Ramadan 2020 : horaires et dates, origine, tout savoir sur le jeûne

LifeStyle
Origines du Ramadan : Cette période majeure représente l'un des 5 piliers de l'Islam, avec le Pèlerinage, l'Aumône, la Prière et la Profession de Foi. Ce "Mois saint" est celui où le Coran est révélé à Mahomet, et pour honorer sa spiritualité les musulmans doivent respecter des règles précises. Ramadan est aussi le nom du 9e mois du calendrier lunaire hégirien et se traduit par "chaleur intense". Bien avant l’arrivée de l’Islam dans le monde arabe, on retrouve également la célébration des chaleurs de l’été.
