Nearly 99% of Asian respondents will celebrate Muslim this year, according to TGM Research
There are 1.9 billion Muslims worldwide and 97% of them will celebrate Ramadan.
A Month of Renewal and Rejoicing
According to TGM Global Ramadan Survey 2023, 92% of Muslims “like Ramadan because they can spend time with their family”. Beyond the traditional acts of fasting and worship, Ramadan also provides an opportunity for families to come together and strengthen bonds between themselves, as well as with Allah. Family meals, shared traditions, and acts of charity often bring families closer, creating a sense of unity and love that lasts beyond the holy month.
The Spiritual Month
In the time of spiritual renewal and self-reflection, giving to charity and helping those in need are considered virtuous acts in Islam. Muslims are encouraged to be generous and compassionate, especially towards the less fortunate members of society during the holy month. The practice of giving to charity not only benefits the recipients but also helps the giver attain greater spiritual fulfillment and purify their soul. 70% of survey respondents plan to give to charity during Ramadan this year, notably in Africa at 75%.
The Long-Awaited Return to Normalcy
Following a period of isolation, this much-awaited respite presents a welcome opportunity to partake in the heartwarming traditions, boundless generosity, and sense of community that characterizes Ramadan. With only 27% of Muslims apprehensive about the COVID-19 threat, this year's Ramadan heralds a return to the familiar, where togetherness and the resilience of the community are celebrated with great fervor.
