Welcoming رمضان (Ramadhan).

Salam, good day. Oooh...Ramadhan is very near now, Alhamdulillah. The Syariah Court of Brunei Darussalam has confirmed, the country's religious authorities will be conducting the Ramadhan moon sighting on August 20th at the designated locations: Bukit Shahbandar in Brunei-Muara district, Bukit Ambok and Bukit Agok in Tutong district and Bukit Lumut in Belait district. These locations will also be used to monitor the sighting of the new moon of Syawal. Ramadan is an Islamic religious observance that takes place during the ninth month of Hijrah calendar. The holy Quran was also revealed during the month of Ramadhan to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. It is the Islamic month of fasting in which Muslims forbids from eating, drinking, sexual conduct, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. Ramadan is a time to fast for the sake of Allah, and to offer more prayer than usual. Muslims also believed through good actions, they get rewarded more than as much as they normally can achieve. During Ramadhan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. So, let's make full use of this upcoming Ramadhan, never let Ramadhan gone that:)
