In a bid to propagate more Islamic knowledge during the observance of fasting this Ramadhan, a Moro women organization hold “Ramadhan Symposium” exclusive for women at Zamboanga City on the Wednesdays and Fridays of this holy month.

Al-Muminat, a group of Muslim women who actively engaged in Da’wah, hosts the activity from 1 to 3:30 in the afternoon on June 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24 and 29 and on July 1 at Amil’s Convention Hall, Amil Tower, Pilar Street in Zamboanga City.

Organizers have invited Mufti Abdulbaki Abubakar and Ustadzas Hermina Kurais, Maira Asilin, Laila Abubakar, Rosaida Abdurauf, Huda Arip, Mona Aiyub and Fatima Munib.

The important topics included Dawrul Mar-Ati Mujtama Al-Islamiy, Asrarus-Siyam, Tahzirul Ummah an Suluk Minhaj Baniy Israil, Al-Bahis Anis Saadah, Ahammiyatussalati fi Hayatil Muslim wa Kayfatahqiquha, Al-Iman bi Yahmil Qiyamah, Addahwatu fil Islam, and Husnul Khuluq.

Aside from fasting, Muslims are encouraged to devote more time to reflect, meditate, read the holy Qur’an, pray Taraweeh and Tahajud at night and acquire more knowledge on Islam.

Fasting during Ramadhan is one of the five pillars of Islam prescribed to both male and female Muslims who are physically fit.

Muslims who fast abstain from eating, drinking, and sexual acts from dawn till sunset. While fasting, they should not engage in gossips, backbiting, fight, and listening to music and hoped that they will sustain such restraint even beyond Ramadhan.
