Welcome Greeting for Ramadan

This is a traditional greeting to welcome the blessed month of Ramadan. The origin of this greeting is unclear. But what is crystal clear is the command of the Prophet of Allah (upon him be blessings and peace) to honour and serve guests to the best of our ability and means.

The blessed month of Ramadan is certainly an esteemed guest in our lives. The words of this greeting are meant to illustrate the reverence we have for the month and to create a bond with this once-a-year guest.
