Can you say “Ramadan Mubarak”?
If a Muslim asks you, “Is it permissible to say “Ramadan Mubarak“?”, Then the answer is that it is absolutely permissible. Why is that? The answer is the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak” is a sentence that shows that Ramadan is a month full of blessings.
There are many blessings during Ramadan. Some examples are that if a Muslim worships during Ramadan, he will be very much rewarded; that during Ramadan, they are required to fast for one month and they will get a reward which they cannot calculate and do not foresee; that during the month of Ramadan all the demons are tied up so that they cannot seduce the Muslims. Those are some examples of blessings during Ramadan.
So, we are very allowed to say the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak”.
What is the difference between Ramadan Kareem and Ramadan Mubarak?
If a Muslim asks you about the difference between “Ramadan Kareem” and “Ramadan Mubarak”, then the answer is, that the difference is in the word “Kareem” and the word “Mubarak”. In Arabic, the meaning of the word “Kareem” is noble, while the meaning of the word “Mubarak” is full of blessings.
Specifically, we can understand the phrase “Ramadan Kareem” as an expression of how glorious Ramadan is. As for the phrase “Ramadan Mubarak”, we can understand it as an expression of the many blessings that exist during Ramadan.
Although there is a difference between the sentence “Ramadan Kareem” and the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak”, these two sentences are expressions to glorify Ramadan. Apart from that, these two sentences also explain how much good there is during Ramadan.
Why is Ramadan celebrated?
If a Muslim asks you, “Why is Ramadan celebrated?”, The answer is because Ramadan is a very glorious and blessed month for Muslims. But celebrating Ramadan should not be done carelessly. We are not allowed to throw a party to celebrate Ramadan like the parties used to be done by many people.
So, how do you celebrate Ramadan?
The best way to celebrate Ramadan is by reading the Quran, performing prayers, giving alms to poor people. If we are not able to do all that, then we only need to fast for one month during Ramadan, because fasting during Ramadan is our duty.
So, one thing about celebrating Ramadan that we have to understand is that it shouldn’t burden us. The point is that we don’t have to spend a lot of money to celebrate Ramadan. But if we spend a lot of money on charity, if it doesn’t make us feel heavy, then it’s very good for us to do.
Can we say “Happy Ramadan”?
If a Muslim asks you, “Can we say” Happy Ramadan “?”, The answer is we can say that. The reason is that Ramadan is a month full of goodness and a very good month for Muslims to worship and wash away sins or repent.
Basically, Muslims should be happy when Ramadan comes. They should thank Allah because Ramadan which brings so much good has come and they have not passed away. There are many useful things they can do during Ramadan and they will be rewarded a lot. That’s why they should be happy.
One of the most common ways to express joy is to say congratulations. So, if we say “Happy Ramadan” to another Muslim, it means that we are happy for ourselves and for that Muslim.
What is the correct greeting for Ramadan?
If a Muslim asks you, “What is the correct greeting for Ramadan?”, The answer is that all good sayings are correct for Ramadan.
In general, there are three sayings for Ramadan and for all Muslims during Ramadan. The three sayings I mean are “Ramadan Kareem”, “Ramadan Mubarak”, and “Happy Ramadan”. I have explained it all.
So, there is no such thing as an appropriate greeting for Ramadan. All kind wishes are proper greetings for Ramadan. It all depends on what our goals are. So, we can say “Ramadan Kareem”, or “Ramadan Mubarak”, or “Happy Ramadan”.
What is the answer to Ramadan Kareem?
If a Muslim asks you, “What is the answer to the saying” Ramadan Kareem “?”, The answer is “Ramadan Kareem”. The reason is that the saying “Ramadan Kareem” is a greeting to say that Ramadan is a glorious month. So, if we answer the words “Ramadan Karem” which describes the glory of Ramadan with the words “Ramadan Kareem”, then it is as if we are affirming existence, that Ramadan is a glorious month.
We can make an analogy of the answer “Ramadan Kareem” with the answer to the greeting Salaam (Assalaamualaikum). Salaam’s speech is prayer so that someone will always receive salvation. So, the answer to saying Salaam is with Salaam (Waalaikum Salaam) which also means prayer, so that the person who recites Salaam also gets salvation.
What to say after Ramadan ends?
If a Muslim asks you, “What to say after Ramadan ends?”, The answer is to thank Allah because He has given us the opportunity to worship during Ramadan and pray to Allah that He will give us the opportunity to worship again during the Ramada on next year. These are all things we should say after Ramadan ends. Why is that?
We already know that Ramadan is a month full of blessings. That is, if Ramadan has ended then we must thank Allah because He has given us the opportunity to get this blessing. In addition, we also have to pray to Allah so that we can get this blessing in the following year.
