How do you respond to Ramadan Mubarak?.

When someone greets you with “Ramadan Mubarak”, the expected responses are “Khair Mubarak” – which wishes goodness back on the person who originally greeted you.

Ramadan, one of the months in the Islamic calendar, was also part of ancient Arabs’ calendars. The naming of Ramadan stems from the Arabic root “ar-ramad,” which means scorching heat. Muslims believe that in A.D. 610, the angel Gabriel appeared to Prophet Muhammad and revealed to him the Quran, the Islamic holy book.

Both ‘Ramadan Kareem’ and ‘Ramadan Mubarak’ are common expressions used during the month of Ramadan. Both mean “have a blessed or generous Ramadan”. Did you know that the appropriate response to ‘Ramadan Kareem’ is ‘Allahu Akram’? It means “God is much more generous”.
