Shocking new statements indicate that Ramadan is a German tradition that predates Oktoberfest. Sources allege that Ramadan is 100% a German tradition and completely belongs in Germany.
“Fasting in the month of Ramadan has long been part of the German religious landscape. It is a German reality. To break the fast in the evening, many people gather in Germany to eat together and to meet each other,” Güvercin said.
The reality is that the tradition of Ramadan actually became part of Muslim tradition in early forms of Islam in about the year 560 after the Muhammed’s best friend Abu went on vacation in Vienna. He brought that tradition back to the Middle East.
