The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.
[Quran: Chapter 2:183]

Ramadan Begins in Singapore on August 22 2009 | Ramadan Schedule for Singapore

When Does Ramadan 2009 Begins in Singapore?

Dear Singaporean Readers,

It has been announced by the Singapore Mufti that Ramadan 2009 (1429H) will begin in Singapore on August 22, 2009 on Saturday.

Ramadan Mubarak and Ramadan Kareem to all Muslims.

The message from the President of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore is below:

The President,
Council Members & Staff of
The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore
Wishes All

A Blessed Ramadan 2008/1429H

Praises be to Allah, the Most Merciful and the Most Forgiving
Greetings of peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)

Let us together express our thankfulness to Allah for we are here to welcome the glorious month of Ramadan again, and for the opportunity to worship in this month full of blessings.

In performing our fast, the thought of how weak and hungry we are would often permeate our minds. But fasting is not merely abstaining from food and drink during the day. This is because the act of fasting not only tests our physical endurance, it also trains us in the patience needed in battling our desires, encourages sympathy for the disadvantaged, and distances ourselves from unprofitable activities.

Fasting empowers the Muslim community so that we remain resilient in the face of challenges. This is in accordance with the Prophetic saying that “fasting is a shield.”

Let us make this Ramadan a month for penitence, and for us to treasure its excellence. Let us seize this opportunity, together with our families and friends, to experience God’s grace and mercy, in order for us to be a spiritually strong and modern Singapore Muslim community.

May Allah bless all our worship and devotion this Ramadan, Amin.

Please find below the Ramadan Schedule for 2009 in Singapore. It shows the time (imsak) when you have to stop eating and drinking, and the prayer times, including the time for breaking your fast.

Special Ramadan Series

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
