The Fast of Ramadan

Ramadan 2009: Saturday, August 22nd

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. The Month of Ramadan is also when it is believed the Holy Quran "was sent down from heaven, a guidance unto men, a declaration of direction, and a means of Salvation".

It is during this month that Muslims fast. It is called the Fast of Ramadan and lasts the entire month. Ramadan is a time when Muslims concentrate on their faith and spend less time on the concerns of their everyday lives. It is a time of worship and contemplation.

During the Fast of Ramadan strict restraints are placed on the daily lives of Muslims. They are not allowed to eat or drink during the daylight hours. Smoking and sexual relations are also forbidden during fasting. At the end of the day the fast is broken with prayer and a meal called the iftar. In the evening following the iftar it is customary for Muslims to go out visiting family and friends. The fast is resumed the next morning.

According to the Holy Quran:

One may eat and drink at any time during the night "until you can plainly distinguish a white thread from a black thread by the daylight: then keep the fast until night"

The good that is acquired through the fast can be destroyed by five things -

the telling of a lie
denouncing someone behind his back
a false oath
greed or covetousness

These are considered offensive at all times, but are most offensive during the Fast of Ramadan.

During Ramadan, it is common for Muslims to go to the Masjid (Mosque) and spend several hours praying and studying the Quran. In addition to the five daily prayers, during Ramadan Muslims recite a special prayer called the Taraweeh prayer (Night Prayer). The length of this prayer is usually 2-3 times as long as the daily prayers. Some Muslims spend the entire night in prayer.

On the evening of the 27th day of the month, Muslims celebrate the Laylat-al-Qadr (the Night of Power). It is believed that on this night Muhammad first received the revelation of the Holy Quran. And according to the Quran, this is when God determines the course of the world for the following year.

When the fast ends (the first day of the month of Shawwal) it is celebrated for three days in a holiday called Id-al-Fitr (the Feast of Fast Breaking). Gifts are exchanged. Friends and family gather to pray in congregation and for large meals.

Subject: Fasting

"Q2(183:185)O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil); (183) (Fast) a certain number of days; and (for) him who is sick among you, or on a journey, (the same) number of other days; and for those who can afford it there is a ransom: the feeding of a man in need - but whoso doeth good of his own accord, it is better for him: and that ye fast is better for you if

Kutesa meets UN chief

By Henry Mukasa

Foreign affairs minister Sam Kutesa met UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in New York on Monday.

Kutesa presided over the Security Council’s debate on post-conflict peace building yesterday.

The Ugandan mission said in a statement that the Secretary-General commended Uganda for playing a positive role on the council, in the Burundi peace process and the stabilisation of Somalia.

Uganda has sent peace-keepers to Somalia where Islamists are putting pressure on the government.

Uganda took the chairmanship of the Security Council in January, with former internal affairs minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda as permanent representative. Rugunda chaired council meetings throughout this month.

Kutesa, according to the statement, appreciated the support which the UN has provided to promote peace and security in the Great Lakes region.

Rugunda and his deputy, Ambassador Patrick Mugoya attended Kutesa’s meeting with the UN chief.

Ki-Moon, in a report, outlined measures to prevent genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

“It is high time to turn the promise of the responsibility to protect into practice,” he asserted.

Agreed to by world leaders in 2005, the responsibility to protect, or R2P, holds states responsible for shielding their own populations from genocide and human rights abuses and requires the international community to step in if this is not met.

“This universal and irrevocable commitment was made at the highest level. Our common task now is to deliver on this historic pledge to the peoples of the world,” Ki-Moon told the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

The report was debated by the 192-member assembly yesterday. It rests on three pillars: state responsibility; international assistance and capacity-building; and timely and decisive response in times of crises.

The secretary general explained that victims of such crimes should not be forgotten.

“Those losses have permanently stained the history of the 20th century. Together, in this century, we can chart a different course,” he stated.

He warned against complacency and cynicism, which he said often prevented the UN from acting as effectively as it should.

“Our public judged us then, and found us wanting. They will be watching again this week, and they will – rightfully – judge us harshly if we treat these deliberations as politics as usual,” Ban Ki-Moon told the assembly.
