On May 6th, Muslims across the world welcomed the holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is a big deal in The Gambia. For the country’s overwhelming Muslim population, the holy month is a time to re-connect with God, family, and prayer.

During the month, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from sunrise until sunset.

In addition to its religious importance, Ramadan also sparks a boom for smaller, local businesses, and promotes a culture of good-will, spiritual awareness and self-reflection.

The Chronicle’s photographer, Momodou Saine, turns his lens to the streets to capture the essence of Ramadan in The Gambia.

    PROPHET MUHAMMED IS THE RETURNED CHRIST.
    In the Bible Jesus of Nazareth said this about the one that will come after him in John 16:12-13

    “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of Truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

    It has been recorded that the enemies of Prophet Muhammed taunted him by saying that he was “all ears.”

    They said that Muhammed was only saying what he heard from someone else.

    The Creator of the Heavens and Earth, responded to their taunts by revealing a verse in the Qur’an, saying that Muhammed heard what was best for humanity

    The Holy Qur’an contains what the Angel Gabriel gave to Muhammed. It contains nothing of Muhammed’s own words or thoughts.

    Muhammed could neither read nor write.
