Ramadan is a month of renewal, redemption and purity.

As Muslims try to elevate their spiritual experience by immersing themselves in Islamic practice; they also encounter a few ‘personal’ challenges. Let us celebrate the essence of Ramadan and the quirks that make us human.

| RAMADAN FAST FACTS |

1. During Ramadan, observant Muslims abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn to dusk.

2. Fasting is an exercise in self-restraint and is one of Islam’s five pillars, alongside: declaration of faith; prayer five times a day; alms-giving; and the pilgrimage to holy sites in Saudi Arabia.

3. The month is also marked by a special nightly prayer called β€œtaraweeh.”

4. Ramadan is particularly significant to Muslims because it was the month when the first verses of Koran were revealed to the prophet Mohammed in the 7th century AD.
