(salam)

In Muslim nations and regions around the globe, this is the first week of the holy month of Ramadan, a time for followers to abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity during the day, breaking their fast each sunset, with traditional meals and sweets. During this time, Muslims are also encouraged to read the entire Quran, to give freely to those in need, and strengthen their ties to God through prayer. The goal of the fast is to teach humility, patience and sacrifice, and to ask forgiveness, practice self-restraint, and pray for guidance in the future. This year, Ramadan will continue until Saturday, September 19th.

I don't know if anyone noticed but this is Darbaar-e-Yazeed (LA) and there are 7 guys doing the azan..a tradition which Yazeed started to drown out the voice of Bibi Zainab's (sa) Khutba...

I have never read or heard of that tradition, could you post a reference? By the way, those are eight men reciting adhaan - not seven. :P

I always was good at math...

Those are powerful images. That is quite a production. People must be working very hard during the hottest time of the day to prepare for this. Really, really impressive! It is especially nice to see a pic of women eating. :)

Amazing pictures! Just looking at them, one is enthralled and can feel the spiritual aura and fervour which this holy month brings with it. Makes me wish, I was at Imam's (a) shrine, serving his guests.

Thanks for sharing.

Mashallah, very touching. Thank you so much for sharing, it brought tears to my eyes.

I wish I lived in a Muslim country, for the month of Ramadhan at least. Ramadhaan feels so plain in the country I live. It's been almost 20 years since I last was in a Muslim country, I don't remember anything...I only look at these pictures and envy these people...Ah, it hurts!...
