“What is Ramadan Mubarak?”. I think that is one of the most common questions about Ramadan which is usually asked by Muslims who do not understand Arabic. Why is it associated with Arabic? The answer is very clear! Because the term “Ramadan Mubarak” is an Arabic term that is often spoken by Muslims. Thus, if we want to know the meaning of the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak”, then we must understand Arabic.
Writing the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak” in Arabic is like this: رَمَضَانُ مُبَارَكٌ. There are two words in the sentence. The first is Ramadan (رَمَضَانُ). The second is Mubarak (مُبَارَكٌ). So, if we want to know the meaning of the sentence “Ramadan Mubarak”, then we must know the meaning of these two words.
In Arabic the meaning of the word Ramadan (رَمَضَانُ) is burning. But it is better known as the name of a month for Arabs in general, and for Muslims in particular. The meaning of the word Mubarak (مُبَارَكٌ) is the blessed one.
So, if we understand the meaning of these two words, then we understand that the meaning of the phrase “Ramadan Mubarak (رَمَضَانُ مُبَارَكٌ)” is blessed Ramadan. We can also understand that Ramadan is a month that has a lot of blessings.

What is meant by “Blessed Ramadan or Ramadan has many blessings” is that Ramadan has many luxuries that other months in Islam do not have. Some examples of luxuries that only Ramadan has and that other months don’t have, such as Sha’ban, Rajab, Shawal, and so on, are as follows:
One: Ramadan is the month when the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad for the first time.
Two: Ramadan is a month of fasting for Muslims.
Three: Ramadan is a month of worship for Muslims, and so on.
Such luxuries are what make Ramadan blessed. But what we have to understand here is that each month in Islam has its own privileges.
