What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is a significant month-long period observed by Muslims worldwide, representing a time of spiritual reflection, fasting, prayer, and community. During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food, drink, smoking, and other physical needs from dawn until sunset, practising self-discipline and empathy for those less fortunate.

In addition to fasting, Ramadan is a time for Muslims to get closer to Allah and deeper their sense of community through prayer, reading of the Quran, and acts of charity. Ramadan concludes with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the fasting period with prayers, feasting, and the exchange of gifts.
