What is Ramadan..?

Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world abstain from eating, drinking and smoking between sunrise and sunset. Non-Muslims as well are obliged to respect the fasting practices in public, so if you do have to leave the house for any reason during the day, please ensure you refrain from any of the above activities.Ramadan marks the time when the Qur’an was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

Traditionally, extra tarawih prayers are performed throughout Ramadan and each evening 1/30th of the holy book is recited.Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, which are the foundation of the religion.

The pillars are the framework by which Muslims everywhere live, and Ramadan is considered the holiest time in the Islamic calendar. It is a time for prayer, reflection and religious devotion, to cleanse past sins and to focus on Allah through good deeds.
