Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Kareem: What's the Difference? Meaning in German
“Ramadan Kareem” is understood in the sense that Ramadan should be generous to the fasting Muslims. Some Muslims prefer “Ramadan Mubarak” because “Ramadan Kareem” is a contradiction in terms for them. Ramadan cannot in itself be generous, but in Islamic belief it is Allah who is generous.
Both wishes - Ramadan Kareem and Ramadan Mubarak - have only positive intentions. Here it depends on the Muslims to whom one of the wishes is said and how they rate the wish. If you want to be on the safe side, say “Ramadan Mubarak”!

Ramadan is the most important month in the Islamic calendar and one of the most important festivals. Since the Islamic calendar is based on the moon, Ramadan shifts annually.
During Ramadan, fasting Muslims remember the moment when their prophet Mohammed received the first verses of the Koran from God. With fasting, Muslims want to renounce all earthly needs during the day in order to get closer to God.
During Ramadan, eating and drinking is prohibited between sunrise and sunset. Gambling, smoking, alcohol and sexual intercourse are also prohibited.
