 Questions and answers: Reflections on Ramadan 

The Wisconsin Muslim Journal coursed inquiries regarding Ramadan to occupants around Southeast Wisconsin. Through sent referrals, answers touched base from as far away as Florida. This article is an assemblage of those Questions and Answers, showing knowledge into the different individual importance of and encounters with the Holy Month. 
Wisconsin Muslim Journal: Do you feel perceiving the significance of Muslim occasions outside of Islamic people group is essential? Assuming this is the case, why? 
Dr. Magda Abdelfattah: "Right off the bat, it should be comprehended that Islam is a religion. While there are social customs that some connect with Ramadan that fluctuate starting with one nation then onto the next and even starting with one family then onto the next, the general importance and stories regularly connected with our heavenly month of Ramadan are situated in our confidence, not our way of life. The stories are those of Prophet Muhammed, peace arrive, and his mates. There are such a large number of stories from which a man can learn so much, especially lessons in ethical quality and helping one keep up their Iman, or confidence. I for one appreciate these stories, however I distinguish them with my conviction framework, and would not reference this as a "social" wonder. It is inside the domain of Islam. This demonstrates despite the fact that Islam exists in about every one of the nations on the planet, culture isn't the bringing together factor. It is the religion we attribute to with our confidence in Allah SWT (Sabahan Wa Taala)." 
Inam Al-Abed: "For me, it is critical to comprehend the social history and the importance past the occasions to completely acknowledge and take an interest in them. I additionally jump at the chance to know the history behind the occasions so I can teach others and even my own kids, when I am gotten some information about them. I feel like when I talk on the meanings of Ramadan and Eid, it is a chance to get more attention to Islam a positive way." 
Dr. Sharif R. AbdelFattah: "The reason we observe Ramadan is on account of it is the period of the disclosure of the Quran, which are the rules for how we hone our confidence. The story is advised with a reason to remind us why we hone in the ways we do. It is basically an indication of why we are submitting to the will of God, and I can't help suspecting that individuals from other confidence groups don't comprehend this. It is tied in with demonstrating our accommodation to an option that is higher than ourselves by experiencing challenges, and that is less demanding to do together as a community." 
Bocar Ndiaye: "I really surmise that the significance of Muslim occasions ought to be perceived and broadly instructed to individuals outside of the Muslim community. There is no better method for knowing a community than through its practices. Individuals put a considerable measure of qualities in their functions, be they social, political, religion or essentially social. Muslims are especially known to give an incredible incentive to all their Religious Holidays. Needing to know the Muslim community without learning of what they beyond a reasonable doubt esteem, for example, Religious Holidays, is fairly missing an essential part of what Muslims especially appreciate. To better enable different groups to get a feeling of muslims' identity, it is indispensable to get the word out about Muslim Holidays. It is essential that we set aside the opportunity to teach individuals by welcoming them to be a piece of these occasions and give them the chance to value the excellence, and the social and profound parts of various Muslim get-togethers." 
Elham Samara: "By and by, I think Muslim occasions ought to be perceived in both the school setting and the common community setting. There are a few purposes behind this. One is mindfulness. Youngsters and grown-ups ought to have a familiarity with different religions and their practices. Besides, understanding. In the event that there is a familiarity with the practices at that point there can be understanding and Muslim youngsters won't want to account for themselves routinely. Muslim youngsters know about Christmas and the works on encompassing that occasion, for instance." 
Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Shah: "Muslim occasions involve certain demonstrations of love and customs. Instruction, mindfulness, training, and updates are required with the goal that individuals can satisfy their obligations in the most ideal way."Fazilat of Subhanallah Alhamdulillah La Ilaha Illallah Allahu Akbar
