, he recites the dhikrs that are prescribed following the salaam at the end of the prayer. After that if he wants to sit in the mosque until the sun has risen, reciting dhikr and reading Qur'an, that is preferable, and that is what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to do after Fajr prayer.
Then about one-quarter of an hour after the sun has risen, if he wants he can pray Duha prayer (a minimum of two rak'ahs), and that is good. Or if he wants he can delay it until the preferred time, which is when the day has grown hotter and the sun is higher in the sky that is better.
Then if he wants he may sleep to prepare himself for going to work, and he can intend by sleeping to strengthen himself for worship and earning a living, so that he will be rewarded for it in sha Allah. He should also follow the etiquette of sleep that is prescribed in sharee'ah, both actions and words.
Then he goes to work, and when the time for Zuhr prayer comes, he goes to the mosque early, before the adhaan or immediately after it, and he should get ready to pray beforehand. So he prays four rak'ahs with two tasleems (the regular Sunnah before Zuhr), then he keeps busy reading Qur'an until the iqaamah for prayer is given, and he prays with the congregation, then he prays two rak'ahs (the regular Sunnah after Zuhr).
Then after the prayer he goes and finishes whatever of his work is left, until it is time to leave work. If there is a long time to go after finishing his work until the time for 'Asr prayer, then he can rest. But if there is not enough time and he fears that if he sleeps he will miss 'Asr prayer, then he should keep busy doing something suitable until the time for 'Asr comes, such as going to the market to buy some things that his family needs and the like, or going straight to the mosque when he has finished his work, and staying in the mosque until he has prayed 'Asr.
Then after 'As, it depends on his circumstances. If he can stay in the mosque and keep busy reading Qur'an, this is a great opportunity. But if he feels tired, then he should rest at this time so that he will be ready to pray taraaweeh at night.
Before the adhaan for Maghrib, he should get ready to break his fast, and he should do something at this time that will benefit him, whether reading Qur'an, making du'aa', or having a useful conversation with his wife and children.

What do the words Ramadan Kareem and Ramadan Mubarak mean?
Ramadan Mubarak means Congratulations it's Ramadan...(basically) we say congrats because we are excited for this time and all the blessings it brings. Ramadan Kareem means Generous Ramadan because it is a generous time, we get many blessings and we see all the things we are to be thankful for. We also give charity during Ramadan (and should all year long).
Basically the phrases are like saying Happy Ramadan.
Ramadan Mubarak ! :: What to do for my first fast....?
When you wake up for fajr , usually my mother is awake reading the Quran. I sit w/ her read with her or she reads to me. than after 1 hr or so , we go back to the first juzz and and mashallah she perfects the juzz i passed.
By this time its around 10:30 am . So we start preparing the food ,like the whole family. peeling 1000000000 [ jk ] potatoes and onions for the sambosa and other food. I think ramadan is a best time to get closer to your family. help them , give your parents a kiss. Make them proud, and Inshallah they will realize they raised a good child.

How would you wish 'Ramadan Mubarak' in Korean and a 'Happy Eid' in Korean script?
Ramadan is 라마단 [ra-ma-dan; rah-mah-dan].
Eid would be 이드 [i-deu; ee-duh].
"Have a happy X" / "I wish you a good X" / "X mubarak" is normally
즐겨운 라마단이 되길 바래. (informal)
[jeul-gyeo-un ra-ma-da-ni dwoe-gil ba-rae]
Hope you have a good Ramadan.
즐겨운 이드가 되길 바래. (informal)
[jeul-gyeo-un i-deu-ga dwoe-gil ba-rae]
Hope you have a good Eid.
To make it more formal, change 바래 for 빕니다 [bim-ni-da], I wish you a... (formal).
