Ramadan in USA, the month of patience

Islam is the second largest religion in the world. After the 9/11 Islam is the most widespread religion in Europe and America. The ninth month which is the most valuable in the Islamic calendar is the month of Ramadan.
The month of Ramadan started from the Holy City Mecca to Miami. The Islamic world celebrates this month with all due respect, dignity and commitment by staying away from sin throughout the month while praying  and fasting during the day.

The Muslim community in most parts of the world celebrates Ramadan, including the United States. According to the teachings of Islam and its last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Ramadan is a month to practice to stay away from sin, feel the pain of hunger on behalf those who have nothing to eat. Spend money and buy products in the form of Zakat for the poor.

Ramadan brings significance of peace, fortitude, obligation and remembering the Almighty Allah. Muslims celebrate Ramadan by fasting all day and offer all the prayers throughout the day, giving Zakat and trying to keep themselves away from the sins of the world.

The month of Ramadan not only brings the message to the Muslims, the teachings of God through the last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) practice, but also a message to the non-Muslims, to spread Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and teaches patience and always patient, rest and the best example is the month of Ramadan.

Islam and the Muslims all over the world are facing problems for the last 10 years after the attacks on the World Trade Center, but the group of anti-Muslim still is not able to learn something from them. There are people or groups of people, who portrait Islam in a wrong way tamper with it, but the true Islam is the most peaceful religion in the world and the book of Islam is the Holy Quran which is an excellent guideline to lead a good Muslim life.
