"Ramadan Kareem” - Enjoy A Blessed and Happy Ramadan!

Updated: Feb 22



As Muslims around the world observe another sacred Ramadan, the Liberian Swedish Association, LSA, extends warm wishes to all Muslims, especially to our Muslim members, with a heartfelt "Ramadan Kareem"! May this blessed month bring you joy, peace, and spiritual fulfillment.


Here are a few key facts about Ramadan:

Ramadan falls in the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, regarded as the holiest period for Muslims worldwide.


During Ramadan, Muslims engage in heightened spiritual devotion and physical discipline through fasting from dawn until dusk. This practice, ordained in the Quran, entails abstaining from food, drink, and other physical indulgences during daylight hours throughout the month.

At sunset, Muslims gather with family and friends to break their fast with a meal known as Iftar. This communal act symbolizes gratitude and unity, followed by the Maghrib prayer, one of the five daily prayers in Islam.


Ramadan is a time for self-reflection, prayer, and acts of charity. Muslims strive to read the entire Quran during this month, attending mosque prayers and study sessions. Additionally, they are encouraged to give generously to those in need, with many mosques and charitable organizations organizing food drives and other initiatives.


According to Islamic tradition, Ramadan traces its origins to the seventh century when the Prophet Muhammad received the first verses of the Quran, the holy scripture of Islam. The revelation of the Quran began on the 27th night of Ramadan, known as Laylat al-Qadr, or the Night of Power. Muslims believe this night to be the holiest of the year, worth more than a thousand months of prayers.


May the blessings of Ramadan illuminate your path, bring you closer to Allah, and enrich your life with faith and compassion.


Ramadan Mubarak!
