    Not going to be fasting this time. I don't have the patience, energy, and the willpower to do so.

    Good luck everyone.

    Ramadan is the actual word while Ramazan is the Pakistani pronunciation

    Kind of like how some people in Pakistan pronounce biscuits as Biskuts .

    Yes, but the closest equivalent to the Arabic ض in English is the "d", which is why Ramadhaan is often simply written as Ramadan. However, technically, it should be written as Ramadhaan and not Ramadan.

    In the word Ramadan/Ramadhaan, the ض is pronounced as "dh" in Arabic.

    However, because of the heavy Persian influence on Urdu, the ض is pronounced as a "z".

    Hence, in Urdu, it is Ramzaan. To each their own, but to see Pakistanis called it Ramadan/Ramadhaan is a bit of pet peeve of mine.

    Same goes for the word Wudhu, which is Wuzu in Urdu. It is interesting to note that Pakistanis do not call Wuzu Wudhu, and they bring out the inner Arabic speaker in them only when it comes to the word Ramzaan.

    As far as biscuit/biskut is concerned, the actual word for biscuit in Urdu is "khatai". However, that word tends to be strictly used for shortbread biscuits only "nankhatai".

    Biscuit is usually called biskut because of the accent, and not because it is an actual word for biscuit in Urdu. However, Ramzaan is an actual word in Urdu, because of the fact that its dialect is different from Arabic and heavily influenced by the softer and milder Persian.

    Pakistanis trying to be more Arabic I guess. Just like seeing them saying 'Suhoor, Mabrook' etc.

    I'm not going to munch 3700 calories in 6 hours. It's about my nutrition, not working out. I could have made time for gym if I wanted to, that's a lighter issue.

    I'm not a religious person when it comes to the everyday stuff, I don't like to pretend. It does not make sense for me to fast in the first place.

    Sad to see people focusing over petty issues.

    Relax and enjoy the month, folks. It'll be over soon enough.

    Common sense says it should be a non-issue. When speaking English or any other language besides Urdu I say "Ramadan" because those languages have borrowed the original word from Arabic. However when speaking Urdu it is only second nature to say "Ramzaan".
