Details

Ramadan begins in the evening of Sunday, May 5 and lasts up to 29 or 30 days, ending approximately on Tuesday, June 4. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and a time when Muslims fast during daylight hours to commemorate the first revelation of the Qur'an. For Muslims, fasting represents many things, including self control, perspective, reflection, gratefulness and devotion. Fasting is intended to bring the faithful closer to God and to remind one of the suffering of those less fortunate. It is seen as a way to physically and spiritually purify oneself. Muslims often donate to charity and feed the hungry during the holy month of Ramadan, while also spending more time at mosques and reciting the Qur'an.
