Celebrating Sustainably - Tread Lightly, this Eid

Celebrating Sustainably - Tread Lightly, this Eid

It is a special time of the year for Muslims across the globe. Millions of devout Muslims are keeping a roza (daily fast from dawn to dusk) to observe the holy month of Ramadan and can’t wait to celebrate Eid at the end of this 30-day fasting tomorrow. Balance, moderation, and abstinence from reckless temptation is the most important message of Islam. As you celebrate Eid this year, take it as an opportunity to imbibe this message in all that you do. Not only is this a great way of life but is also the need of the hour for protecting our environment.

The Tradition of Ramadan

Ramadan 2018 begins today, Tuesday the 15th of May and ends on the evening of Thursday the 14th of June.  Ramadan is regarded as the holiest season of the Islamic calendar and one of the five pillars of Islam.  It takes place in the 9th month as determined by the lunar Islamic calendar and as such falls on a different date each year. Ramadan is a month of fasting that commemorates the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad, according to Islamic belief.
