Why is Ramadan Feast called Sugar Feast in Turkiye?

 

The answer comes from the Ottoman Period In the Ottoman period, after the first 15 days of Ramadan, trays of sweets were sent to the soldiers. Thus, the people started to make sweets during the Ramadan Feasts, children went to buy candy with their holiday allowances, and even candy began to be distributed to children instead of money. In this way, giving and receiving candy during Ramadan Feast, which has become a tradition, has given its name to Eid al-Fitr over time. In short, the reason why Ramadan Feast is called Sugar Feast is entirely due to interaction and traditions.

 


Ramadan is the month of opportunities. The Quran was started to be downloaded in this month. The Night of Power, which is better than a thousand months in Ramadan, coincides with Wednesday, June 21, 2017. The Night of Power is an auspicious and blessed night. Five pillars of Islam; to bring the word of shaha smileda, to go on pilgrimage, to give alms, to pray and to fast. Fasting, which is one of the five pillars of Islam, is a great reward. Fasting without an excuse in Ramadan causes great sin. If a person who does not fast has an excuse, not fasting is not considered a sin. Care should be taken to keep the fasts on time. Fasting outside the month of Ramadan is not equivalent to fasting in this blessed month.

 

 It contains many wisdoms in the month of Ramadan. It has social and individual benefits for people. Fasting in the month of Ramadan should not be thought of only as starving the body. Fasting people better understand the hunger they experience and the plight of poor people. Aid to the poor increases. Those who fast understand even better the value of various blessings given by Allah. Fasting is not just about stopping drinking and eating. While fasting, people should keep their eyes, hands, ears, tongue and all their limbs away from committing sins.
