Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan Kareem to one and all…. 

People might feel when they read an article about Ramadan in my blog. They will be surprised whether I have become or converted myself to Islam or they might think that I am like “Be like a Roman when you are in Rome”. All of this are not true. Wherever I am I am an Indian and I am true to my religion.

I am fascinated towards Islam, because of the contents that are in the Quran and also because of some people who are trying to expose themselves as true Muslim. I started learning about Islam through my neighbor Farooq. I have to say that I got inspiration to learn my religion after seeing him following his religion.

For each and everything, he will say that we have to do this, we have to follow this, It is said like this in Quran. I used to tell him that I have not seen anyone like you who is following Islam so sincerely. He used to tell us, even we are not following everything what is said in Quran.

I came to know how much ignorant I am and I am from India and we say our country is secular country and we have all the religions. I do follow my Indian principle of Secularism, I go to Church and I have been to a Mosque also.

What do I know about Azaan or Adhan?

People will laugh at me, if I tell the truth that I was not aware of the reason of the Azaan also that it is the call for the prayer for the Muslim guys. I used to feel that some music is being played and even though I have seen men going in group for prayers.

Now my day doesn’t ends if I don’t hear the Azaan at least once in a day whether I am here in UAE or in India. Either I will hear it or I will look at my watch for the prayer time. I have the feeling for the Azaan more than a Muslim and if I don’t hear it I will feel as if they didn’t call them for the prayers.

Now I follow the following so religiously more than a Muslim, because I know the importance of Azaan.

As the Azaan is being heard, one must not indulge in any talk, or indulge in any other activities. Listen to the Azaan attentively and reply to it. I don’t know why we should not talk when the Azaan is being heard. I used to stop talking even if it was an international call or a call with a close friend. I assumed that it is because the other person who has to go for prayer has to listen the Azaan and that is the reason that they want everyone to be quite. I may be wrong or the reason for it might be something else also, but I follow it because a two year old son of Farooq used to mute the Television, saying that Baang is there, keep quite.

I really felt so amazing with their way of following the religion.

  1. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people
    do not speak about these issues. To the next!
    All the best!!
