I'm new here. What is an "arch"? And how would you address it, as you say.

Thanks

If I may. Where I live and work, I have a large number of Muslim colleagues and patients. They originate from all over the Mid-East and Subcontinent (Yemen, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, India, Pakistan, etc.) Some are Shia and some are Sunni.

They all tell me that "Ramadan Mubarak" is the appropriate greeting. Yet here, I have had a number of our Muslim forum members tell me that "Ramadan Kareem" is more appropriate. Why is there this debate?

I use them interchangeably, as my Muslim friends do. A quick internet search tells use that "Ramadan Mubarak" is loosely translated as "Happy Ramadan", while "Ramadan Kareem" is translated as "Generous Ramadan". I've asked one before, a few years ago, and he said it really didn't make a difference.

"Merry Christmas" vs. "Happy Holidays" vs. "Season's Greeting"?

It is only a hard time when you are not the one choosing it. If i like to drop hammers on my foot four weeks in a row once a year, no one would call that a "touch time", everyone would call it self inflicted pain.

Ramadan Kareem ist just as fine as marry Christmas, but all the "oh, no food or drink during daylight, musst be so tough"...it is not tough, it is a hobby.

If you are incapable of wishing those who are observing this holy month good wishes, why don't you just refrain from posting here and starting your own thread castigating those who participate?

Because you can't...your religion is Atheism and it, and your arrogance compel you to insult those that practice religion any chance you get.

Work in your reading comprehension, you can do it!

Don't tell me about your imaginary friend and you will never hear from anything at all about religion.

It is a tough time of year for it . You try going without water or food for 14-16 hours a day during summer. Winter is usually much better for Ramadan. For those that practice their faith, it is a tough experience to go through, but one that they look forward too. I just know it is tougher since the Islamic calendar follows the moon and not the earth's path. I watched coworkers lose 30 pounds during Ramadan when it occurs in the Summer.

My understanding is that Ramadan Mubarak means Blessed Ramadan and Ramadan Kareem means Happy or Grnerous Ramadan.

Why do you care? Why do show such disrespect? What do you think you accomplished with this post? I doubt that it had the effect you were hoping for, unless you are just a troll and you like pissing people off for no reason.

This place would be better off without you. I doubt that anyone would miss you if you deleted your account. Do us all a favor and just leave.

It depends actually. There is a fatwa stating that for those fasting in the upper latitudes in the summer, they have the option of adhering to the fasting times in Makkah, which makes it shorter than the actual time needed for fasting. This however is not a problem I've faced before - living on the equator my fasting period is pretty even whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall.

Anyways, thank you for your wishes MikeDrop. Truly appreciate it.
