Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, will start from April 12 and is celebrated for 29-30 days. During this period, Muslims worldwide observe a fast from sunrise to sunset and spend their time in remembrance of Allah. It is said that fasting, which is referred to as Sawm, is one of the five pillars of Islam and hence observed during the holy month. They follow strict discipline by keeping rozas and avoiding alcohol. They also read verses from the Holy Quran, offer their prayers (Salat) to Allah and get together for the Iftaar (or the meal after sunset) during Ramadan.

According to the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is observed during the ninth month. The beginning of Ramadan month is determined as per the first sighting of the crescent moon and conclude on the next which is also known as Eid-ul-Fitr. Ramadan is celebrated to commemorate the month when the teachings of the Holy Quran were first introduced to Prophet Muhammed.

Ramzan 2021 dates in India:

Since the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar movement, the dates vary every year in the Gregorian calendar. In 2021, Ramadan or Ramzan will begin on April 12 and end on May 11. The last day of Ramadan is called Eid-ul-Fitr, which is considered the holiest day in Islam.

Adults observe fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramzan. Chronically ill patients, the elderly, pregnant/ breastfeeding/ menstruating women and the kids are exempted from the roza.

How is Ramadan observed?

The roza (fasting) begins before sunrise and ends with sunset. Muslims are exempted from consuming food and water during the roza period. However, they take a pre-dawn meal called Suhur and break their fast by having iftaar. They also offer prayer during dawn which is known as called Fajr, followed by Zhuhr in midday, Asr in the afternoon, Maghrib at the time of sunset and Isha in the night.

Significance of Ramadan:

It is believed that the Holy Quran first came on the Earth from heaven during the month of Ramadan and was introduced to Prophet Muhammed. The night when the incident took place is known as Laylat al-Qadr. Hence, it is quite significant for Muslims.

Woman Gives Birth To 9 Babies | Created New World Record

It’s a new world record has been set for the most number of birth given at a time, with a shocking number of 9 in total.

Published

A Malian woman gave birth to nine babies on Tuesday – two more than doctors had detected inside her crowded womb – joining a small pantheon of mothers of nonuplets.

The pregnancy of Halima Cisse, 25, has fascinated the West African nation and attracted the attention of its leaders. When doctors in March said Cisse needed specialist care, authorities flew her to Morocco, where she gave birth.

“The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all doing well,” Mali’s health minister, Fanta Siby, said in a statement.

Cisse was expected to give birth to seven babies, according to ultrasounds conducted in Morocco and Mali that missed two of the siblings. All were delivered by cesarean section.

Nonuplets are extremely rare. Medical complications in multiple births of this kind often mean that some of the babies do not reach full term.

The new mother had no idea she was pregnant and gave birth at just 29 weeks

Published

Lavinia Mounga boarded a Delta flight to Honolulu, expecting to have a relaxing family vacation. Hours later, Mounga would land in Hawaii with a newborn baby boy, named Raymond, in her arms.

The new mother had no idea she was pregnant and gave birth at just 29 weeks, according to The Associated Press

On Wednesday, about halfway through the flight from Salt Lake City, a medical emergency was announced by the flight’s captain and four passengers ran to Mounga’s aid.

Hawaii Pacific Health family medicine physician Dale Glenn and North Kansas City Hospital neonatal intensive care unit nurses Lani Bamfield, Amanda Beeding, and Mimi Ho helped Mounga deliver her son and monitored the baby’s health for several hours.

Glenn told USA TODAY that an infant’s first minute of life is vital and that without the intervention of the three nurses, the baby might not have survived. While in labor, Glenn said, Mounga passed out, most likely from shock. 

“Myself and the nurses’ survival mode kicked in; we had to create an ICU unit within an airline,” Glenn said. “Plus, we didn’t just have one patient, we had two.”

The impromptu medical team was able to create makeshift medical equipment, in part thanks to Glenn’s wilderness training. Glenn said they used multiple shoelaces to cut the baby’s umbilical cord, and an Apple Watch was used to monitor the baby’s heart rate. To keep the premature baby warm, bottles of water were microwaved, and the nurses wrapped him in plastic. 

Glenn said the passengers were “surprisingly calm” and offered their own diapers and blankets to help the mother and son. Glenn also applauded Mounga’s strength; he said she was up and walking minutes after her delivery.

A Delta spokesperson told USA TODAY that all crews are “well-trained” to manage on-board medical scenarios. 

“Every aircraft is equipped with medical equipment and crews have access to expert counsel during the flight when an issue occurs,” Delta spokesman Anthony Black told USA TODAY.

The four passengers worked to keep Mounga and baby Raymond safe for three hours until the plane landed. Once they arrived in Honolulu, the mother and baby were taken to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.

In a TikTok video shared by Julia Hansen, passengers can be seen cheering and congratulating Mounga as she leaves the plane. The video has garnered more than 13 million views.

Hansen and a friend she was flying with, Siearra Rowlan, told The Washington Post the emergency initially caused a commotion, but other passengers were “casual” about it by the end of the flight.

“Everyone just kind of got up, got their carry-on and left,” Hansen said of the scene after Mounga and her son were escorted off first.

On Friday, Glenn, Bamfield, Beeding and Ho were reunited with Mounga and her son at the medical center.

“(Mounga) is an incredible person. She got on this flight for a vacation and instantly became a mother. But she’s handling it so positively, it’s great to see,” Glenn said.

Mounga has since been discharged, while her son, Raymond, remained in the neonatal unit.
