We are one with our Islamic brothers and sisters who will be observing the Ramadan starting on the last week of June 2014. We understand that this is a solemn observation where everyone will be fasting and praying.
What is Ramadam?
For everyone who are not familiar with Ramadam or Ramadan, here are key points:
- it’s a month long observation for Moslem members which occurs during the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar which begins when the crescent new moon appears
- fasting and praying is observed but only during daylight; Suhoor or the meal before dawn is allowed and then followed by Iftar or the meal after sunset where family members and their relatives gather to feast most especially during the culmination of the season after a month called Eid-al-Fitr
- not everyone needs to participate; exemptions include children and older people as well as those who are travelling, with illness, and women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, and with menstruation
- it’s not limited to fasting and praying; abstinence from sex as well as any type of wrongdoing are also expected, disputes settled, family ties strengthened, charity observed, and Islamic teaching re-evaluated
- prayers and recitation of Quran is observed by leaders at mosques
Going back to one of the rituals of Ramadan which is fasting, here are water bottles you can personalize and bring to work or school in order to not be famished. Fill it with water or juice drinks to quench your thirst during this holy season.
Each water bottle varies in terms of design, style, material used, amount of liquid it can accommodate, price, color, and so much more. But every bottle can personalized with your own theme, image or picture, and text. You can print encouraging texts or quotes such as “Ramadan Mubarak” or “Ramadan Kareem” to remind yourself of the reason for this season in Islam.
