HRH Prince Moulay Rachid raises public awareness about Ramadan
Tangier-Morocco, September 21, 2007 -- In the framework of celebrating the holy month of Ramadan, His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid chaired Friday lecture at Mohamad V mosque, in the northern city of Tangier.
Muslims around the world recognize Ramadan as the month in which the Qur'an was discovered. Ramadan is divided into three 10-day weeks. The 10-day segments are known as "Rahmah," which means mercy of God; "Maghfirah," or forgiveness of God; and "Najah," which means salvation.
Observers of the month emphasize charity, self-discipline and a renewed commitment to Islam and the Qu'ran.
