Ramadan, observed by Muslims around the world, is a sacred and significant time in the Islamic calendar. This month-long period of fasting and spiritual reflection holds deep importance for Muslims. As Christians, it is essential that we seek to understand and respect Ramadan as an opportunity to learn and grow in interfaith understanding and compassion.

During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, and other physical needs from dawn until sunset. The fast is seen as a time of self-discipline, purification, and increased devotion to God. It is also a month of intense prayer, reflection on the Quran, and acts of charity. The fast is broken with a meal called iftar, and many Muslims engage in special nightly prayers called Taraweeh.

As followers of Christ, we can use Ramadan as a reminder to pray for our Muslim neighbors and friends. It is an opportunity to reflect on the similarities and differences in our faith traditions and to extend love and understanding to our Muslim brothers and sisters.

One of the most important ways we can pray during Ramadan is to intercede for Muslims' salvation. Let’s earnestly pray that they may encounter the transforming love and grace of Jesus Christ. As we witness their dedication to fasting, prayer, and acts of charity, let it serve as a reminder of the spiritual hunger that exists within every human soul. Pray that their hearts may be open to the truth of the gospel and that they may come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Should you feel called, consider fasting for a day during Ramadan, using the fast to focus on praying for unreached Muslims. This year, Ramadan lasts from March 10th until April 9th.
