My query concerns the phrase "Ramzaan Kariim". It is used in a similar way to when one says "3iid Mubaarak" (Happy 3iid). Now that it is the first day of Ramzaan Shariif, one is showered with this greeting. To me, this particular greeting is relatively new since I have always known "Ramzaan Mubaarak". Is it a "new" development amongst Muslims of the Subcontinent or have I been living in a cocoon? Ramzaan Kariim/Mubaarak everyone!
