What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. This is a time for people to get together and pray, it’s a time for spiritual reflection, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends. Muslims also make a special effort to connect with their communities and reach out to the people who need help, feed the hungry and often donate to charities during the month.
The fast is intended to bring the faithful closer to God and to remind them of the suffering of those less fortunate. Fasting is an exercise in self-restraint. It’s seen as a way to physically and spiritually detoxify by kicking impulses like morning coffee, smoking and midday snacking.
Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, they can’t eat or drink anything, not even water, so please be mindful of this when around your friends.
