Ramadan 2013


Jeddah Blog wishes its readers Ramadan Kareem. May this Ramadan bring you peace and prosperity, good health and wealth, and brighten your life forever.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.” [Bukhari]

This is a great opportunity to do good deeds and Muslims strive to better themselves in this holy month. Charity is increased, extra prayers at night are performed in the mosque and visits to Makkah and Madina are undertaken.

Let us know what YOU will be doing this Ramadan. What extra deeds do you aim to do? Do you exchange foods with your neighbours? or help the needy?

Meanwhile, here’s a fun Ramadan quiz created by our Quizmaster to test your basic knowledge of this month. Why not do this quiz with your children. It’s a great opportunity to teach them about the essentials of Ramadan.
