The month of Ramadhan

For over one billion Muslims throughout the world, Ramadhan is a special month of the year. During the month of Ramadhan, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset every day. Ramadhan was the month in which the first verses of the holy Qur'an were revealed to Prophet Mohammad. It is a time for inner reflection, devotion to God and self-control. The sighting of the new moon at the end of Ramadhan heralds the celebration of Aidilfitri.

As a non-muslim, I respect my muslim friends who is fasting.. I still remember when we were outstation in JB, I woke up early for 'sahur' and went to work. At the end of the day, we will head for places to "berbuka puasa" with others... I must say, even as a non-muslim, the month of Ramadhan is also a very exciting month for me.

I would like to wish my muslim friends... Selamat Menyambut Puasa Ramadhan.
