Ramadan Kareem


Welcome to


Ramadan, Arabic Ramaḍān, in Islam, the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the holy month of fasting. It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon. Because the Muslim calendar year is shorter than the Gregorian calendar year, Ramadan begins 10–12 days earlier each year, allowing it to fall in every season throughout a 33-year cycle. Ramadan lasts from Monday, April 12 to Tuesday, May 11 or May 12 in 2021. 
For ALMA and for the Sri Lankan Muslim community Ramadan is a extra special month of spiritual activities as well as for community gathering.   Each Year ALMA hold the above stated activities for its members during the month of Ramadan.   For more details of each event please visit the ALMA event calendar.
For all ALMA events, the registered members are notified prior to the event by email and on whatsapp.
Preparing for Ramadan
1- Supplicate Allah to prolong your life to attend Ramadan, bless it for you,
accept your good deeds in it and forgive your shortcomings.
2- Make a sincere repentance from all sins and evil deeds, regret them, and
ask Allah to help you not to turn again to them.
3- Keep away from the misdeeds that displease Allah and incur his Wrath
upon you.
4- Always renew your repentance to Allah and your commitment with Him.
5- Strive to observe the obligatory prayers at their due times in
congregation so that it will be easy for you to continue on this in and after
6- If you are not in the habit of offering the supererogatory prayers, try to
do some of them and move on to do all of them.
7- Rectify your intention, make all your actions sincerely to Allah, the
Almighty, Alone.
8- As the utmost goal of fasting is attaining Taqwa (righteousness and fear
of God), facilitate its realization by the different means of Taqwa, such as
remembering Allah, reading about the stories of the earlier generations,
contemplation on the Qu’ran, thinking about death and the Hereafter, and so
Alhamdulillah, I am so delighted that ALMA has planned a well organized Ramadan activity program for this year, and I wish the committee all success.
