Ramadan is a “holy month observed by Muslims who follow Islam. It is observed through fasting, reflection, and prayer and commemorates the period when the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) received the first revelations of the Quran, the holy scripture of Islam.
Sawm (fasting) is the fourth pillar of Islam, and Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset throughout Ramadan, while also striving to maintain clean minds and actions.
Muslims celebrate the end of each day’s fast by eating a meal with loved ones, and the end of Ramadan is marked by Eid ul-Fitr, a three-day festival that is one of the most important festivals in the Islamic calendar.
Ramadan occurs in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and in 2023, it began on the evening of March 23 and will last for 30 days, closing at sundown on Thursday, April 21.”
