What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is part of the Islamic calendar and is the ninth month of the Muslim year. It is a time when Muslims celebrate Allah’s message to Muhammad, the words of the Qur’an, by dedicating themselves to prayer and family. During Ramadan Muslims are expected to fast – not eat or drink – during daylight hours. Each day, Muslims traditionally break their fast with a meal at sunset called the iftar.
